Mountain America has just marginally increased its rate on 5 year CDs, from 3.25% APY to 3.35%. It raised its 5 year "Youth" Term Deposit 5 year (for anyone under 28 years of age) to 3.60% APY. Even so, compared with shorter term deals, generally the rate curve has flattened to the point where it makes no sense to go long.

CuriousDave...you posted on the forum an answer on a check for a "child." Why not, as another option...have the mother have the check issued to her as originally stated in the post, and then have her endorse it exactly like the stated payee but with the "payable to...." before the endorsement. The payable :"to" could be herself...but possibly for then subsequent deposit in another bank account in her individual name (only) and after clearing that check she issues one to her adult child...that should do it. The original issuing bank does not want to deal in cash...that is getting to be the norm...asking for cash is a non-starter especially when related to a minor on an account
By her doing the above she is "protected," since there is a paper trail of the funds going to the adult son. Just a thought
