Our savings accounts are a great way to set aside money. Whether you’re looking to maximize your interest or want a free overdraft protection source for your checking account4, we have savings solutions to fit your financial needs.

You may decide to open a savings or a money market account based on your financial goals. A savings account is helpful if you want to save money while earning interest.

1 To be eligible for the promotional Annual Percentage Yield (APY) of 1.85% you must open a new Relationship Money Market Account between 11/03/2022 and 12/16/2022. You must also either currently have or open a new personal checking account (excludes Health Savings Accounts) to be eligible for the promotional interest rate. The promotional interest rate is not available for businesses, institutions or public funds. APY of 1.85% and interest rate of 1.83% is accurate as of November 3, 2022. 

A minimum opening deposit of $10,000 in new money must be deposited in the Relationship Money Market account to receive the promotional interest rate. New Money is defined as money that has not been on deposit in any First Commonwealth Bank account within the last 30 days. The Relationship Money Market account will earn the promotional interest rate on balances under $150K for six months from the account opening date. The tiered interest rate and annual percentage yield (APY) is based upon the daily balance in the account: If your daily balance is between $0.01 and $149,999.99, you will receive the promotional interest rate of 1.83% on the entire balance, with a 1.85% APY. The interest rate for any portion of the daily balance exceeding $149,999.99 will earn 0.50%. The APY will range from 1.51% to 1.85%, depending on the balance in the account. After the promotional period has ended, the account will earn Relationship Rates when the primary or joint owner on the Relationship Money Market is also a primary or joint owner on a Hometown Checking + Interest + Solutions account. Please refer to the Rates section on fcbanking.com for the current interest rate information.   

The promotional interest rate is limited to one account per household and will be effective for 6 months from the account open date; after the 6 month promotional period the interest rate and APY for this product may change at the Bank's discretion. Refer to the Relationship Money Market account terms, visit fcbanking.com or call us at 800.711.BANK (2265) for non-promotional balance tiers, current rates and qualification requirement to earn Relationship Rates after the promotional period. Fees could reduce earnings on the account.

If you qualify for the promotional rate, First Commonwealth Bank will deposit the interest into your account at the end of each statement cycle and, once it’s deposited, the funds will be available immediately. Account must be active at the end of each statement cycle during the 6 month promotional period to receive the promotional interest. New account opening promotional offer is subject to change or withdrawal at any time.

2 The number of free withdrawals or transfers from a savings or money market account to another bank account of yours or to a third party by means of a preauthorized agreement, by telephone, online banking or initiated by check, draft, debit card, or similar order to a third party are limited to six (6) per statement cycle. This includes online bill payments and overdraft transfers. An Excessive Transaction Fee of $6.00 may be charged for each debit paid in excess of six (6) during a statement cycle.

3 We don’t charge for these services but standard message, data, and internet service provider rates may apply so check with your carriers.

4 Overdraft transfer services are limited to the available balance in the linked account. If the funds are not available in the linked account, the $35.00 fee for Non-Sufficient Funds or Overdraft may be assessed per item, up to 4 per day. Add Overdraft Protection by calling 800-711-BANK (2265) or visiting a community office near you.

5 Interest is earned on the daily collected balance, and is compounded and credited monthly to the account.

6 American Dream Reward Interest will be increased by .04%, up to a maximum rate increase of .12% added to the base rate, when additional accounts within the following product groupings are included in the Relationship:

  • Checking Account or Money Market Account
  • Certificate of Deposit or Individual Retirement Account
  • Consumer Loan (Installment, Home Equity, Personal Line of Credit, Mortgage or Time and Demand)

Multiple accounts within the same product grouping will count as only one.

7 In order to qualify for the Relationship Rates, the primary or joint owner on the Relationship Money Market must also be a primary or joint owner on a Hometown Checking + Interest + Solutions account. If you do not have a qualifying checking account or there are changes to your checking account (it is closed, changed to a new account type or no longer shares an owner with the Relationship Money Market), the rates may change to the non-relationship rates in effect at the time of the change.

8 There is a monthly service charge of $3 once the child reaches age 22, which can be waived by maintaining a minimum daily balance of $200. 

9 There is an early closing fee of $5.00 if the account is closed prior to the disbursement date. Partial withdrawals are not permitted.
