You may make unlimited transfers and withdrawals in person at a OneWest Bank Branch or at an ATM, or by mail. You may make up to six preauthorized or automatic transfers or withdrawals from the account to other accounts (including other OneWest accounts), withdrawals by check, draft or similar device, point-of-sale debits, and debit card transactions per statement cycle. An excess activity fee will be charged for each of these transactions exceeding the limit during the statement cycle period.
Our OneWest Premium Money Market Account requires a minimum opening deposit of $1,000. There is a monthly service charge of $10 if the average balance for the month falls below $10,000.
Interest is compounded daily and deposited into your account monthly.
A Certificate of Deposit (CD) is a time deposit requiring you to deposit an amount of money for a specified length of time in order to benefit from the interest rate offered. Any withdrawals from the account prior to maturity (other than any interest already credited) are subject to an early withdrawal penalty, and additional deposits are generally permitted during the CD's 7-day grace period, after maturity. A Money Market account on the other hand is a liquid account. This means you can make deposits, limited withdrawals and transfers, or close the account at any time without penalty.
