The most common long term certificates of deposit are 5 year CD’s, and often this term also gives out the highest CD rates available. Right now, one of the most competitive rates for 5 year CD’s come from Intervest National Bank. They are offering the 5 year term at a considerably high 2.00% APY. This is the highest nationally available among banks, and Intervest National Bank shares its seat only with First Internet Bank of Indiana.
