Money Market Account

If you want to earn a higher rate of interest than a typical Share Draft Account Money Market Account would be another option. This account acts much like a Share Draft Account, but earns a higher rate of interest then your typical savings or checking accounts.  A Money Market Account allows unlimited cash withdrawals or transfers of $250.00 or more and up to three check withdrawals each month.
