What is a Money Market Account?
Money Market Accounts offer more liquidity than other high-interest accounts and provide low risk and FDIC coverage. Interest in a Money Market Account is compounded daily, resulting in a higher return. At Peoples Bank, our Money Market Account features tiered-interest rates. When you invest more money in your account, you receive a higher rate of interest.
How is a Money Market Account different from a Savings Account or a CD?
Money Market Accounts earn a higher rate of interest than normal savings accounts, and the interest is compounded daily. Both Money Market Accounts and Savings Accounts are FDIC-insured, low-risk accounts. Certificates of Deposit (CDs) offer a high interest rate but lock your funds in for a specified amount of time. You can withdraw money from your Money Market Account without a penalty and will incur fees for early withdrawals from a CD.
How do I know if a Money Market Account is right for me?
If you have enough to meet the opening deposit of $25 and want to maintain access to your funds while earning interest, a Money Market Account at Peoples Bank may be the right account for you. With a Money Market Account, you’ll earn higher interest rates than a Savings Account while still benefiting from unlimited in person transfers and withdrawals.
What is the best way to use a Money Market Account?
Money Market Accounts are best used for emergency funds or as a holding account for recurring tax or tuitions payments. For funds you need to access occasionally, a Money Market Account is a great way to store and grow your money.
