About This Delaware Interest Rates Study

The institutions included in the study are local banks and credit unions with branches exclusively located in Delaware, as well as institutions with headquarters within the state. Since the study focuses on local interest rate data, rates from national financial institutions are not included in the study.

Go Banking Rates pulls its rates from our database of savings account rates and CD rates from more than 4,000 banks and credit unions. Rates are based on institutions’ online published rates as of December 31, 2012.

With interest rates constantly changing, it’s important that those seeking out an account from any bank or credit union listed first verify rates with individual institutions prior to activating an account.
