What can a Savings Builder account do for you?

1Savings Builder is a tiered interest rate account. Tier levels are subject to change without notice. Interest rates and Annual Percentage Yields (APYs) are variable and may change without notice. Minimum to open account is $100. APYs are accurate as of October 1, 2019. Fees will reduce earnings on the account.

*APY assumes the account is opened on the 15th day of the month and no qualifying deposits of $100 are made following account opening. Actual APY may be greater or less depending on the date the account is opened.

**Interest Rate is 2.078% during the Introductory Period and 0.995% thereafter.

***APY assumes additional qualifying deposits are made each Evaluation Period.

Important Definitions

  • "Introductory Period" - Begins the day of account opening and continues through the first Evaluation Day.
  • "First Evaluation Day" - Will occur at the end of the First Evaluation Period after account opening.
  • "First Evaluation Period" - Begins on the third business day prior to the end of the month after the month of account opening and ends at 4:00 pm PT on the next month’s Evaluation Day.

    Following the Introductory Period, the following definitions apply:

    • "Evaluation Period" - Begins the day after an Evaluation Day and ends at 4:00 pm PT on the next month's Evaluation Day.
    • "Evaluation Day" - The fourth business day prior to the end of a month.

    Introductory Interest Rate
    During the Introductory Period, all new Savings Builder accounts will be paid the Upper Tier interest rate. After the Introductory Period ends, accounts will be evaluated on the first Evaluation Day to determine the interest rate to be paid for the next Evaluation Period.

    Monthly Determination of Interest Rate
    On each Evaluation Day the interest rate applicable for the next Evaluation Period will be determined. Accounts with an end-of-day balance of at least $25,000 on the Evaluation Day or with at least one deposit of $100 or more that posts to the account during the Evaluation Period will earn the Upper Tier interest rate during the next Evaluation Period. Accounts with an end-of-day balance less than $25,000 on an Evaluation Day without a deposit of $100 or more that posts to the account during the Evaluation Period will earn the Base Tier interest rate for the next Evaluation Period. This process will occur every month.

    Example:
    A Savings Builder account opened on October 15, 2019, and funded with an initial deposit of $12,000 would earn the Upper Tier interest rate during the Introductory Period, which begins on the account opening date and ends on the First Evaluation Day, December 26, 2019.

    The First Evaluation Period for this account begins on November 26, 2019 and ends on the First Evaluation Day, Thursday, December 26, 2019. With a balance less than $25,000, in order to continue earning the Upper Tier interest rate during the next Evaluation Period, the customer must make at least one deposit of $100 or more during the First Evaluation Period, November 26 through December 26, 2019.
