Interest Rate Goes Up, Again

By  | 

It's just a quarter of a point, but when combined with the first one-fourth point raises earlier this year, it's a full point to the federal interest rate setting the mark at two percent.

Shane Robinson, a comptroller with Dart Bank, says the move could help several people, including those invested in CD’s annuities.

However, those with substantial credit card debt or unconsolidated college loans could have a harder time climbing out of the hole.

The first raise of the year in June was the first hike to the federal interest rate in four years.
