POSTED ON BY

Deal Summary: 9-month Term Share CD Special, 2.40% APY, $1k minimum deposit, offer ends September 30, 2019.

Availability: Residents of Franklin, Hampden, Hampshire, Middlesex, Norfolk, and Worcester Counties, Massachusetts.

Now through September 30, 2019, Leominster Credit Union (LCU) is offering a 9-month Term Share CD Special earning 2.40% APY. At the beginning of the month, LCU raised the rate on the 9-month CD Special, while lowering the rates on the 36-, 48-, and 60-month Term Share CDs.

As stated in the Terms and Conditions document, the Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follows:

If your account has an original maturity of one year or less: The penalty we may
impose will equal 90 days dividends on the amount withdrawn subject to penalty.

MSIC now fully insures excess shares and deposits above the federal insurance limit
of $250,000 at ALL of member credit unions. As a result of the new law, MSIC will now
fully insure excess shares and deposits without limits that exceed NCUSIF coverage.
