At what rate would you be willing to tie up at least $100,000 to $250,000 of your currently unneeded nest egg cash for a full 5 years in federally insured bank or credit union deposits?

Assume for purposes of this question that you are retired, on a fixed income, and that early withdrawal will result in a penalty equal to 6 months interest.
I'd go 5 yrs for 3.00% APY+
I'd go 5 yrs for 2.75% APY+
I'd go 5 yrs for 2.50% APY+
I'd go 5 yrs for 2.25% APY+
I would never tie any cash up for 5 yrs (explain)
