Bank of Little Rock Offers 5-Year CD Earning 3.04% APY


Deal Summary: 5-year CD, 3.04% APY, $500 minimum deposit.

Availability: Arkansas, but only in-branch.

Bank of Little Rock is currently offering 3.04% APY on its 5-year CD. The minimum opening deposit for any Bank of Little Rock CD is $500.

DA began tracking the 5-year CD in November 2018, when it was added to the product line earning 3.00% APY. The rate inched up to 3.04% APY in March, where it has remained.

As stated in the fine print on the Certificate of Deposit landing page, the Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follows:

Early withdrawals may result in six months loss of interest.

CSR confirmed that partial withdrawals are allowed, with the penalty applying to the amount being withdrawn.

Unlimited beneficiaries (equal shares) can be named and Social Security numbers are required for all beneficiaries.

Maturing funds will be distributed by cashier’s check, either in-person at a branch location or mailed to the address on file. There is a 10-day grace period before the CD automatically renews.

Thanks to DA reader, Human, for the comment about this CD.
