My Banking Direct is a service of New York Community Bank, a consumer-facing institution that offers personal and business banking products and services. New York Community Bank is a subsidiary of New York Community Bancorp, a bank holding company.
My Banking Direct was created by NYCB in order to offer higher annual percentage yields on Money Market and Certificate of Deposit (CD) accounts. By avoiding overhead costs created by branches, the bank can offer higher yields through its online platform. Money markets accounts offer interest rates that are usually among the best in the country and have an initial minimum deposit requirement. DepositAccounts.com has recognized these Money Market accounts several times in the past. CDs also offer some of the best rates in the country.
My Banking Direct online banking offers a secure platform on which customers can check their account balances, transfer funds, and pay merchants and bills. The online account can also be linked to brokerage accounts to provide an easy way to fund accounts.
New York Community Bank is headquartered in Westbury, New York, and apart from its online bank, serves its customers through multiple branches located throughout the region. It was originally established in 1859.
Just like Chipcollector indicated, same boat of holding funds hostage for 10 business days. Although interest will be earned the organization could manager prospective customer's expectations better. Spoke to a supervisor and conveyed, awaiting word. Please be advised.
The daily external transfer rate is only 50k. And, monthly is 200K. While that may be fine for some, that is a deal-breaker for me. This is especially true as most of the good online banks are significantly higher.
I opened my account back in July 2022. Everything went smoothly at first and I transferred a substantial sum into the account. Minor annoyances include very long deposit hold times for checks to release funds, rate information not shown on their mobile app, ACH transfers are "standard" which take 3 days of lost interest. They sent me an e-mail on Oct. 3 months after account opening, asking me to verify my address by uploading a bill to their account creating portal. I missed this e-mail which resulted in them locking my account preventing any withdrawals as of mid November. No additional e-mails, phone calls, secure portal messages etc. were sent in that time informing me what happened. I then initiated a pull ACH transfer from Ally bank which resulted in Ally also locking my account when NYCB rejected the transfer. I then called NYCB and spent several hours speaking to 3 different representatives over the course of 3 days with each promising they would call me back when they found out what was going on; no one called back. They finally sent me a secure message telling me about the address verification e-mail and reason for the lockout days after my frustrating calls. Luckily their rates did not keep up with others in the months since opening the account so I had previously transferred most of my deposits out prior to the lock out, but the aggravation of calling Ally and NYCB and spending hours on the phone should give anyone pause before banking here. I will update the post if I ever get my call back.
