If the Average Daily Balance is more than $15,000.00, the interest rate paid on the portion of the Average Daily Balance which exceeds $15,000.00 will be 0.49% with an APY of 0.50%, and the interest paid on the portion of the Average Daily Balance which is $15,000.00 or less will be 2.97%. The APY for this tier will range from 3.00% to 0.50%, depending on the balance in the account.
The interest rates and APYs of each tier may change. The APYs were accurate as of 8/1/2020. No minimum balance to open Savings Account or obtain the yield(s).
