GPO Federal Credit Union (GPO) is currently offering 2.30% APY on its 12-month Share Certificate. While not as “wow-worthy” as the 3.00% APY offered last fall on its 7-month and 14-month Share Certificate Specials, the 2.30% APY is 5 bps higher than the APY currently offered on the top nationally available 1-year CD. The 12-month Share Certificate requires a $1k minimum opening deposit, with no stated balance cap.

GPO’s story began in 1931 when Utica postal employees realized there were few banking options available to them.
The Great Depression was paralyzing the country. Banks weren’t always the safest option. So, a group of forward-thinking postal employees got together and started the Utica, NY Postal Credit Union.
While the original FOM included only postal workers based in Utica’s Federal Building, it was constantly changing as more companies began to offer GPO membership to their employees. The Credit Union was re-branded as GPO (Government, Postal, and Occupational) in 1984 to better represent the changing FOM. GOP is currently New York’s 41st largest credit union, with more than 32,200 members and assets in excess of $294 million.
