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 account3, 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. Money market accounts are great for earning higher interest for higher balances with the added benefit of being able to write checks1 directly from your money market account.
More Great Options for Saving with a Purpose
Start saving for your child’s future with a children's savings account. You can open a Tower Savers child savings account with no minimum deposit and enjoy no monthly service charges until age 21.7 Free monthly statements are an added benefit.
Vacation & Holiday Clubs
Set aside money for a vacation or holiday shopping. Open a club account for as little as $5 and save throughout the year without the temptation to remove money, as you can only access it on your annual disbursement date.8 Reach your financial goals more easily and treat yourself to a vacation or holiday that you'll always remember.
Certificates of Deposit
Lock in your competitive rate for a term anywhere between 90 days to 60 months. Our Certificates of Deposit (CDs) are a steady method of investing and watching your money grow. We'll protect your money up to the maximum limits of FDIC insurance.
Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)
We make it easy to save for your golden years with a range of IRAs. You can start with as little as $25 with an IRA Savings or $500 for an IRA CD. Many of our IRAs offer tax benefits and help you live your retirement years in greater comfort.9 We can even set up automatic contributions to your retirement account so you can focus on now while you save for tomorrow.
Education Savings Accounts
An education savings account with us helps you manage the costs of a college degree or private school. Our Coverdell Education Savings Account (CESA) lets you contribute up to $2,000 each year for yourself, your child, your grandchild, niece, nephew or another future student. Give the gift of a brighter future with this savings account.
