In July, Veridian’s CD Specials consisted of a 7-month Jumbo/non-Jumbo CD (no longer available) and a 9-month Jumbo CD and 9-month non-Jumbo CD Special, which continue to earn 0.85%/0.75% APY, respectively.

According to CSR, funds to open a CD must be on deposit in a Veridian savings account before the CD can be opened. Funds can be transferred into a savings account by ACH or wire; debit or credit card funding is possible, but is limited to $500. Unfortunately, Veridian does not participate in the CO-OP Shared Branch network.

Maturing funds can be distributed through a cashier’s check or transferred into a Veridian savings account. There is a 10-day grace period before a CD automatically renews.

Credit Union Overview

Veridian Credit Union has an overall health grade of "A" at DepositAccounts.com, with a Texas Ratio of 2.87% (excellent) based on March 31, 2021 data. In the past year, Veridian has increased its total non-brokered deposits by $923.36 million, an excellent annual growth rate of 25.06%. Please refer to our financial overview of Veridian Credit Union (NCUA Charter # 64418) for more details.

Veridian Credit Union was originally chartered in 1934 as the John Deere Employees Credit Union. As the name suggests, original membership was exclusively for John Deere employees. The FOM remained unchanged until 1986, when membership was extended to individuals living and/or working in nearby Cedar Falls. This prompted a small name change: John Deere Community Credit Union.

John Deere Community Credit Union always operated independently of Deere & Company, but in 2004, Deere requested that the use of "John Deere" be discontinued to avoid trademark confusion. As a result, the name was changed in 2006, with the new name, "Veridian," derived from the Latin words for truth (veritas) and growing (verdant). Veridian Credit Union is currently Iowa’s second largest credit union and the 51st largest credit union in the country, with more than 256,000 members and assets in excess of $5.4 billion.
