POSTED ON BY

Deal Summary: 15-month CD Special, 5.50% APY, $100 min/$250k max deposit, new money.

Availability: Maryland counties of Baltimore, Cecil, and Harford, and the City of Baltimore.

The “Jump Into Summer” 15-month CD Special (4.50% APY) offered by APG Federal Credit Union (APGFCU) has morphed into the “Fall Into Savings” 15-month CD, earning an improved 5.50% APY. The opening deposit requires only $100 and is capped at $250k. New money is required to earn the stated APY and is defined simply as “funds not currently on deposit on APGFCU."

The 15-month CD Special is also available as an IRA CD Special (Traditional, Roth, SEP), earning the same APY with the same deposit requirements.

According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty for the 15-month CD Special is “approximately 90 days of dividends.” Partial withdrawals are allowed, with the EWP applying to the amount being withdrawn. The principal will be reduced if a withdrawal is made within 89 days of account opening.

Availability

Headquartered in Edgewood, Maryland, APG Federal Credit Union’s field of membership (FOM) is community-based, with individuals who live, work, worship, attend school, or volunteer in the Maryland counties of Baltimore, Cecil, or Harford, or the City of Baltimore eligible for membership.

Formerly known as the Aberdeen Proving Ground Federal Credit Union, APG Federal Credit Union was established in 1938 by a small group of Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) employees. (APG is the U.S. Army's oldest active proving ground, established in October 1917, six months after the U.S. entered World War I.) The Credit Union’s first "home" was a single cash drawer in a small APG office. Through a charter change more than 25 years ago, the FOM expanded to include two Maryland counties, with Baltimore County and the City of Baltimore added to the FOM about a year ago. Currently the fifth largest credit union in Maryland, APGFCU has more than 157,000 members and assets in excess of $2.1 billion.

How the 15-month CD Special Compares

When compared to similar length-of-term CDs tracked by DepositAccounts.com that are available within the FOM and have minimum deposit requirements of $10k or less, one bank and one credit union have higher rates than currently offered on the APGFCU 15-month CD Special. The following tables compare the 15-month CD Special to the two highest-rate CDs from other credit unions and the two highest-rate CDs from banks.

The above information and rates are accurate as of 8/22/2023.
