Once you have verified the test deposit amounts, the funds will reach your new CFG account within 1-3 business days.

Money Market Account Information
What is the minimum balance that I can have in the account?
You must maintain a minimum balance of $1,000 in the account daily to avoid a $10 service fee.
If the rate changes, will the rate change on my account too?
Yes. The rates for the High Yield Money Market are variable and subject to change.
Why is my initial deposit not showing as available in my account?
If you have opened your account with $25,000 or more, we place a ten business day hold on the funds. You are earning interest during this time. The funds will be available to you after these business days have passed.

Why do I have to input my username and password from my other institution in order to set up an external transfer?
This is a feature your institution requires for security purposes because you are granting permission to a third party to access your account.

Once funding occurs, the daily external outbound transfer limit for the CFG High Yield Money Market Account is $5,000. The daily inbound transfer limit is $25,000.
