Bayer Heritage FCU CDs Pay Up To 2.15%

white piggy banks, a stack of money and a money sackSince Bayer Heritage Federal Credit Union isn’t technically affiliated with the pharmaceutical company, its above-Leaderboard CD rates aren’t limited to employees.

Which is good news, since with a $500 minimum deposit, it pays:

  • 1.89% APY for 48- to 59-month CDs.
  • 2.15% APY for 60-month CDs.

That 60-month CD rate beats its term leader on our CD Rates Leaderboard by a tenth of a percentage point.

But you still have to be a member of Bayer Heritage Federal Credit Union to purchase these certificates of deposit. Besides employees of Bayer Corp. and family members of existing members, membership is open to those who live, work, worship or attend school in Wetzel and Tyler counties, W. Va., and Monroe County, Ohio; as well as specific areas of Marshall County, W. Va.; Belmont and Licking counties, Ohio; and Berkley and Charleston counties, S.C.

Membership requires a $5 deposit in a share savings account.

Members can buy CDs over the phone, online or at a branch.

Bayer Heritage Federal Credit Union has 10 locations in Pittsburgh; Goose Creek, S.C.; Baytown, Texas; Zanesville, Ohio; and Martinsburg, Moundsville, New Martinsville and Proctor, W. Va.

    The increases Bayer made in October and November have been wiped out, and Bayer is back to paying the rates quoted in the original post.
