SCARBOROUGH — According to, a leading website that surveys rates of financial institutions nationwide, Town & Country FCU’s 12-month share certificate rate ranks first out of the 287 financial institutions surveyed with similar length-of-term CDs. The credit union introduced the new rate of 3.04% APY on May 1.

“We work hard to offer rates that are not only competitive but stand out, both on the lending and savings side. The new rate ties in nicely with our Million Dollar Challenge initiative, which we launched in April, and is an effort to help save our members collectively an additional $1 million dollars through better rates on savings, fewer and lower fees, and better rates on a wide variety of loans. Our goal is to provide a way for members to build savings through our savings products including our CDs. It’s quite a distinction to have our 12-month Share Certificate special rate ranked first in the country, and reinforces our focus on providing value to our members,” stated David Libby, President and CEO of Town & Country FCU.

The 12-Month Share Certificate at Town & Country FCU only requires a $500 minimum to open. is the first major financial institution comparison site that’s truly unbiased. It states that it receives no compensation for over 99% of the banks and credit unions it lists.
