5.50% 7-Month CD at a Massachusetts Bank (Ipswich Co-operative)


Ipswich Co-operative Bank is offering a 5.50% APY 7-month certificate of deposit. The minimum deposit is $500.

It's a small two-branch bank located in Ipswich, MA. They're currently undergoing a merger and will become Institution for Savings in July. Ipswich Co-operative Bank is FDIC insured (FDIC Certificate # 26452).

How nice that the current bank has the unlimited SIF insurance coverage and the new bank has the unlimited DIF coverage. Often these special Massachusetts insurance coverages are lost after a merger since the new bank isn't in either category, i. e. being a bank with branches outside of Massachusetts or being a bank within Massachusetts that doesn't qualify for either coverage.

It'll be interesting to see how this changes.

A commenter provided the following info about SIF and DIF in this post:

DIF insurance applies to all MA state-chartered savings banks. Most of which have "Savings Bank" in their names. See DIF webpage which lists all such banks.

SIF insurance applies to all MA co-operative banks. Most of which have "Co-operative Bank" in their names. See SIF webpage.
