Bethpage Federal Credit Union may be one of the best financial institutions in the state of New York when it comes to what it offers for CDs. You can get a 60 month CD certificate with an APY as high as 1.10%. Not to be outdone, the minimum deposit is $50.

For a CD account, it’s by far the lowest minimum deposit that you can find. Typically, some CD minimum deposits will range anywhere between $500 to $1000 (or more). Aside from a 60 month CD, you can also get CDs ranging from 3 to 48 months. There are business CDs that are available. 

Businesses can get the same APY rates along and a $50 minimum balance as if you were an individual member. If you want to open a CD for your IRA, no problem. You can build your retirement at competitive rates that you probably would never say no to. 

Aside from offering CDs to individuals and businesses, you can be able to open up a checking or savings account. It’s all part of doing business with a bank that has served New York City and parts of Long Island since 1941. With competitive rates and short-term certificates available, the choices are all up to you.
