Oklahoma-based Security Bank is offering an 18-month Spring CD Special, earning 3.02% APY. This limited-time special can be opened with a $2k minimum deposit and there is no stated balance cap. While no end-date for the Spring CD Special is mentioned, CSR suggested it probably won’t last much longer than the end of spring.
While Security Bank’s website is light on documentation, CSR was easily able to provide the following facts:
- The Early Withdrawal Penalty is nine months interest on the amount withdrawn.
- Unlimited beneficiaries can be named, but Social Security numbers are required.
- Funding can be by ACH, wire, or check.
- Maturing funds will be distributed by cashier’s check, or deposited into an existing Security Bank checking or savings account.

Out-of-area individuals can open the Spring CD Special by mail/email. CSR stated the first step would be to contact the Bank (918.664.6100) and request an application be sent by either e-mail or snail-mail. The completed application can be returned by either e-mail or snail-mail. Funding can be by check, wire, or ACH.
