Legacy Community Federal Credit Union (Legacy) is currently offering very competitive rates on its 13-month CD (2.50% APY) and 25-month CD (2.75% APY). Either CD can be opened with a $500 minimum deposit and there is no stated balance cap.
Both CDs are also offered as IRAs (Traditional), earning the same APYs with the same funding requirements.
As stated on the Account Selection page of the online application, the Early Withdrawal Penalty for CD terms of 36-months or less is 90 days of dividends. According to CSR, partial withdrawals are permitted.
Funding can be done by ACH, wire, or check. Maturing funds can be distributed by cashier’s check or transferred into another Legacy account (checking, savings). There is a 7-day grace period before a CD automatically renews. (The 13-month renews as a 12-month CD and the 25-month renews as a 25-month CD.)
Unlimited beneficiaries (with Social Security numbers) can be named and will be assigned equal shares.
Headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, Legacy Community Federal Credit Union’s field of membership (FOM) is residency-based, with individuals who live, work, worship, or attend school in the central Alabama counties of Bibb, Blount, Chilton, Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair, or Walker, eligible to join.

You will be asked to make your initial minimum deposit of $5.00 with a secure debit or credit card transaction, ACH debit, or by mailing a check along with your signed account card. This is not a fee. You must deposit one share in your share (savings) account to establish your membership at the credit union.
Legacy participates in the CO-OP Shared Branch and ATM networks.
CO-OP’s nearly 30,000 ATMs and 5,000+ shared branches means you have more
