InTouch Credit Union Adds 8-Month Certificate Special

POSTED ON BY

Deal Summary: 8-month Certificate Special, 2.20% APY, $1k minimum/$95k maximum deposit. 21-month Jumbo Certificate Special, 2.65% APY, $95k minimum deposit.

Availability: Residents of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, greater Las Vegas, northern Detroit suburbs, and northern Virginia; several SEGs, including EDS and Dr. Pepper Snapple. Note: the community charter does not apply in Memphis (TN), which is strictly SEG-based.

Since the beginning of the year, Texas-based InTouch Credit Union (ITCU) has offered a variety of competitive Certificate Specials. The newest is an 8-month Certificate Special, earning 2.20% APY. The minimum deposit is $1k, with a balance cap of $95k. There’s also a limit of one 8-month Certificate Special per member.

DA readers may recall my March blog post about ITCU’s 21-month Jumbo Certificate Special, which had an initial 2.50% APY for deposits of $95k+. The rate was raised on Monday to 2.65% APY. The 21-month is also available as a regular Certificate ($1k+), earning 2.40% APY.

The Certificate Specials are available as IRAs (Traditional, Roth, CESA), earning the same APYs with the same funding requirements.

According CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty is a mild three months of interest.

Availability

Headquartered in Plano, Texas, InTouch Credit Union’s field of membership (FOM) may seem somewhat disjointed at first glance, but its origins lay with the original Electronic Data Systems (EDS) Employees Federal Credit Union.

The Membership Eligibility, page states that “InTouch Credit Union membership generally includes those who live, work, worship or attend school within the geographies of each of our branches, but there are other eligibility criteria, too.” Those branches are located in the Dallas-Fort Worth area (10), Las Vegas (4), northern Detroit suburbs (3), and Northern Virginia (2).

The Membership Eligibility page breaks down the geographic areas as follows:

    Michigan – Oakland County

    Nevada – Cities of Enterprise, Henderson, Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Paradise, Spring Valley, Summerlin South, Sunrise Manor, Whitney, and Winchester.

    Texas – Collin, Dallas, and Denton Counties

    Virginia – Fairfax and Loudon Counties

In 2014, ITCU merged with Tennessee-based Hospitality Federal Credit Union (HFCU), establishing a presence in Memphis. HFCU’s FOM was SEG-based, primarily companies in the hospitality industry. Due to state regulations, a change to a community FOM was not permitted. Bottom line, the “within the geographies of each branch” membership eligibility does not apply in the Memphis area.

Employees of several SEGs, including EDS and the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, are also eligible to join.

Immediate family members of current ITCU members are welcome to apply.

Joining ITCU and/or opening a Certificate Special can be done online, or by visiting any of the above mentioned branches.
