Expired - Langley Federal Credit Union 14-Month CD Special Is Still Available

POSTED ON BY

Update 1/23/2024: The 14-month CD Special has expired and is no longer available.

Deal Summary: 14-month CD Special, 5.70% APY, $500 minimum deposit, available to new members with new money only.

Availability: Easy membership requirement

I wrote about the 14-month CD Special (5.70% APY) offered by Virginia-based Langley Federal Credit Union (Langley FCU) in late August. As the nationally available 1-year CD APYs have been shifting downward in the past three weeks, the 14-month CD Special has become more competitive.

Langley FCU has been offering CD Specials with competitive APYs for a few years, with each CD Special having slightly different qualifying requirements. The current 14-month CD Special is unique because it can only be opened by new members with new money.

A new member is defined as an individual that does not currently have an account with Langley Federal Credit Union.

New money is defined as funds not currently on deposit with Langley Federal Credit Union.

The phrase “new members with new money” seems obvious at first glance, but it may be worded that way so an existing Langley FCU member can’t fund a CD Special being opened by a new member who might possibly be a relative.

The fine print on the landing page lists the 14-month CD Special details, which include,

  • The minimum balance to open the certificate is $500.
  • Open to new members with new money.
  • No maximum deposit.
  • Includes IRA Certificates.
  • Limited time offer.
  • Not eligible for Active Rewards rate enhancement and cannot be combined with any other promotional offer.

Early Withdrawal Penalty

As stated in the Truth-in-Savings for Certificates, the Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follows:

Terms of 12 months of longer – 180 days’ dividends

The TIS also states,

If the account has not yet earned enough dividends or if the dividends have already been paid, the penalty will be deducted from the principal.

Availability and Account Opening

Headquartered in Newport News, Virginia, Langley Federal Credit Union offers membership to virtually any U.S. citizen or resident alien, 18 years or older, with a valid Social Security number. There are no other requirements to meet to qualify for membership – anyone is welcome to apply.

A savings account is the initial account to establish your membership with Langley. Once you make the initial $5 deposit, you become a member of the credit union, enabling you to take advantage of many other products and services that meet your needs.

Langley FCU participates in the CO-OP Shared Branch network, providing its members with access to more than 5,000 shared branches across the country.

Is there ever really, an EASY ACH pull? There's always some degree of delay.
And at a rate of 5 point whatever,...not chunk change anymore.

For that sum, go find a shared branch.

Anyone care to opine on 5 year CD yields as
Dec ‘23 turns into Jan ‘24 now that the Fed has renounced its “higher for longer” mantra and kissed the behind of markets as it typically does. Will they plummet, - or hold their own in light of no movement down in the Fed Funds rate having yet happened. Januarys typically bring some good CU offers. Is a 5% 5 year even thinkable let alone plausible in the new year? I say yes.

Advancial still has their 5.40% 5-year; if that means anything.
I can't see them dropping that over 50 bps in one fell swoop.

DA reader, Jstran3, announced the good news in a Forum post this week: Langley FCU has a new 17-month Promotional Certificate.
