Have a question?
What is the minimum balance that I can have in a Money Market account?
You must maintain a minimum balance of $1,000 in the account daily to avoid a $10 service fee.
If the Money Market 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 Money Market 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.
When are my Money Market account funds available?
For the first 30 days after initial funding, all deposits are placed on hold and unavailable for withdrawal.
How can I make additional deposits to my Money Market account?
You can make additional deposits to your account by ACH transfer, mobile deposit, or by visiting or mailing a deposit to one of our Maryland area branches.
How do I set up external transfers to deposit or withdraw from my Money Market account?
You can enroll in our online banking service and visit the transfer tab. You will see a ‘launch external transfer’ link where you will be able to link up to four accounts to do transfers.
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.
What are the external transfer limits?
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. Your total external transfers both inbound and outbound may not exceed $30,000 in a 30-day rolling period. If you have a transaction scheduled, you will not be able to schedule a subsequent transaction until your scheduled transaction has fully processed through your account. If you are initiating the transfer from another institution, you will be subject to their transfer limits.
How do I increase my external transfer limit?
Please call us at 888-205-8388 during our weekday business hours. We will record verification of your identity and request prior to inputting the increase. Your increase will last for five business days.
Do you offer checks with the Money Market accounts?
No, we do not allow check writing or ATM cards with this account.
How do I wire funds from my account?
Please call us at 888-205-8388 during our weekday business hours. We will record verification of your identity and request prior to providing you with the wire transfer paperwork. A wire can be sent for you on the same business day if we receive the paperwork back from you by 3PM EST. A fee is charged for this service.
How do I add a beneficiary to my account?
How do I add a joint owner to my account?
Please call us at 888-205-8388 during our weekday business hours. We will verify your identity and your request prior to asking you the information needed to add the joint owner. We will also request additional information to be sent to us by secure email.
When can I close my account?
You will not be able to close your account for the first ten business days of the account being opened.
Is there a penalty for closing the account?
If you are closing a CFG High Yield Money Market account, there are no penalties. Certificates of deposit do have penalties associated with an early closeout. Please refer to your account agreement for specific penalty information.
