First Florida Credit Union has some decent financial ratings for soundness: 5 stars (superior) at BauerFinancial and 3 stars (performing) at Both ratings are based on 9/30/08 data. The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 61170).

Other High Certificate of Deposit Rates

A 3.75% APY for terms under one year may appear low, but I'm afraid it's quite competitive in this rate environment that we're in. The best 6-month CD rate from a bank is 3.45% APY at Earthstar Bank. There is one federally insured credit union that is offering a 4% APY for a special 7-month certificate. For more info on these and other nationwide CD rates, please refer to my weekly rate summary.
