How an RMCU Money Market Account Helps You Save

When it's time to make your money work for you, rather than just working for your money, it pays to look into accounts with higher interest rates and more growth options. That's where a money market account from RMCU comes in.



What is a Money Market Account?

A money market account is designed to help you save, just like a classic savings account or a CD. But unlike a traditional savings account, money market interest rates are typically higher. Plus, that interest is compounding, so you're gaining interest on the interest each period. And unlike a CD, you can often make a certain number of withdrawals each month, or write a set number of checks to draw on the account. Those types of limitations are part of what makes the higher interest rate possible. 




RMCU Money Market Accounts 

RMCU has a money market account for whatever stage you are in life. With standard and premier options, you're all set to take charge of your savings future. Here's the rundown of what to expect from each account. 



There's nothing standard about RMCU's standard money market account, at least when you compare it to traditional savings. You're looking at an interest rate of 0.30% to 0.45% APY. For a frame of reference, standard savings accounts will typically yield 0.12% to 0.20%, so if you're ready to see your money grow, a money market account is a great idea. With a minimum balance requirement of $2,500, you'll be putting plenty extra in the bank, especially since you have that daily compounding interest to look forward to. With a relatively low minimum balance, the barrier for entry won't pose a problem as you're looking to put more of your money into savings.

A Premier Money Market account is for those who have a little more to sock away, but still want to have easy cash access. This is a great place to put your money while you're saving up for a down payment on a house or planning a big purchase and don't want to have that money tied up in the stock market or other long-term investments. With a higher minimum balance requirement of $50,000, you're also looking at higher interest rates: around 0.50% to 0.65%. And you still have free online banking and e-statements to make managing your money simple.
