MONEY MARKET ACCOUNT
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a Money Market Account?
A Money Market is a flexible, convenient, high yield savings account. It is a great alternative for members looking for a higher yield, but do not wish to tie up their funds in a Certificate.
Is there a minimum deposit?
Yes, we require an opening deposit of $2,500.00. If your account falls below the $2,500.00 you will automatically earn the regular savings dividend rate. If your account falls below $500.00 at any time during a month you will be charged a monthly service fee for that month.
How much is the dividend?
The Money Market account is a tier structured account and the dividends increase at specified levels of the tier. The more you save the more you earn! The highest tier is $50,000 and over! Rates and tiers are subject to change monthly.
Can I write checks against this account?
Because a Money Market account is a savings account, checking privileges are limited to 6 checks per month. Checks must be written for $250 or more. There is a fee for checks presented for under $250 and for more than 6 checks presented in one calendar month.
Why are checks limited?
Federal Banking Regulations limit the number of withdrawals or transfers from a savings account to another account or third party to 6 per month.
