University of Iowa Community Credit Union has changed its CD and IRA CD special. Its 16-month CD special has changed to a 4-year CD special. Like the old one, this new special is very competitive with a 3.15% APY for a 4-year term. Minimum deposit is $1,000. The yield goes up to 3.30% APY for a $100,000 minimum deposit. These rates are listed at the credit union's rates page as of 5/5/2011.
The credit union continues to offer one of the highest rates in the nation on its reward checking account. As I reported in March, it did the very rare thing and raised the reward checking yield from 4.00% to 4.25% APY for balances up to $25K.
In addition to University of Iowa students, membership is open to those who live or work in any of more than a dozen counties in Eastern Iowa. Please refer to the credit union's About Us page for more details.
