Establishing a habit of saving for your business can at times feel impossible, but the payoff for building the balance of your business savings accounts is almost incalculable.

What is a Business Savings Account?

You can use a business savings account to set money aside for unexpected or planned needs for your business. Our business savings options earn interest, allowing you to grow your savings over time.

Business Savings Account Benefits

Having a business savings account can help you:

  • Save for the unexpected: A business savings account gives you an extra financial cushion to help with unexpected expenses. Whether your equipment breaks or there's a leak in your roof, you'll gain peace of mind knowing you have the funds to cover these unanticipated costs.
  • Plan for upcoming expenses: Putting money into a business savings account can help you save for future expenses — like taxes and planned building renovations — and invest in your business's growth.
  • Grow your money: When you open an interest-bearing business savings account, your balance will earn interest over time.
  • Prevent overdrafts: Link your business savings account to your business checking account to prevent overdraft fees. If there aren't enough funds in your checking account to cover an expense, an automatic transfer from your linked savings account can fill in the gaps.1,2
  • Protect your funds: Our business savings accounts are protected by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) up to the standard maximum insurance amount of $250,000 per depositor category.
