In the last few months we’ve seen several banks and credit unions offer higher long-term CD rates. The latest one is PeoplesChoice Credit Union. It just started offering two CD specials: a 10-year CD with a 3.04% APY and a 7-year CD with a 2.43% APY. This 10-year CD rate requires a $500 minimum deposit, but the 7-year CD rate requires a $75,000 minimum. The 7-year CD has a 2.37% APY for $10,000 minimum and a 2.27% APY for a $500 minimum. The 7-year CD rate is listed at the credit union’s rate sheet as of 10/22/2013. The 10-year CD special doesn’t appear to be listed on the credit union’s website. I received a copy of a PDF rate sheet where it’s listed on the top right of the sheet. This PDF rate sheet is available here.
Credit union membership is open to anyone who lives, works or attends school in York and Cumberland County of Maine.
