East Coast Deal On 4 Top CD Rates

Chessie Federal Credit Union offers its top rates with a $500 minimum deposit.Though its top CD rates have fallen by more than a quarter of a percentage point since late spring, Maryland-based Chessie Federal Credit Union still offers competitive deals across four terms.

With a $500 minimum deposit, it pays:

  • 0.95% APY on 6- to 11-month CDs.
  • 1.26% APY on 12- to 23-month CDs.
  • 1.56% APY on 24- to 35-month CDs.
  • 1.76% APY on 36-month CDs.

All four of those deals beat the best nationally available offers on our CD Rates Leaderboard. But you’ll score the best deal on 24-month CDs, which pay more than a quarter of a percentage point better than you’ll get from the top CD offered to savers nationwide.

You must be a member of Chessie Federal Credit Union to purchase these certificates of deposit.

Membership is available to anyone who lives, works, worships and attends school in the Maryland counties of Allegany, Garrett and Washington (western portion only), and the West Virginia counties of Mineral and Taylor.

Members’ family members and hundreds of employer groups are also eligible for membership. A complete list of those groups is on the credit union’s website (

Members can buy CDs over the phone or at one of Chessie Federal Credit Union’s five offices in Cumberland and LaVale, Md., and in Keyser and Grafton, W. Va.

Compare these deals with the best CD rates from scores of banks in our extensive database.
