Bank money market accounts can be an important part of building a strong financial foundation. Therefore, it's important to do some research when deciding where you should open a money market account.

Many banks and credit unions offer money market accounts, which are simply a kind of savings account that pays interest on the money you put into it. Sometimes bank money market accounts pay a rate of interest that is higher than traditional savings accounts.

When you do your comparisons, first be sure the banks you consider are FDIC-insured. You’ll also want to compare rates, but don’t stop there. Take a look at the requirements, restrictions and fees for each account. Since every bank money market account is different from bank to bank it pays to shop around.
