“The results uncover a balance of sorts among Georgia CD rates and savings account rates,” shares Jennifer Calonia, the study’s chief reporter. “Georgia’s 0.24% APY savings rate average helped the state rank 15th in the nation and above the national average for savings account rates; on the other hand, its CD rates were far less impressive with 6-month CDs and 2-year CDs falling below national averages.”
The Go Banking Rates’ report also names the top 10 financial institutions for savings accounts, 6-month, 1-year and 2-year CDs to help Georgia residents locate the best banks and credit unions in the state. Furthermore, the investigation contains information on which local banks and Georgia credit unions offer yield rates higher than 1%.
