Quiz

Which savings account is right for you?

  • What would you like to save up for?
    • An upcoming event, like a vacation or holiday shopping.
    • I’m most interested in growing my money while I save it.
      • Do you need immediate access to your money, or are you willing to put it away for awhile?
        • I’d prefer to have regular access.
          • Ok! How much were you thinking of putting in an account?
            • Quite a lot. Maybe over 150,000?
              • Perfect. We might suggest our Premium Money Market account. You can still access your funds at any time. However, by putting a large sum into the account, you’ll still enjoy an excellent dividend rate.
            • I want to put some money in an account, but not that much.
              • Sounds good! We might suggest our Money Market account. This is different than a regular investment account, because you can access your funds at any time. As long as you can put at least 2,500 into an account, you’re eligible.
        • I’m comfortable putting it away for a while.
          • Great! Do you want a fixed dividend rate, or would you prefer to change it at some point?
            • Fixed sounds good to me.
            • I can change the rate? I’m interested in that.
              • You may be interested in one of our Step-Up Certificate accounts. It’s similar to a Share Certificate, but you’ll have a one-time opportunity to change your rate.
    • I’m really just interested in a Yolo Federal membership.
