*Rates are subject to change weekly. Funds earn dividends from the first business day of deposit and are compounded daily and posted monthly. Money Market dividends are calculated on the full balance using the highest applicable dividend rate. Accrued dividends are forfeited if account is closed prior to monthly dividend posting. Fees or other conditions may reduce earnings. Refer to DCU's Truth-in-Savings Disclosures and Account Agreements and Schedule of Fees and Service Charges.

Annual Percentage Yield (APY) is a figure calculated using a federally-mandated formula. It's designed to help you compare the return you'll get in a uniform way between the certificate, savings, and money market accounts offered at various institutions. It tells you at what percentage your money will grow in one year at the same dividend rate – including the effects of compounding. For example, the APY on a 6-Month Certificate would be what you earned at the end of a year if you renewed your certificate once, did not add to or subtract from the balance along the way, nor withdrew any dividends.

Are there any requirements to opening a Money Market account? like credit score, etc? I already have DCU checking and savings accounts

Asked by: sophie
If you already have a DCU Savings and Checking, then you may easily open a DCU Money Market by clicking the Open Accounts tab in Online Banking. The only requirement is that you maintain a balance of $1,000 or more to earn dividends.

How is the penalty applied when account balances fall below $1,000?

At what minimum balance is the account closed?
Asked by: Mrbill
The minimum balance needed to earn dividends on a Money Market is $1,000, however, no penalty is assessed if the balance falls below $1,000, just no dividends are earned for those days. The minimum balance needed to keep the account open is $0.01. If the balance maintained is zero, after several months the account will automatically close.
