Earlier this month, State Bank introduced two new CDs: 48-month (3.00% APY) and 18-month (2.25% APY). Either CD can be opened with a $1k minimum deposit, with no stated balance cap. No matter the size of the opening deposit, 50% of the funds must be money that is new to State Bank.
According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty (EWP) is structured a bit differently, with the determining factor being when funds are withdrawn. If more than 12 months remain until the CD matures, the EWP is six months of interest; if less than 12 months remain until maturity, the EWP drops to three months of interest.
Headquartered in Defiance, Ohio, State Bank’s market area includes the northwest Ohio counties of Allen, Defiance, Franklin, Fulton, Hancock, Lucas, Montgomery, Paulding, Wood, and Williams, and the Fort Wayne, Indiana area.
