Baltimore CD Rates Survey for the week March 5, 2012

Written by: PrimaLoans Staff

According to a recent Primerates.com survey conducted on March 5, 2012 of Baltimore CD rates offered by the area banks & credit unions, Baltimore’s largest financial institutions offered short-term savers 6 month CD’s between rates of 0.05% at Wells Fargo (http://www.wellsfargo.com), and 0.75% at Rosedale FS&LA (www.rosedalefederal.com). Rosedale FS&LA (www.rosedalefederal.com) and First Mariner Bank (www.1stmarinerbank.com) have the highest 2-year CD rates, with 1.00% CD, whereas Eastern Savings Bank (www.easternsavingsbank.com) offers the highest 5-year CD rates, with 1.70% CD.

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.
