What is a Money Market Account?

A money market account is a non-financial account that pays interest based on current interest rates in the money markets. We offer both personal money market accounts and business money market accounts — we charge no maintenance fee for either account! 

The minimum balance at which you start earning dividends for personal money market accounts is $2,500 and $10,000 for business money market accounts. You must maintain the minimum balance for the entire monthly statement cycle to earn dividends.

Easy Access

Accessing your account is easy with a money market account. You can do it three ways:


Although money market accounts are more liquid than share certificates, withdrawals are subject to certain federal regulatory limits. Six transactions are permitted per month and a fee is applied each time this limit is exceeded.

Opening a Money Market Account

To open a personal money market account, visit a branch or open an account online.

To open a business money market account, please contact us.
