More often than not you can find some of the best CD rates at credit unions. Freedom Credit Union has one of the highest CD rates on a long term share certificate. Freedom Credit Union's current 60 month CD rate is at 1.98 percent with an APY of 2.00 percent. That 5 year rate is higher than most CD rates at banks right now.

Other share certificate rates at Freedom CU are competitive. For example, right now the current 6 month CD rate at the credit union is 0.55 percent with an APY of 0.55 percent. This CD rate is considerably higher than the national average CD rate of 0.18 percent and credit union CD rates.

12 month CD interest rates are currently at 0.70 percent with an APY of 0.70 percent. 12 month bank CD rates on average are currently at 0.28 percent so you can see the theme here, Freedom's rates are higher than the average rates available at banks or credit unions.

Freedom offers these CD rates on Term Share Certificates of Deposit (CDs), Individual Retirement Account (IRA) CDs, IRA Savings Accounts, Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA) CDs, ESA Savings Accounts, and Health Savings Account (HSA) CDs.

The minimum opening deposit for people 26 and over is $500 while the minimum for those members who are 25 and younger is only $250. It's nice to see the credit union lower the opening deposit for younger members who are just starting out in life learning how to save money.
