Jumbo money market accounts vs. Jumbo CDs
One advantage a jumbo money market account has over a jumbo CD is liquidity your money is available at any time whereas money invested in a jumbo CD has to remain there for the term of the CD (6 months, 1 year, 5 years or longer) in order to avoid early withdrawal penalties. If you do withdraw money from a jumbo account, though, you may be subject to fees if the balance goes below $100,000.
Accessibility to your funds is another reason to choose a jumbo money market account for your deposits. A jumbo account may come with the ability to write checks although not all banks offer this. As with any financial vehicle, be sure to look at all of the terms and conditions of an account before you deposit your money.
