Metropolitan Service FCU In Philadelphia PA has very high cd rates.

Small credit union with very high cd rates.  Field of membership is not listed on the web site so not sure who or what criteria is used to determine eligibility.  NCUA site indicates field of membership is primarily military.  See link provided.   I am not member of Metropolitan, but I wish I was.  Deposit rates are towards to the bottom of the screen.
