For a limited time, West Community Credit Union (West Community) is offering two CD Specials: 14-month No-Penalty CD (2.25% APY) and 15-month CD (2.75% APY). Both CD Specials can be opened with a minimum $500 deposit and “require 100% of funds as new funds not currently on deposit with West Community Credit Union.”
The No-Penalty CD features unlimited penalty-free withdrawals, as long as a minimum $500 balance is maintained. Interested is compounded and credited on a quarterly basis. Any funds withdrawn will not earn the interest for the current quarter.
As stated in the Truth-in-Savings disclosure, the Early Withdrawal Penalty for the 15-month CD reads as follows:
When the term is greater than one year, the penalty is 180 days of interest.
Excess Share Insurance
Additional coverage up to $250k is provided by the Excess Share Insurance Corporation, a subsidiary of American Share Insurance, the nation's largest private deposit insurer.
All individual share, share draft and share certificates of deposit accounts held by the same member are added together and insured up to the $250,000 by the NCUA and an additional $250,000 by ESI, for a total of $500,000.
