People's Alliance Federal Credit Union continues to offer competitive CD rates. The rates have gone down since my last post, but they remain competitive.

The best CD rates are currently 2.24% APY for 5 years, 2.00% APY for 4 years, 1.68% APY for 3 years and 1.31% APY for 2 years. Minimum deposit is $500.

Interesting post, but I don't understand why those 5-yr. rates are so worthy of mention.  Elsewhere in NY, many CU's have the same or better.  Examples: Bethpage CU, Nassau Educators CU, Sperry CU, Teachers FCU all have 5-yr. CD rates which are about the same (or higher, in the 2.30% range) than this one.  Why do you consider this one so great?

2.25% for 5 yrs is also fairly common around here with most CU's at that lvl.or slightly above.  Have also seen some 2.5%'s but less common.

Unfortuantely, there aren't as many competitive CD rates in South Florida.

Oh, so you are featuring this CU because they are also in Fla.?  If so then it makes sense.  Because in NY or other areas, that 2.24% 5 yr. CD rate doens't seem that amazing.
