ANSWERS TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Expand All Sections  close all sections 

 

What is the Power Money Market Account?

The Power Money Market Account is a new SLFCU product that offers its highest dividend rate, or APY*, on the lowest amount deposited, up to $2,500. Funds deposited above that amount earn lower rates that are applied in tiers. Rates for each tier are blended into a single rate that applies across the entire deposit amount. No matter how much you deposit, you’ll enjoy a higher rate than with a traditional savings account.

Unlike traditional money market accounts, which earn higher rates on higher balances, the Power Money Market Account offers higher rates on lower balances. This is called a “reverse-tier” type of account.

The Power Money Market Account is a smart choice to kick-start a savings habit as it offers the return of a high-earning APY without the need for a high deposit balance, and with the liquidity of a regular savings account.

Who can open a Power Money Market Account?

Current SLFCU members can apply for a Power Money Market Account online here, from within online or mobile banking, by visiting a branch, or by calling 505.293.0500 or 800.947.5328.

Non-members are invited to apply for membership and open a Power Money Market Account. Membership eligibility requirements apply. Learn more about joining SLFCU.

How does the Cash Back Bonus work?

When you make a new money deposit* to a new or existing Power Money Market Account, you will receive a cash back bonus between 1.00% and 2.00% based upon the average daily balance of the new money over a 180-day period.

New money deposits between $0.01 and $5,000 will earn a 1.00% Cash Back Bonus. New money deposits between $5,000.01 and $10,000 will earn a 1.50% Cash Back Bonus. New money deposits of $10,000.01 and over will earn a 2.00% Cash Back Bonus. The bonus amount will be added to your account at the end of the 180-day period.

*New money is considered those new-to-SLFCU funds which are: (1) received directly into the Power Money Market Account via cash deposit or via check, ACH, and/or wire deposit of funds drawn from another financial institution; or (2) received directly into another share account under the same master account as the Power Money Market Account via cash deposit or via check, ACH, and/or wire deposit of funds drawn from another financial institution and then transferred into the Power Money Market Account within five days. Account must be in good standing at the time cash back is awarded.

I'm not an SLFCU member. Can I open a Power Money Market Account?

Absolutely! You can apply for membership and a Power Money Market Account at the same time. Membership eligibility requirements apply. Learn more about joining SLFCU.

Who is the Power Money Market Account designed for?

The Power Money Market Account is designed for anyone who wants a higher yield on their deposits while keeping their money available when they need it. It’s a great way to save up for an emergency fund, or to achieve a financial goal such as saving for a vacation or a down payment on a home.

Since lower deposit amounts earn the highest rates, and there is no minimum balance requirement, it’s easy for anyone to get started with a Power Money Market Account and see their deposit balance grow quickly. Members with little to no money in savings, and/or those who do not want to lock their funds in a certificate account, are also great candidates for this type of offering.

Is there a minimum balance requirement?

Existing SLFCU members can establish a Power Money Market Account with as little as $1. To open a new SLFCU membership and apply for a Power Money Market Account, a share savings account must also be established with as little as $5.

How many Power Money Market Accounts can I open?

One Power Money Market Account can be opened per SLFCU member (based on their tax ID number).

Is this a time-limited offering?

The Power Money Market Account is not a temporary or “special” product. However, SLFCU may choose to change the rate and/or stop offering new accounts of this type at a future date due to rate /pricing environment changes or other considerations.

I already have an SLFCU money market and/or savings account. Can I move those funds into a Power Money Market Account?

Absolutely! Apply for a Power Money Market Account online, from within online or mobile banking, by visiting a branch, or by calling 505.293.0500 or 800.947.5328.

Can I access Power Money Market Account funds through an ATM?

Yes. You can make deposits to or withdraw funds from your Power Money Market Account anytime using your existing SLFCU debit card at an ATM. You can also transfer funds to the account from SLFCU savings, money market, and checking accounts.

Can the Power Money Market Account be linked for overdraft protection?

Yes. Your Power Money Market Account can be assigned as overdraft protection.

Can I use the Power Money Market Account within Zelle®?

No. Zelle is only used with checking account funds.

Can I use the account to pay bills in SLFCU’s online and mobile banking system?

No. Only checking account funds can be used in the Pay Bills function in online and mobile banking.

Can I use the Power Money Market Account to make payments using my SLFCU debit card?

No. The account cannot be used for payments made by swiping a debit card.

Can business members open a Power Money Market Account?

Can an SLFCU Individual Retirement Account (IRA) Savings Account be converted to a Power Money Market Account?

No. SLFCU is not offering the option to convert existing SLFCU IRA Savings Accounts to Power Money Market Accounts.
