INOVA Federal Credit Union (INOVA) is the latest financial institution to jump on the 3 For 5 Club bandwagon, with a 75 bps rate hike on its 5-year Certificate (3.00% APY). (With membership at nearly 100 banks and credit unions, the 3 For 5 Club has lost some of its cachet.) The minimum opening deposit is only $200 and there is no stated balance cap.
|3.00%||$200||-||INOVA Federal Credit Union||5 Year IRA (Traditional, Roth, CESA)|
|3.00%||$200||-||INOVA Federal Credit Union||5 Year CD|
The 5-year Certificate is also available as an IRA (Traditional, Roth, CESA), earning the same 3.00% APY and with the same funding requirements.
The Early Withdrawal Penalty is now listed on the Share Certificate page and reads as follows:
The penalty schedule is as follows: Terms of longer than 1 year 180 days’ dividends
The penalty imposed will equal the lesser of all dividends earned or terms
above. However, the penalty will not be less than 7 days’ dividends.
Thanks to DA reader, SYC, for the Forum post about INOVA’s 5-year Certificate rate hike.
In February, INOVA had “limited-time special rates” on its 14-month Certificate (2.30% APY) and 30-month Certificate (2.55% APY). Those rates are still in effect and you can read more about them in my February 10 blog post.
