Gesa Credit Union is offering a 5.01% APY certificate for terms of 48 and 60 months. The minimum deposit is $500. This is also available in an IRA.
My last report on this credit union was in May when I reported on its 6.01% reward checking account. The only problem with this account is the low $10K cap.
Membership is open to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in the State of Washington. Also, you can be eligible if a close relative qualifies as a member. Please refer to their Membership page for more details. Membership requires a minimum balance of $5 in the share savings account.
Branches are located in the Washington cities of Richland, Kennewick, Pasco, Walla Walla and Wenatchee. The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 68278). It has $631 million in assets and 74,930 members.
