Savings accounts can be valuable tools for building a nest egg and ensuring that you meet your financial goals. Opening a joint savings account is an easy way for two or three people to manage their finances together. While a savings account in general can provide a stable method of putting funds away for projects, purchases and emergencies, a joint savings account is a way for people to save funds for the future together.

Interest Rates

Interest earned on a savings account can definitely add up as savings grow over time. Interest accrued on savings accounts is compounded on a regular basis; the frequency of compounding depends on the bank. At Ally Bank, we compound interest daily, so your balance grows faster. Moreover, opening a joint savings account can make the balance grow even faster if both of you contribute to it on a regular basis.

To find an account that fits your financial needs, pay attention to restrictions and fees in addition to interest rates.

Keep in mind, however, that when you open a joint savings account, each person listed on the account has complete and full access to the funds, so it's important to open a joint account with someone you trust.
