You want to focus on saving your money and still maintain easy access.  You need interest rates that work for you.

Calculating Interest in a Way to Earn You More
  • Our tiered interest rates allow you to benefit from higher rates as your balances increase. The tiers are:
  • $1 - $4,999 
  • $5,000 - $9,999 
  • $10,000 - $24,999 
  • $25,000 - $59,999 
  • $60,000 - $99,999
  • $100,000+
  • Tiered interest is calculated based on the daily closing balance and paid monthly. What’s more, your interest rate is based on the rate for the highest tier attained and is calculated on the total balance in the account, earning you more for every dollar you deposit. Other institutions only give you the rate for the tier, on the dollars in the tier. For example, if the rate for the $10,000 to $24,999 tier is 2% and your balance is $10,001, most other financial institutions only give 2% on the $1 that falls within that particular tier. Credit unions calculate interest at the 2% rate for your entire $10,001 balance.
