60-Month CD Rates Deal Available To Anyone Who Lives In California

Patriots Federal Credit Union pays 2.25% on 5-year CDs.All Californians can take advantage of Patriots Federal Credit Union’s top 60-month CD rates.

It’s paying 2.25% APY with a $1,000 minimum deposit.

That easily beats the best nationally available rate of 1.95% APY on our CD Rates Leaderboard.

But you have to be a member of Patriots Federal Credit Union to buy these certificates of deposit.

Membership is available to members and employees of organizations associated with the credit union and members’ relatives.

But anyone who lives in the state of California can join by first becoming a member of the Automotive Trade Organizations of California, with Patriots Credit Union fronting the $25 membership fee.

The website is a bit confusing on whether you must be a California resident to join. A credit union representative confirmed you must live in the state.

A membership application is available on the website. Membership requires a $5 deposit in a savings account.

Members can buy CDs online, over the phone or in person. Patriots Federal Credit Union has two branches in southern California, in Aliso Viejo and Santa Ana.
