High-rate savings FAQs

Can I really open a savings account with just $5?

Yes. And, Alliant will now pay you $5 for opening a savings account!

Is there a minimum balance for my savings account?

The minimum balance to keep your savings account open is $5.

Do I have to maintain a minimum balance to earn interest?

To earn interest, you must maintain a daily average minimum balance of $100. Alliant interest is paid monthly.

Can I use my convenience card to make purchases?

No. The Alliant Convenience Card is only for making transactions through an Alliant network ATM.

Are there any transaction restrictions for savings accounts?

Federal law limits the number of withdrawal transactions from savings accounts.

What is a preauthorized transaction?

A preauthorized transaction includes any arrangement with Alliant to pay a third party from your account upon verbal or written requests, including those received through the automated clearing house (ACH).

Why can’t I get a debit card for my savings account?

Savings accounts are a convenient way for members to save money. Federal regulations restrict the number of electronic transactions on savings accounts to six per month, excluding personal withdrawals. For this reason, we provide members a limited-use Convenience Card, which permits members to withdrawal cash from Alliant network ATMs. We encourage members to open a checking account for more flexible access to their money, while relying on a savings account for their money to remain and grow.
