9 Banks Pay At Least 1.80% On 5-Year CDs

The top nationally available 60-month CD rates pay 1.95% APY.In just a little over a month, the top 60-month CD rates have dropped a quarter of a percentage point — to below 2%.

(Remember the days when we yearned for 3%? Who thought we’d end up here.)

The most you can now earn on a nationally available 60-month CD is 1.95% APY.

KeySource Commercial Bank owns that rate, and leads the term on our CD Rates Leaderboard.

KeySource Commercial Bank (www.keysourcebank.com) has a single branch in Durham, N.C., and requires a $100 minimum deposit for CDs purchased in person, over the phone or through the mail, and a $5,000 minimum deposit for CDs purchased online.

That’s the only rate left above 1.90% APY.

Two banks pay 1.87% APY:

Broadway Federal Bank (www.broadwayfederalbank.com), which has three branches in Los Angeles and Inglewood, Calif., and requires a $500 minimum deposit.

National Republic Bank of Chicago (www.nrbchicago.com), which has two branches in Chicago and requires a $1,000 minimum deposit.
