This liquid feature allows penalty free withdrawals available 7 days after account opening or last withdrawal, providing minimum balance of $25,000 is maintained.

Accounts can be opened by mail or at their California branches. According to the new account page, it appears accounts are only available to individuals and businesses in California.
