This could be the first signs that CD rates will start increasing. One day after Sovereign Bank took the top spot for the 60 month CD term, a California based bank- Kaiser Federal Bank matched the same 3.0% APY. Kaiser Federal Bank raised its rates from 2.75% to 3.0% APY, making it a two way tie for the best available 5 year CD.

Kaiser requires a minimum of $10,000, which is much higher than Sovereigns’ minimum of just $500.
