  1. How to obtain the rate: This rate is valid on new accounts for clients who do not have an existing consumer money market account or for clients with an existing consumer money market account that has been open for less than 30 days. This rate is not valid for clients with a consumer money market account closed within the last 30 days. Get the Annual Percentage Yield (APY) as noted above by depositing at least $25,000 within 30 days of account opening. A minimum opening deposit of $100 is required to open.

    How to maintain the rate: Deposit at least $25,000 within 30 days of account opening and maintain a minimum daily balance of at least $25,000 each day thereafter. If the account balance falls below $25,000 the standard interest rate plan will be applied until the account balance is at or above $25,000 again. All rates and APYs are determined at the bank's discretion, are subject to change after the account is opened, and can change at any time. Fees will reduce your eligible balance, and deposits are needed to cover these fees to maintain the daily balance for this rate offer.

    The following standard interest rate plan balance tiers and APYs are accurate as of today's date: Under $10,000: 0.01%; $10,000 to $24,999.99: 0.01%; $25,000 to $49,999.99: 0.25%; $50,000 to $99,999.99: 0.25%; $100,000 to $499,999.99: 0.25%; $500,000 and above: 0.25%.

    Interest Information: You must maintain the minimum daily balance needed for each tier in order to earn the Annual Percentage Yield (APY) disclosed. Interest will be compounded daily and credited to your account monthly. We use the daily balance method to calculate interest on all deposit accounts. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day. Interest on your check deposit begins to accrue on the business day we receive credit for this account. If you close your account before interest is credited you will not receive the accrued interest. Fees could reduce earnings on the account. Other restrictions may apply.
