Port Richmond Savings is offering several very competitive long-term CD and IRA CD rates. These include a 3.00% APY 5-year CD, a 2.50% APY 3-year CD and a 2.25% APY 30-month CD. Minimum deposit is $500. These rates are listed in the bank's rates page as of 10/8/2010.
For those in the Philadelphia area, some of these rates compare well to Police and Fire FCU. PFFCU continues to have the best 5-year CD with a 3.25% APY as of 10/8/2010, however, Port Richmond Savings has the best 3-year and 30-month CDs.
The main downside with Port Richmond Savings CDs is a harsh early withdrawal penalty. According to the bank rep, the 5-year CD has a penalty of 24-months of interest. The 3-year CD has a penalty of 18-months of interest. A penalty over 6-months of interest for CD terms of 2 to 5 years is above average.
