Franklin Savings Bank (FSB) has added a 42-month CD Special with two very competitive rates: 3.00% APY with a $2k minimum deposit, and 3.10% APY with a minimum of $25k of new money. Just to make sure there’s no confusion, the 3.00% APY does not requires new money.
In a Live Chat, CSR stated that the Early Withdrawal Penalty is “18 months loss of simple interest or $25.00, whichever is greater.”
Headquartered in Franklin, New Hampshire, Franklin Savings Bank’s market area is primarily Central New Hampshire.
While a portion of the product line (checking, savings, and money market accounts) can be opened online by any resident of New Hampshire, opening a CD requires an in-person visit to any of seven full-service New Hampshire branches located in Boscawen, Bristol, Franklin (2), Gilford, Merrimack, and Tilton.
