3 Month CD Rates

CD rates are so low these days but rates will be heading higher this year. That being said, we recommend that you invest in shorter term certificates of deposits so you can take advantage of higher CD rates when rates do rise.

The average 3 month CD rate is currently at 0.485 percent. First Federal Bank of California is currently offering the best 3 month certificate of deposit on our CD rate tables for the state of California.
