EagleBank (DC Metro Area) Boosts 9-Month CD To Competitive Level

POSTED ON BY

Deal Summary: 9-11 month CD, 1.32% APY, $1k minimum deposit, in-branch opening only.

Availability: Washington, D.C. metropolitan area

Maryland-based EagleBank recently raised the rate of its 9-11 month CD to 1.32% APY. The 9-11 month CD allows the customer to choose the maturity from nine to eleven months. The minimum opening deposit is $1k, with no stated balance cap.

Since the beginning of the year, 9-11 month CD added a total 122 bps in three rate increases. The current 1.32% APY is the highest rate the 9-11 month CD has offered in more than two years.

EagleBank is also offering competitive rates on shorter-term CDs. The 6-8 month CD earns 1.25% APY, and the 3-5 month CD earns 0.86% APY.

According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty for the 9-11 month CD is 90 days of interest on the amount being withdrawn. Partial withdrawals and/or early closures are permitted.

CSR also stated that unlimited beneficiaries (equal shares) can be named, with Social Security numbers required. There is a 10 day grace period before a CD automatically renews. EagleBank’s standard procedure to distribute maturing funds is issuing a check to the address on file. When I asked if maturing funds could be transferred to an EagleBank checking or savings account, I was told “only if the checking/savings account is NOT opened solely for depositing maturing funds.”

9-Month Risk-Free CD

The 9-month Risk-Free CD ($1k minimum deposit) is actually a no-penalty CD that currently earns 0.86% APY.

As stated in the fine print on the CD Rates page,

With a 9-Month, Risk-Free CD after the first six days, we allow one penalty-free withdrawal during the term. Any withdrawal subsequent to the one penalty-free withdrawal will incur a penalty equal to three months’ interest.

Availability
