I called the bank this morning, and I was told that they can open accounts by mail for people in any state. The application is available online from the bank's application page. You'll need to send two forms of ID. Please contact the bank for full details. According to the CSR, the CD rate doesn't lock until they receive the check. You can include a note to have them call you if rates drop. At maturity of the CD, wire transfer is an option to receive the funds ($20 fee).

The bank has offices in Dallas, Texas.

Equity Bank's ratings for safety and soundness are a little weak: 2 stars (problematic) at BauerFinancial and 1 star (lowest) at Bankrate.com. Both ratings are based on 3/31/09 financial data. The bank has been a FDIC member since 1981 (FDIC Certificate # 23498)
