While New York-based Hanover Bank has substantially raised all its CD rates (adding between 50 and 124 bps), only the 18-month CD (2.15% APY) offers a truly competitive rate. The 18-month CD can be opened with $500 minimum deposit, with no stated balance cap.
The 18-month CD is also available as an IRA CD (Traditional, Roth), earning the same APY with the same funding requirements.
According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty for any of the CDs is 1% of the amount withdrawn, with partial withdrawals allowed.

Hanover Bank opened its doors in 2009, with the Asian-Indian community its targeted demographic. By 2012, the Bank was in the process of re-positioning itself with a new Board of Directors and new management team, headed by Michael P. Puorro. In little more than one year, Mr. Puorro was recognized in the Long Island Business News for "his successful turnaround of a minority-chartered institution previously on the brink of financial disaster." Within the past three years, Hanover Bank acquired two New York City-based banks: Chinatown Federal Savings Bank (2019) and Savoy Bank (2021). Currently the 46th largest bank headquartered in New York state, Hanover Bank has assets in excess of $1.4 billion and nearly 16,000 customer accounts.
