Grant Byus, president and chief executive officer of the bank. "A new money market time deposit will be ad- ded," Byus explained. "These non-negotiable time deposits of $10,000 or more, with maturities of six months, will earn interest at a rate equal to the discount rate on the most recently issued six-month U.S. Treasury bills. "New IRA and Keough account deposits with a maturity of three years or more will be paid at a rate of 8 percent," he continued. U.S. National Bank will also add an eight-year investor certificate that will be paid at a rate of 7.75 percent. The minimum deposit will be $1,000. Time deposits of $100,000 or more will still be negotiable, Byus noted. "These new savings plans will allow the small investor to earn higher rates on their funds," he concluded. f Classified Ada } Get FAST Results!
