High Yield Long-Term CD Options - USA Federal Credit Union

POSTED ON BY

USA Federal Credit Union
For those looking for high yield long-term CDs, it's getting harder. Pentagon Federal Credit Union just ended its 5.50% APY certificates today. The best rates for all of their long-term CDs is now 5.12% APY. Agriculture FCU recently cut back on their rates, but their 60-month CD is still competitive at 5.50% APY.

Another credit union with easy membership with competitive long term CD rates is USA Federal Credit Union. The best rate is 5.64% APY for a 60-month term and a minimum $100K deposit. The APY for a $1K minimum is 5.38% APY. Rates go down slightly for shorter terms. Similar rates are available for Individual Retirement Accounts. The early withdrawal penalty for CDs with terms over one year is 180 days of interest (see account disclosure). Last year the credit union had a really good 6.01% 48-month CD special (see post).

The field of membership allows eligibility for those who are members of the Prime Meridian Association. People can join this association with a $10 membership fee. An application can be requested from the credit union and can be included with the credit union application. Membership into the credit union requires a $5 membership fee and a minimum opening savings deposit of $5.

Branches are located in San Diego and Riverside County, California and in Las Vegas, Nevada. It also has overseas branches in Japan and Korea. The credit union is part of CU Service Centers network. Cash and check deposits can be made into your savings or checking accounts through these shared branches. CDs can then be opened by phone and funded by transfering the money from the checking or savings into the CD.

The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Chareter # 9005). It has $695.6 million in assets and 58,117 members.

Wondering if Agriculture will have a high paying 6% type CD at the end of May early June as they did last year? Do they tend to do these as anniversary type things like Pentagon does? Thanks to those who know.

That's a good question. In addition to the late-spring CD promos, they also came out with some in the late fall. Hopefully, this trend of CD promos will continue.

Seems like many of these credit unions make these kind of decisions during the board's monthly meetings. Then the CSR's sometimes will hear the news before the promo takes effect.

In regards to USA FCU, I'm afraid the CD rates just went down by about 0.10%.
