ANSWERS TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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.
