University of Iowa CCU 26-Month CD Special Earns 2.00% APY

POSTED ON BY

Deal Summary: 26-month CD Special (2.00% APY), 16-month CD Special (1.60% APY), $1k minimum deposit

Availability: University of Iowa students, staff and alumni; residents of 82 Iowa counties and four Illinois counties.

At the beginning of the month, I wasn't surprised to see new CD Specials from ever-prolific University of Iowa Community Credit Union (UICCU). In the past, UICCU’s structured its CD Specials with tiered APYs (usually in increments of 10 basis points), based on deposit levels of $1k+, $100k+, and $250k+. So I was a bit surprised when I saw the latest UICCU CD Specials are 16-month (1.50% APY) and 26-month (2.00% APY), with both requiring a $1k minimum deposit. No tiered APYs, no different deposit levels.

The minimum deposit for either of the CD Specials is $1k, with no stated balance cap. The CD Specials are also available as IRAs (Traditional, Roth, CESA, and SEP), earning the same non-tiered APYs and having the same funding requirement.

Several months ago in a Live Chat, a very helpful CSR explained the details of the previously vague 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.
