[Limited Membership] EFCU 30Mo Jumbo (100K) @ 5.48% APY + 1 Time Bump Still Availalbe - 10/3/2023

For those who qualify to join EFCU (only those who live local in Louisana now are able to join) or for those who are already members, EFCU has an attractive CD. Their 30 month "Bump Up" Jumbo CD (100k) has a compounded rate of 5.48% (the listed non-compounded rate of 5.35% = 5.48% when compounded), plus a 1-time Bump Up Option where, if rates go up, you can call them and get a 1-time rate bump during the term. The EWP is good, too (180 days). Seems a good way to lock in a solid rate (5.48%) for 2.5 years, with the ability to raise the rate higher if rates go up. The only downside is that eligibility to join the CU is limited now to those who live local in Louisana. Ken wrote a blog post in early August about this, but I wanted to post that it's still available. According to Ken's post, partial early withdrawals are not allowed.

Maybe this is a sign of what is to come from other banks and credit unions. Go here and click on Rates at top of page to download rate sheet. https://w

Hard (Pull) To Join.

Yet another land mine to explode in your face when seeking just to become a member. Find another place unless strong reasons exist to join here. The deposit rates might be one and I was tempted until asking about credit check against non-borrowing applicants. WHY are CU's so fortified against the remote possibility that a depositor might cause a problem someday? Applicants already face soft pulls.

Did Not Complete The Application

Posted by: |

The account application was asking many questions unrelated to a typical bank account application. I stopped halfway through the application because I did not feel comfortable giving out irrelevant personal information.
