A Money Market Checking Account is a great place for saving money for those future plans such as buying a house or saving for the kid's college expenses. The more money you have in a Central Coast Federal Credit Union Money Market Account, the higher dividend rate you earn. The account has an opening balance requirement of at least $2,500.00. Dividends are paid monthly on an average balance for the dividend period of $2,500 or more. Higher rates are earned with average balances starting at $7,500.00, $10,000.00 and $25,000.00. As this is considered an "investment" account, we limit withdrawals to three per month and the withdrawals must be for $100.00 or more. We supply you with free 50 Money Market checks. This is a Federally-Insured account- meaning you are never in danger of losing any of your principal investment (as is the case with some Money Market accounts at other institutions which may invest your funds in stocks, bonds or commodities).
