Home Loan Investment Bank (HLIB) ended last week by raising the rate on its 5-year CD (2.50% APY). The minimum opening deposit is $1k, with no stated balance cap.
|2.10%||$1k||-||Home Loan Investment Bank, F.S.B.||5 Year IRA (Traditional, Roth, SEP)|
Added to the product line in November 2010, the 5-year CD is experiencing its highest rate in nearly six years.
The 5-year CD is also offered as an IRA (Traditional, Roth, SEP), earning the same APY with the same funding requirements.
According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty (EWP) is six months interest. As I’ve mentioned in recent blog posts, a mild EWP on a long-term CD can be advantageous in a climate of rising rates on shorter term investments. DA’s EWP Calculator shows the effective yields if the 5-year CD is closed before maturity.
- 1.27% APY – closed at 1 year

- 1.90% APY – closed at 2 years
- 2.11% APY – closed at 3 years
- 2.21% APY – closed at 4 years

Home Loan & Investment Association was established in 1959 operating under a Rhode Island state charter. Fifteen years later, John M. Murphy (Founder and Chairman) purchased the bank charter and began to build the bank, “reactivating the charter for mortgage lending purposes.” In 1995, the charter was converted to a federal charter and the Band rebranded as Home Loan Investment Bank, FSB. HLIB is currently the seventh largest bank in Rhode Island with assets in excess of $265 million and successful residential mortgage and automobile financing divisions.
