Hanover Community Bank (NY) Ups VIP Personal Money Market

POSTED ON BY

Deal Summary: VIP Personal Money Market, 2.00% APY, $2.5k minimum deposit

Availability: Market area covers a large portion of the NYC metropolitan area, including Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, and Kings Counties, New York.

In March, Long Island-based Hanover Community Bank (HCB) introduced its VIP Personal Money Market (VIP PMM) account. At the time, the initial 1.75% APY was competitive; the highest national MMA rate in March was 1.80% APY, offered by Bank 7. There have been no rate increases since the VIP PMM made its debut until this week, when 25 bps were added.

Rates as of September 19, 2018.

The minimum opening deposit is $2.5k, which is also the minimum balance level to earn the stated APY. Balances below $2.5k do not earn any interest and will assessed a $10 monthly maintenance fee.

As a “true” money market account, the VIP PMM has check writing ability and an ATM card is available upon request. There is a $10 excess transaction fee for each withdrawal beyond the six allowed per month.

When I first saw the VIP PMM's new rate, I was a bit hesitant to write about it, because local MMA deals tend to be rate teasers with rates that just don’t hold up. The Bank’s other MMA (Personal Money Market Account) has a noteworthy history: from 2014 to 2017, it offered a fairly competitive rate (0.95%), while internet bank Savings/MMA rates topped out in the low 1% range. HCM may now be focusing on the VIP PMM rate, letting the Personal MMA rate remain static.
