NavyArmy Community City Union (NavyArmy) has had a busy week: the announcement of a 10% Bonus Dividend for 2015 being paid (thanks to PearlBrown for letting us know about that good news), and an increase in the rates for its 2-Year Term Share Account (1.75% APY) and 3-Year Term Share Account (2.25% APY).
The minimum deposit to earn the stated APYs is $100K, with no balance cap. Minimum deposits of $1-$99,999K earn APYs 25 basis points lower.

2-Year - The penalty we may impose will equal 180 days interest whether earned or not.
3-Year - The penalty we may impose will equal 365 days interest whether earned or not.
NavyArmy’s Liberty Checking has maintained its 3.51% APY (on qualifying balances up to $25K) for almost four years. This fee-free RCA requires a minimum opening deposit of $20, with only one Liberty Checking account per household.
