Transactions are limited to six (6) transfers or withdrawals during a monthly statement cycle to another account of the depositor at the same institution or to a third party by means of a preauthorized or automatic transfer, or telephonic (including data transmission) agreement, order or instruction, or by check, draft, debit card or similar order made by the depositor and payable to third parties.

The Money Market and Premium Money Market are tiered accounts. Dividend rates for a particular tier, as disclosed above, will apply to the entire account balance once the minimum daily balance reaches the balance range for that tier.

The fee cycle for all accounts subject to the minimum daily balance requirement begins on the first day of the month and ends on the last day of the month. The minimum balance must be maintained in the account each day during the fee cycle to avoid the fee.

What is a Money Market Account?
+

A Money Market Account is a savings account that is a hybrid between savings and checking accounts in that it earns higher dividends, like a savings, but allows members access to their funds easily by transfer or by check.

Can I add additional deposits to the Money Market Account?
+

Yes! Deposits may be added at anytime in any amount.

Who is eligible to open a Money Market Account?
+

To be able to open a Money Market, you must meet the following eligibility requirements: (1) You must be 18 years of age or older (2) You must live, work, worship, or attend school in Montgomery or Stewart counties in Tennessee or Christian, Trigg or Todd counties in Kentucky.

Does the Money Market Account have any fees?
+

Yes, Money Markets do have minimum balance fee. If the account falls below the $2,500 minimum balance at any time during the month, the account holder must pay a $10 monthly fee. To avoid this, we recommend setting up Online Banking notifications so that you can regularly receive updates on your account balance.

To learn more about our rates and fees, check out our Rate and Fee Disclosure.

How much does it cost to open a Money Market Account?
+

It cost $2,500 to open a Money Market Account. $2,500 is the required account minimum balance.

What are dividends and how do they work for the Money Market Account?
+

Dividends are extra money that your account earns just by being open and meeting our minimum account dividend earning value. The Money Market Account earns dividends monthly as long as your account has at least $2,500 deposited in it. It is just another way we like to say thank you to our members for trusting us with your hard-earned "dough". To learn more about what the current dividend rate is and our other savings accounts that earn dividends, please see our Rate and Fee Disclosure.

What documents do I need to open a Money Market account?
+

To verify your identity, we always ask that you come prepared with a government issued ID. It is important that it is not expired. Examples of acceptable IDs include a State Driver's License or a U.S or Foreign Passport. If we have trouble validating your ID, we may ask for a secondary ID. For children, we have a variety of other documents we can use to verify identities. These include social security cards, birth certificates, medicaid cards, and insurance cards. If you have a question about whether or not an ID can be used, just text us at 931.431.6800.
