The minimum opening deposit for the 5-year CD is $1K, with no maximum balance cap. The 5-year CD is also as an IRA (Traditional) at the same APY, with the same funding requirements.

The very helpful CSR stated that the Early Withdrawal Penalty on the 5-year CD is one year’s interest. She also mentioned that rates at FSB customarily change on Wednesday (these were announced yesterday), and she didn’t expect the Anniversary Specials to last long.

The Milestone Money Market Account (MMA) requires a minimum deposit of $75K. According to the fine print on Federal Savings Bank’s promo page,

For existing Federal Savings Bank customers, $25,000 of the total $75,000 minimum balance requirement must consist of new, non-FSB deposits in order to obtain the stated APY.

If the Milestone MMA balance should fall below $75K, the rate will automatically default to 0.10% APY.


Headquartered in Dover, New Hampshire, Federal Savings Bank is a community-based bank, with a market area covering New Hampshire’s Seacoast Region.

Opening either the 125th Anniversary Special 5-year CD or Milestone Money Market Account requires an in-person visit to any of five New Hampshire branches located in Barrington, Dover, Durham, Portsmouth, and Rochester.
