Less than 5 months ago, I wrote about four Special CDs with competitive rates at Florida Credit Union (FCU). Those four Special CDs are still available, but FCU has raised the rate on a fifth product: the 25-month Special CD (1.51% APY). This highly attractive 25-month Special CD is also available as an IRA, and both CD and IRA require a $10K minimum deposit to open. There is a substantial penalty of 360 days interest for early withdrawal.
It is important to note that this 25-month Special CD is good only through August 16, 2014.
Florida Credit Union is headquartered in Gainesville and is the 20th largest credit union in the state of Florida. Membership applications can be made by calling or visiting any of the FCU's 10 branches (located in the cities of DeLand, Gainesville, Lake City, Ocala and Starke), or online. Please refer to FCU's "About Us" page for more details.
Membership in Florida Credit Union is available to anyone who lives or works in the following 26 counties:
- St Johns
