5.92% 60-Month CD Continues at a South Carolina CU - $50K+ (SAFE FCU)


SAFE Federal Credit Union continues to offer high yield long-term certificates. The 60-month CD has rates of 6.02% APY for a $100K minimum deposit, a 5.92% APY for a $50K minimum and a 5.65% APY for a $1K minimum. IRA CDs have rates about 0.25% higher.

This credit union has had high CD yields through most of last year. My last report on them was in November.

Field of membership includes those who live in the following South Carolina counties: Lee, Clarendon, Sumter, Kershaw, Florence, Richland and Lexington. There's also over 500 Select Employer Groups. Contact the credit union for details about other ways to qualify.

The credit union has branches in the South Carolina cities of Sumter, Bishopville, Camden, Columbia, Florence and Lexington. It's federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 9988). It has $479.6 million in assets and 99,287 members.

Amboy deal looks interesting. 6.00% is the holy grail today. I sent for the e-mail. Could not understand their offering. Just could not understand. If there is some undesirable aspect to the deal they are attempting to conceal . . . well . . . . they have succeeded.
