Money market accounts offer more flexibility than savings accounts. The funds may be accessible via paper check and/or debit card. Most banks and credit unions also allow transfers from these accounts to checking accounts.
It’s important to note that most financial institutions place limits on the number of money market transactions you can make during a month. If you open a money market account at $100, you’ll be allowed unlimited convenient** transactions each statement cycle as long as your balance is over $2,000.
The funds in your account at are insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) up to $250,000. You can keep a large sum of money in your account with less risk.
Minimum balance requirements
Most financial institutions require a minimum initial deposit for these accounts and a minimum balance to be kept in the account at all times. Here at Zing , you can open an account with as little as $100. Also, we won’t charge a penalty or maintenance fee for a money market account, as long as there is a minimum balance of $2,000 in the account at all times.
Money market accounts can be ideal for expected occasional expenses, or for the unexpected emergency that can send a lesser-prepared individual into debt.
