FAQs About Our Money Market Account
- How much money do I need to open a Money Market Account?
The minimum opening balance is $2,500. You'll get competitive rates right away and then your rates will go when your balance reaches $100,000 and $250,000.
- What happens if my balance drops below $2,500?
If your balance drops below the minimum opening balance of $2,500, your account will stop earning interest and could potentially be closed.
- Can I withdraw money from my Money Market Account any time I like?
Yes, you can withdraw funds from your account any time you like, using your special checkbook, a fund transfer, or by visiting a branch.
But note: There is a six per month limit on certain types of withdrawals, including those by check, draft, or debit card, as well as preauthorized, automatic or internet transfers, and telephonic orders or instructions.
The number of in-person withdrawals may not be subject to the same limits.
- What happens if I make more than six withdrawals per month?
The number of withdrawals you can make are mandated by the federal government in return for the fact you can get higher than usual rates on your balance.
If you exceed your six withdrawals per month, you may have to pay a fee and your account may eventually be closed. In that case, your funds would be transferred to another type of account.
- What's the difference between the dividend rate and APY?
The dividends you earn on your account are your reward for being a partial shareholder of CommonWealth Central Credit Union. The dividend rates are always given as a percentage.
Your dividends are also compounded on a schedule throughout the year, meaning you earn interest on the funds you put into your account -- and you also earn interest on the dividends that those funds earn.
So, annual percentage yield (APY) considers the original dividend percentage as well as the compounding schedule to show you what you'll ultimately earn.
