New Jersey Deal: 1% On 5-Month CDs

For savers shying away from long-term CDs until the Fed starts raising rates, Oritani Bank is offering some attractive short-term options.

Serving northeastern New Jersey, Oritani is paying the following competitive rates on three promotional certificates of deposit:

  • 1.00% APY on 5-month CDs.
  • 1.10% APY on 9-month CDs.
  • 1.25% APY on 16-month CDs.

Even better, each of these rates can be boosted 0.15% by also having a new or existing Oritani checking account.

The 5-month certificate is the standout here, easily beating the top nationally available 6-month yield of 0.85% APY on our CD Rates Leaderboard.

Meanwhile, the 9-month and 16-month certificates rank favorably against the best national 12-month rate of 1.21% APY.

For those willing to add the checking account bump to a 5-month certificate, you can outearn the best 6-month CDs by three-tenths of a point.

To qualify for the CD rate boost, the checking account requires only a recurring direct deposit or one bill payment per month.

Oritani also has a competitive rate for savers willing to commit to a slightly longer term: 1.50% APY on its regular 36-month CD, which matches the top nationally available rate in this term.

All of Oritani’s CDs require a modest $1,000 minimum deposit and must be purchased at one of their 25 branches throughout Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Passaic counties.
