The Early Withdrawal Penalty cannot be found on UICCU’s website. In various phone conversations and Live Chats it’s been explained in a variety of ways, but the following Live Chat quote is the best explanation I’ve received:

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 [on the term], it would be the interest that would have accrued for the remaining number of months on the requested amount you are withdrawing.

39-month Bump Option CD Special

I wrote about the 39-month Bump Option CD Special about three weeks ago. That CD is still available today earning the same tiered APYs.

Credit Union Overview

University of Iowa Community Credit Union has an overall health grade of "B+" at DepositAccounts.com, with a Texas Ratio of 7.28% (excellent), based on June 30, 2018 data. In the past year, UICCU increased its total non-brokered deposits by $465.78 million, an excellent annual growth rate of 16.23%. Please refer to our financial overview of University of Iowa Community Credit Union (NCUA Charter # 60269) for more details.

Established in 1938 as the State University of Iowa Hospital Employees Credit Union, the original membership included the staff of University Hospital exclusively. In 1966, the FOM was expanded to serve all staff, students, and alumni and the Credit Union was renamed the University of Iowa Credit Union. “Community” was added to the name in 1988 when the charter changed to include Iowa residents who weren’t affiliated with the University of Iowa.

Another name change will occur in less than a year:

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds recently signed the state’s budget bill into law. This bill carries an amendment stating that credit unions "shall not include the name of any public university located in the state in its name.” This requires University of Iowa Community Credit Union (UICCU) to change its name by April 30 of next year. The UICCU Board of Directors met on June 9th and voted unanimously to comply with the law and move forward with the change.
