5.83% 7-Month CD at a Washington DC CU (Interior FCU)

POSTED ON BY

Interior FCU has updated its certificate special since my last post. Instead of a 14 month term, it's now a 7 month term. The CD rate remains at 5.83% APY with the same $1K minimum deposit. The standard rates remain very competitive ranging from a 5.27% APY 6-month CD to a 5.72% APY 48-month CD. These are available as a regular CD, a Roth or Traditional IRA CD or a Coverdell CD. You can apply for the regular CD's online.

The field of membership includes all employees and volunteers of the US Department of the Interior which includes the National Park Service and several other bureaus. There are several other select employer groups. See site for details. Note, anyone can volunteer in National Parks around the country. Although this can't be done in time for this promo, it might be useful for future promos.

Branches are located in Washington DC and in Reston, Virginia. Membership can be done by mail and accounts can be opened online. Also, they participate in the National CO-OP Network. So branch visits may never be necessary.

The credit union is NCUA insured. It has $83 million in assets and 9,881 members.

Thanks to the reader who mentioned this credit union in the finding deals post.

For those who would like to volunteer, many historical sites, including homes fall under the National Park Service. These sites always need docents to lead short tours. This is a simple way to meet people and learn more about your local history (and qualify for CU membership).

Dana, that's a good point about historical sites. Hope this will encourage more people to volunteer.
