Massachusetts-based Taunton Federal Credit Union (TFCU) recently added two 9-month CD Specials. With a 25 bps difference between the two APYs, the 9-month eCertificate Special (2.40% APY) is clearly the more competitive CD. The minimum opening deposit is $250, with no stated balance cap.

Qualify for the 2.40% APY “requires active enrollment in eStatements, eNotices, and Online Banking.” TFCU is making a concerted effort to become more eco-conscious and is urging its members to “go green” with paperless statements and notifications.

Both 9-month Specials are offered as IRAs (Traditional, Roth, CESA), earning the same APYs with the same requirements.

There are no partial withdrawals allowed on the eCertificate Special, only early closures. As stated in the Certificate Rates page, the Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follows:

The early withdrawal penalty for a 9 month eCertificate is 3 months of
dividends regardless of when, prior to maturity, you redeem the certificate.

There is a ten day grace period before the 9-month eCertificate Special automatically renews as a regular 9-month Certificate at the current rate.

On a cold November day in 1947, Mr. Gerard Bonenfant established the Taunton Municipal Credit Union in the basement of Taunton City Hall. Each week, Mr. Bonenfant would collect as little as 25¢ from City Hall workers, recording the deposits in a hand-written ledger book. Within a year, Taunton’s police and fire departments were included in the FOM, and soon thereafter, loans up to $100 were granted to the Credit Union’s members. In 1950, several other Taunton City departments, including the Taunton Municipal Lighting Plant, were added to the FOM. More than 70 years later, Taunton Federal Credit Union serves over 18,300 members, throughout Bristol County and nearby Rhode Island.

How the eCertificate Special Compares

When compared to 244 similar length-of-term CDs tracked by DepositAccounts.com that require a similar minimum deposit and are available within the FOM, Taunton Federal Credit Union’s 9-month eCertificate Special APY currently ranks second.

The above rates are accurate as of 9/4/2019.
