3.00% 19-Month & 2.75% 9-Month Add-On CDs at Civic Bank & Trust In Tennessee


Civic Bank & Trust is offering two competitive CD rates: a 3.00% APY 19-month CD and a 2.75% APY 9-month CD. The 19-month CD has a $10K minimum and the 9-month CD has a $5K minimum deposit. There's also a 33-month variable CD with a 3.35% APY. These rates are listed at the bank's rate table as of 4/12/09.

All of the bank's CDs have an add-on option. At the top of the rate table, it describes this add-in option: "Add to your CD anytime in multiples of $1,000 and keep the same rate and the same term." I contacted the bank Friday via the online chat, and according to the CSR, there are no limits to the additional deposits.

A branch visit is required to open an account. However, I was told that they accept customers from any area (be sure to confirm before planning a trip). It's a small bank with one office located in Nashville, TN.

Civic Bank & Trust has fair ratings for safety and soundness: 3 stars (adequate) at BauerFinancial (based on 12/31/08 data) and 3 stars (performing) at (based on 9/30/08 data). The bank has been FDIC insured since 2005 (FDIC Certificate # 58040).
