How Money Market Accounts Work

A money market account is great for someone who writes an occasional check but wants to gain a slightly higher rate of interest than a savings account.

With the ability to write up to three checks per month and no debit card, this is a great option for someone who has very limited transactional needs. For example, someone managing their household finances may keep a higher balance in a money market account. Once a month, they transfer money to their checking account to pay bills. This allows them to keep a smaller amount of money in their checking account for more frequent, daily transactions.

This can help to mitigate loss if their checking account gets defrauded.
