I verified in person, at the Forest Hills branch, what I had read in their promotional literature: that the 1.25% Relationship Savings rate is not guaranteed, and can be changed by them at any time. No thank you!

Thank you for visiting our new branch. It is true that we don't put a guarantee date on our savings account rates. Our savings accounts are all variable rate accounts. That being said, we rolled out the Relationship Savings over a year ago and the rate has not gone down as of this writing. We feel that building trust with our customers is most important and we accomplish that with our actions. Many institutions that give a guarantee period subsequently reduce the rate drastically the day after the guarantee date. We have chosen not to take that approach with our customers.
