Jumbo money market accounts are worth considering if you have at least $100,000 in cash that you wish to keep liquid and want to earn a competitive rate.

What is a jumbo money market account?

Like a jumbo certificate of deposit (CD), a jumbo money market account usually requires a minimum deposit of $100,000 and typically offers a higher annual percentage yield (APY) than accounts with lower balance requirements. But that’s not always the case. Compare rates on Bankrate to find the right account for your money.

A jumbo money market account may also reward you with a higher rate if your balance exceeds a certain tier.

Jumbo money market account FAQs

Methodology for Bankrate’s Best MMA Rates

A money market account can be great for earning a high annual percentage yield (APY). Some accounts may let you write a limited number of checks and also offer a debit card.

Many online banks offer a more competitive yield than brick-and-mortar banks. This is because online banks don’t usually have as much overhead, since they don’t operate physical branches. Online banks need to attract your attention and high yields are a way to do this, which is good for savers.

Choosing a Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) money market account at an online bank is a safe way to get these high-yielding APYs. Just make sure that you’re within the FDIC’s guidelines and limits.
