Review of First Internet Bank Nationally Available CDs
Availability: Nationwide (internet bank)

While First Internet Bank (First IB) offered consistently good (and occasionally great) CD rates starting in 2016, those rates began a steady decline in early 2019. This past April, First IB did across-the-board CD rate increases (in the neighborhood of 20-25 bps), but those gains were short-lived. A series of five decreases began in early June, with rates finally stabilizing in early October. Although none of First IB CDs currently have outstanding rates, the longer-term CDs continue to be featured in DA’s bi-weekly CD...
