DollarSavingsDirect Savings Account Is New Rate Leader - 9/21/2022

Emigrant Bank’s second online division, DollarSavingsDirect, increased the rate of its Dollar Savings Account, and it's now the rate leader for online savings accounts.

First Online Savings Account To Reach 3% APY - 9/20/2022

DollarSavingsDirect just increased the rate of its online savings account from 2.00% to 3.00% APY! This is one of the three online divisions of Emigrant Bank. The oldest online division, EmigrantDirect, was the first to offer a 3% APY savings account back in the 2004-2006 rate hiking cycle. I'll have a blog post on this soon. I just wanted to get the news out ASAP. It's now listed at the top of our savings account rate table.

Rate Increase - 5/12/2022

Noticed DollarSavings bumped up their rate to 0.75% APY today, effective 6 May. Earlier this year it was 0.35%.

60 Days Advance Written Notice

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for contacting DollarSavingsDirect regarding our Account Disclosure. We truly appreciate this opportunity to assist you.

As stated in the Refusal to Permit Withdrawal section within the Account Disclosure: The Bank may refuse to permit withdrawals in cases such as, but not limited to, the following:

The Bank chooses to exercise its legal rights to require up to 60 days advance written notice of any intended withdrawal from this Account and the 60 days have not passed since we received the required notice from you; ...

This legal right is granted to the bank under NYS Banking Law Section 238-2. Emigrant Bank has been in operation since 1850 and has never exercised that right.

Emigrant Bank is a well-capitalized institution and is one of the oldest and strongest banks in the country.
