Prospect Federal Savings Bank is listing several competitive CD rates. The most competitive CDs have terms from 15 to 60 months. Rates range from 3.15% APY for 15 months to 4.00% APY for 60 months.

Jumbo CDs with a $100K minimum are available for some of the terms with slightly higher yields. CDs are also available as IRAs. These rates are listed in the bank's rate table as of 1/23/2009. The table has an effective date of 1/20/09, and are subject to change at any time.
