Chicago CD Rates Survey for the week March 12, 2012

Written by: BetterFinancePath Staff

According to a recent Primerates.com survey conducted on March 12, 2012 of Chicago CD rates offered by the area banks & credit unions, Chicago’s largest financial institutions offered short-term savers 6 month CD’s between rates of 0.05% at U S Bank National (www.usbank.com), and 0.30% at Bank of America (www.bankofamerica.com). You will be able to obtain the highest CD rate for 2-year CD at MB Financial (www.mbfinancial.com), with a 0.50% CD, while the highest 5-year CD is offered by U S Bank National (www.usbank.com), with a return of 1.39%.

CD’s are typically insured up to $250,000 by the FDIC. As CD’s mature, banks typically re-price the rates on deposits. Make sure that you track when your CD’s mature so that you can roll them over into new CD’s and keep your money working as hard as possible.
