The 15-month Certificates were added to the product line about three months ago, with only 5 bps separating the APYs (1.55% and 1.50%). Last week’s rate increase clearly made the Jumbo Certificate the more competitive product.

Both Certificates are available as IRAs (Traditional, Roth, CESA), earning the same APYs with the same funding requirements.

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

Availability

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

The current FOM is detailed in a 15-page document, but the “membership generally includes those who live, work, worship, or attend school within the geographies of each branches as described in our bylaws.” Those branches are located in the Dallas-Fort Worth area (10), Las Vegas (4), northern Detroit suburbs (3), Northern Virginia (2), and Memphis (1).

Employees of several SEGs, including EDS and 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 can be done online, or by visiting any of the above mentioned branches.
