Savings & Money Market Accounts FAQs

  • What is the difference between an Online Savings Account and Money Market Account?

    The main difference is in how you access your money. A money market account gives you more access because you can be issued a Visa® Debit Card and checks for these accounts. An online savings account does not support the use of checks and does not come with a debit card.

    It's important to note that there are Federal limits on transactions from U.S. savings and money market accounts.

    You can always call us and request a check made out to you. You can also make unlimited deposits and ATM withdrawals. But, Federal law limits other electronic, telephone and check transactions to a total of 6 per statement cycle. These limited transactions can be to other accounts or to a third party. If you go over the limit we charge $10 per transaction.
