Wish I could open an CD account online without going into the branch. Got email said declined. Said, "unable to verify your identity". However, I would like to give Sumita from the Natick branch because she always goes out of her way to help me and gets back to me right away.

Dealt with an IRA CD Expert

5

Got to talk with an IRA CD expert who knew the rules for Minimum Required Distribution (RMD) and knew the HFCU rules for those CDs. Earlier I changed the term of my IRA CD so that I could pay the RMD when required. The term was 30 months instead of my usual 60 months. Staff member told me I could go to 60 months because there is no penalty for withdrawing the RMD. No staff member explained that to me in the past. BTW: I recently got a 12 month CD from another credit union at 3.04%
