The credit union has a history of competitive CD specials. My last report was on August when the 7-month CD rate was 2.50%. Last year the 7-month CD rate was 5% (the good old days).
Membership is open to those who live, work or worship in any of the following Kentucky counties: Boyle, Breckinridge, Grayson, Hart, Larue, Meade, Nelson and Taylor.

There's a $10 membership fee, and a minimum $5 deposit into a share savings account is required. Please refer to the credit union's membership eligibility page for the full details.
