2.50% 25-Month CD Continues at First Financial Bank in OH, IN & Other States - Local Only


First Financial Bank continues to offer a special 25-month CD with a 2.50% APY. Minimum deposit is $10,000, and new money is required. This special is not listed at the bank's website. I just called the bank to confirm the rate. According to the CSR, this special is available at all branches. The CSR didn't know how much longer it would last, but they usually update rates on Tuesdays.

A branch visit is required to open an account. Most of the branches are located in Ohio and Indiana. The FDIC also shows branches in several other states including California and Arizona. These are the branches that First Financial acquired when Irwin Union Bank failed in September.

First Financial Bank's ratings for safety and soundness are a little above average: 4 stars (excellent) at BauerFinancial (based on 9/30/09 data) and 3 stars (performing) at (based on 6/30/09 data). The bank has been a FDIC member since 1934 (FDIC Certificate # 6600).

If you click on the FDIC link at the bottom of the post, it'll take you to the FDIC page. At this page, click on "Current List of Offices". The FDIC lists two in CA: one in Costa Mesa and one in Sacramento. I think these are the old Irwin Union branches.
