1 APY=Annual Percentage Yield. Variable rates are valid as of 05/03/2023 and are subject to change after account opening without notice. A Patelco checking account (opened under the same Member Number) with total monthly deposits of $500 or more is required to receive the higher interest rate (dividend rate). If the Money Market Plus account does not meet the requirement 3 calendar months after the account is opened, the lower interest rate of 0.05% APY will be applied to the account until the requirements are met. Qualifying deposit transactions include: payroll direct deposits; Social Security (or other government benefit) direct deposits; ACH transfers; Zelle, Venmo, PayPal or other similar deposits; cash deposits; check deposits (except checks written from another Patelco account); wire transfers; or multiple deposits (of the types listed above) that add up to at least $500 in a calendar month. Qualifying deposit transactions do not include Patelco account-to-Patelco account transfers.

For more details, read our Money Market Plus Account Overview.

2 Informa as of 4/17/2023.

3 Link your Money Market Plus to your Free Checking for overdraft protection. Or enroll in Instant BackUp on your checking account to receive overdraft coverage up to $500. You’ll pay interest only on the amount you borrowed for the amount of time it’s outstanding. No overdraft fees apply to checking accounts opened after 04/05/23.

4 Early access to direct deposit funds depends on the timing of the receipt of the payment file from the payer. We generally make these funds available on the day the payment file is received, which may be up to 2 days earlier than the scheduled payment date.
