If your traditional savings or checking account holds a high balance, consider moving your funds to a money market account with Bellwether Community Credit Union. This type of account typically earns better dividends than your average savings or checking account. Make your money work harder for you by taking advantage of the higher dividends and easy access of a money market account.
A money market account works in the same manner as other types of savings accounts. Provide your information, make an initial deposit, and sit back - your money will begin earning interest at a variable. When you're ready to use your funds, access by way of check, debit card, or online transfer. Since money market funds are available for withdrawal without penalties, this type of account is a great option for your emergency fund savings.
Earn a higher dividend rate with a Bellwether money market account. Offering a higher yield than our traditional savings account, a money market account requires a balance of at least $2,500 to open and obtain dividends. Additional balance tiers up to $100,000 and above earn even higher dividends, so you can make the most of your money.
We also offer basic Primary Savings Accounts.
