IntegrUS Credit Union (IntegrUS) is featuring two Special Share Certificates (15-month and 27-month) with tiered APYs.
Both Special Share Certificates are also available as IRAs (Traditional, Roth, CESA), earning the same tiered APYs and the same funding requirements.
The 27-month Special Share Certificate was added to the product line about two months ago at the current APY. The 15-month Special Share Certificate, on the other hand, has been part of the product line since May 2011 and has experience more than 20 rate changes, including a 55 basis point hike this week. The current APY is the highest for the 15-month Special Share Certificate in more than five years.
According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty for either Special Share Certificate is 6 months interest.
