Once again, University of Iowa Community Credit Union’s (UICCU) has proven to be one of the most prolific credit unions in offering competitive CDs. The latest contributions are a 7-month CD Special and 17-month CD Special. Like all of UICCU’s CD Specials, there are three rate tiers based on deposit balances:

    7-month CD Special, 1.00% APY ($1k+), 1.10% APY ($100k+), and 1.20% APY ($250k+).

    17-month CD Special, 1.50% APY ($1k+), 1.60% APY ($100k+), and 1.70% APY ($250k+).

The minimum deposit for either of the CD Specials is $1k and there is no balance cap. Both CD Specials are also available as IRAs (Traditional, Roth, CESA, and SEP) at the same tiered interest rates, with the same funding requirements.

Getting clarification on UICCU’s Early Withdrawal Penalty (EWP) has always been frustrating: it’s not listed on their website, and the response was always, “it’s a formula.” In a Live Chat last month, a very helpful CSR explained the details of the previously vague EWP.

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.
