As I mentioned yesterday, there has been a small wave of institutions raising their long-term CD rates over the last month after the large rise in Treasury yields. Here’s another one to add to the list. Patriot Federal Credit Union increased its Jumbo 5-year CD yield from 1.80% to 2.00% in August. Minimum deposit is $100,000. The yield for smaller deposits is 1.75%. IRA CDs are also available with the same rates. These rates are listed in the credit union’s deposit rates page as of 8/7/2013. The early withdrawal penalty is 365 days’ dividends. The early withdrawal penalty and other CD details are listed in the credit union’s Truth in Savings for Share Certificates document. The link to this document is located at the top of the credit union’s deposit rates page.
Credit union membership is open to anyone who lives, attends school, works or worships in Franklin or Fulton County, Pennsylvania, Washington County, Maryland, or the Borough of Shippensburg, Pennsylvania. Please refer to the credit union’s Join page for more details.
Patriot Federal Credit Union branches are located in the PA cities of Chambersburg and Waynesboro, and in the MD city of Hagerstown.
The credit union has an overall health score at DepositAccounts.com of 5 stars (out of 5) with a Texas ratio of 4.11% (excellent) based on March 2013 data. Please refer to our financial overview of Patriot Federal Credit Union for more details. The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 16574).
