SmartMoney Accounts

We beat the banks and this is how we did it! Closed until further notice

Our SmartMoney savings accounts for low- and moderate-income households earn up to 21% and continuously up to 45 months.

Families with qualifying children earn $3 for every $1 saved toward their education. And those looking to purchase their first home, continue their education or open a small business earn between $2 and $2.50 for every $1 saved. If all that sounds incredible, it is.
