Max Interest Checking Account FAQ

What is an interest-earning checking account?

An interest-earning checking is like a regular checking account but way cooler. It works like a standard checking account by giving you access to your money whenever you need it, but with one big difference - it pays you! You can activate this higher interest just by swiping your debit card and utilizing e-statements*. Before you know it, you'll be earning some serious cash dividends with an annual percentage yield (APY)*. It's like getting a paycheck - just for living your life!

How does it work?

Our MyLife Max Interest Checking account offers cash dividends, paid out monthly, that use an APY interest rate on your average daily balance. If you use your debit card 20 times a month (or more), and are signed up for e-statements, your daily average checking balance will start to earn interest using our APY. This interest is then paid out at the end of the month on your average daily balance, up to $10,000*. That's right, we said up to $10,000! Roll out the red carpet, because you're about to become a financial high-roller!

How much do I need to open a MyLife Max Interest Checking account?

Opening an account is free at FinancialEdge Credit Union! Our MyLife max Interest Checking accounts only require a minimum opening balance of $25.00. But, if you're eyeing a higher payout, keeping as much moolah in your account as possible can lead to sweeter perks! The secret sauce is in the average daily balance. Keep your balance healthy, and watch as the benefits grow even bigger by the end of every month!


*Annual Percentage Yield designated as APY and subject to change at any time. Must enroll in eStatements and use your FinancialEdge Credit Union Debit Mastercard® at least twenty (20) times per month for purchases, excluding ATMs, to earn 5.00%APY. Balances over $10,000 will earn .02%APY. The earned per year amount shown is calculated by a full year at the account balance amount selected in the slider. Your results may vary as your daily account balance fluctuates. Transactions that are pending on your account and have not posted as of the end of the monthly qualification cycle will not count as a qualifying transaction for that cycle.
