The 16-month CD Special is also available as an IRA (Traditional, Roth, CESA, and SEP), earning the same tiered APYs and having the same funding requirements.

In a Live Chat, a CSR explained the Early Withdrawal Penalty.

Whatever amount you request as the early withdrawal amount, whether it is part of the balance or the entire balance, we calculate interest that would have accrued for 12 months on the amount requested and that is the penalty.

If there are fewer than 12 months remaining, it would be the interest that would have accrued for the remaining number of months on the requested amount you are withdrawing.

R2 Checking

UICCU has a new rewards checking account, R2 Checking, which earns 2.50% APY on qualifying balances to $20k. More on the R2 Checking account in a separate blog post.
