The field of membership includes members of CityDance Ensemble. CityDance has open membership to anyone that pays membership dues of $20.00. This membership can be done at the same time that you apply for credit union membership. They have an online membership application in which you can join CityDance for $20, join the credit union for a $5 inital deposit to the Primary Share account, and open the CD.
The FOM also includes those who live, work or worship in Washington DC plus other group affiliations.
In the online application, I noticed that it includes an option for the 16-month CD with the $25K minimum deposit. However, I've read that the credit union limits an electronic transfer to $10K from a newly linked funding account. I called their toll-free number, but was unable to get help since they were already closed for the Veteran's Day holiday.
AFCU offered several 6-percent-plus CDs in late spring and early summer (see post). Even after these 6% CD specials, they've maintained competitive yields on their standard CD's. For the last several months, they've maintained a 5.65% APY for the 60-month CD. So with competitive rates and online funding capabilities, this might be a good credit union to join for the long term.
Branches are located in Washington DC, Riverdale, Maryland, and Alexandria, Virginia. They also are part of National Shared Branching network in which you can use local credit unions to access your account and conduct many transactions.
AFCU is NCUA insured. It has $192 million in assets and almost 24,000 members.
Credit for this find goes to the FW CD thread. There was also a useful FW thread on AFCU when it first started offering 6% CDs. The link to that thread is here.
