Connecticut Bank’s Odd-Term CD Rates Dwarf Top Nationally Available Deals

Start Community Bank offers its top CD rates with a $500 minimum deposit.Start Community Bank has two special CD rates for Connecticut savers with new money to invest.

With a $500 minimum deposit of cash not already on deposit at this New Haven bank, it’s paying:

  • 1.70% APY for 17-month CDs.
  • 1.90% APY for 27-month CDs.

The top nationally available 24-month deal on our CD Rates Leaderboard pays 1.26% APY, about two-thirds of a percentage point less than the 27-month offering.

And the 17-month CD rates are more than half of a percentage point greater than the current 12-month leader.

You have to be a Connecticut resident to purchase these certificates of deposit and do so in person at one of Start Community Bank’s two branches.

They’re both in New Haven, at 258 Grand Ave. and 299 Whalley Ave.

Learn more about Start Community Bank at or call 203-285-6490 or 203-285-6501.

See how these returns compare with the best CD rates from scores of banks in our extensive database.
