The yield on 6mo. and 1 yr CDs is inching upward to 7.25%. What would be the benefits of holding a CD over purchasing a bond?

A 5yr Jumbo CDs is paying 9.05%. The return looks great but I wonder about turning over the $100,000 min. & not having it fully insured. FDIC insures accounts up to $100,000 but once the interest on a CD began accruing the amount would go over the maximum insured amount and therefore lose the benefit of being insured. Any thoughts?
