Question: What is a MMA (Money Market Account)?
Answer: It is a type of share savings account where very little account activity is expected and is normally controlled by assessing fees for excessive activity and/or for falling below the required minimum balance of $1,000. The two key features of this account versus a regular savings account is the added dividend earning potential and the capability to write checks from that account even though it is a special share account. It is commonly referred to as a Money Market Account.
Question: How many withdrawals/transfers may I make from this account?
Answer: You may make six (6) per month as limited by Federal law and regulation. Included are transfers to third parties by means of a preauthorized, automatic, telephonic, home banking or audio response transfer or instruction. Exempt are transfers/withdrawals made in person. If you exceed the limit on preauthorized and automatic withdrawals/transfers, you will be assessed $12 fee for each occurrence. If you continually exceed the monthly transaction limit, your MMA may be closed as prescribed by law and regulation.
Question: Do I need special checks to access this account?
Answer: Yes. Checks should be ordered when this account is opened.
Question: May this account be used for overdraft protection?
Question: May I set up online bill payment from this account?
Question: May I use my check card on this account?
Question: If my account is assessed a fee for failure to maintain required balance or for excessive withdrawals and my account starts the new dividend period below minimum balance requirement, will I be assessed a fee?
Answer: Yes, you need to make sure your minimum balance is always at or above the minimum balance required of $1,000. Example: Your balance falls to $500 on October 15, and you make a deposit of $520 on October 30 to bring your balance up to $1,020. You are assessed a $10.00 minimum balance fee and $12.00 in excess withdrawal fees on October 31 so that your balance declines to $998.00 on October 31. You did not make another deposit before the fees were assessed on October 31. So, your beginning balance on November 1 is $998.00 and you will be assessed a $10.00 minimum balance fee on November 30.
