FNBLI is currently offering special rates on those same term lengths, but this time as CDs. The minimum deposit is $1k of new money, with a balance cap of $1m.

|3.00%||$1k||$1m||The First National Bank of Long Island||10 Year CD|
|2.75%||$1k||$1m||The First National Bank of Long Island||7 Year CD|
|2.40%||$1k||$1m||The First National Bank of Long Island||5 Year CD|
Given the recent rising rate climate, I was surprised to see that the 10-year APY is actually 5 bps lower than was offered seven months ago. The 5-year and 7-year APYs are higher: 15 and 10 bps, respectively.
According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalties are fairly substantial:
18 months interest – 5-year CD
24 months interest – 7-year CD
36 months interest – 10-year CD

The First National Bank of Glen Head was founded in 1927 so Long Island’s North Shore business owners and farmers wouldn’t have to travel to New York City to do their banking. The 60-mile roundtrip to NYC could take an entire day, making a simple banking transaction or applying for a loan an ordeal. Local residents raised $50k in capital and the Bank’s doors opened for business on October 1, 1927. The First National Bank of Long Island re-brand occurred in 1978 as the Bank’s footprint expanded. Currently the 26th largest bank headquartered in New York State, FNBLI has assets in excess of $3.7 billion and more than 44,000 customer accounts.
