As CD rates have fallen in the past year, most financial institutions are offering their best rates on shorter-term certificates. Of all the CDs offered by OMNI Community Credit Union (OMNI), the 5-year Jumbo CD (1.40% APY) currently has the most competitive rate. OMNI Jumbo CDs require a minimum $100k opening deposit, with no stated balance cap. Non-jumbo CDs are offered in all term lengths, earning rates a uniform 25 bps lower and requiring a $1k opening deposit.
The Jumbo CD is also available as an Jumbo IRA CD (Traditional, Roth, CESA), earning the same APY with the same deposit requirements.
As stated in the Truth-in-Savings (TIS) disclosure, the Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follows:
Penalty for a 13 month or longer Certificate of Deposit is equal to 180 days of dividends.
Dividends are compounded monthly and credited monthly and can be credited to an OMNI Primary Savings account or checking account.
We reserve the right to decline a Certificate renewal.
If a credit union has a good year, with its reserves and capital in excess of what’s necessary, it will often make a special end-of-year payout (dividend) to its members. OMNI takes that practice one step further:
Thanks to the support of our members, we are able to share our profits by paying our members a rebate at the end of the year. These rebates are based on your total savings and loan balances with us. We're one of the few financial institutions in the country that offer this program!
OMNI even has a Cashback Rebate Calculator. By entering the balances of your deposit accounts and loan balances, you can see what your rebate will be. A $100k balance in a CD translates to a year-end $350 Cashback Rebate.

An initial deposit of $5 is all you need to get your Primary Share account opened and membership established.
Appointments for opening new accounts, adding accounts to an existing membership, loans, and mortgages can be scheduled online for in-person meetings and several can be scheduled for phone as well.
According to CSR, CDs can be opened in-branch or over the phone, but not online. No matter how you choose to open a CD, the funds for the CD opening deposit must already be in an OMNI account. Funds can be deposited into an OMNI savings account through an ACH or wire transfer; unfortunately, OMNI does not participate in the CO-OP Shared Branch network.
