5 Money Market Accounts (MMA) are interest-bearing accounts unless otherwise stated. The initial rate is available for deposit balances of up to $4,000,000.00. If the Early Stage Money Market Account deposit balances exceed $4,000.000.00, the rate on the entire Early Stage Money Market Account balance will be reset to a rate at the bank’s discretion. The APY or interest rate depends on the tier associated with the amount deposited in the MMA. You must deposit and maintain the applicable account balance to earn the disclosed APY. Please refer to the Deposit Agreement and Disclosure Statement issued at opening and any updates thereto for more details. Changes to the interest rate and APY on the MMA are at our discretion and are reflected in your account statement. Interest is calculated daily and credited monthly to the account. If you close your account before interest is credited for the month, you will not receive the accrued interest during the month the account is closed. Applicable fees, including those contained in the Product Sheets and Schedule of Fees and Charges provided at account opening, could reduce earnings on the account.
