Higher Long-Term CD and IRA CD Rates at CIT Bank

POSTED ON BY

CIT Bank

CIT Bank has recently increased the rates of its 5-year and 4-year Jumbo CD and IRA CD rates. It’s another example of banks increasing their long-term CD rates. It’s a trend that started a couple of months ago after Treasury yields had big gains. CIT Bank’s Jumbo 5-year CD APY increased from 1.75% to 1.85%, and the Jumbo 4-year CD APY increased from 1.55% to 1.60%. Minimum deposit is $100,000. These rates are accurate as of 8/30/2013.

According to CIT Bank’s FAQs, the early withdrawal penalty is equal to “12 months’ interest for the amount withdrawn if your account has an original maturity of more than three years.”

The unique feature about CIT Bank is its Achiever CDs which allow a one-time add-on deposit and a one-time bump-up in the rate during the term of the CD. These are available for both 1-year and 2-year terms, and both are now available in an IRA. There’s a minimum initial deposit of $25,000.
