Triumph Savings Banks Raises Rates On 12- And 18-Month CDs


Availability: Nationwide

Normally, the rate changes and new offerings I write about have happened in the recent past; this time, the scenario is a bit different. On Saturday, Triumph Savings Bank, SSB (Triumph) announced rate increases on six CDs that take effect on Monday.

Of all the soon-to-be increased rates, the 12-month CD (1.25% APY) and 18-month CD (1.25% APY) are the most competitive.

A minimum deposit of $1K opens either CD and there is no maximum balance cap. Both CDs are also offered as IRAs (Traditional and Roth) at the same rates and with the same funding requirements.

As stated on Triumph’s Truth In Savings Disclosure, the Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follow:

If your account has an original maturity of one year to eighteen months: The penalty will equal three months interest on the amount withdrawn subject to penalty.


Headquartered in Dallas, Triumph Savings Banks offers its services and product line to all U.S. Citizens and Resident Aliens, 18 years or older.

Opening a CD (or any other account) can be done online, by email, fax, or snail-mail. The Customer Account Application is available for download.

According a very helpful CSR, any combination of online, email, fax and mail services can be used to open and fund the CDs, with initial funding via either ACH or check. The CSR also stated that Triumph Savings Bank believes in being flexible in accommodating customers, both new and existing.
