Is There A Section On Depositaccounts.Com For "Senior" Savings Rates?

Some banks offer interest premiums for the 50+ (or older) crowd. Is there a place on this web site where those rates are posted? I don't think there is, but thought I'd ask in case I had missed something.

There currently is not a section dedicated to senior savings rates. I have come across a few banks and credit unions that offer premium rates to seniors, but I'm not sure if we have identified enough to make a new section or table. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for them, and if we can identify enough of them, we'll see about a new section. Another possibility is a blog post with a listing of several banks or credit unions that offer them. Thanks for your question.

From my own experience with dealing with banks, credit unions etcs. on savings rates, I have never found one which had better rates for just being a "senior".  Since a lot of their deposits are from retirees who are seniors, one would think this would be a good idea.  However, as yet, I have never found any offered.

Northwest's Heritage Club also offers free wire transfers, which is especially useful in light of their limits on ACH transfers.

Every bank I have ever dealt with had perks for seniors.  Accounts just for them, safety deposit box discounts, free checks, etc.

The best "deals" for seniors are often on the flip side, when taking IRA CD withdrawals. For example, a select few financial institutions (StateFarmBank, PenFed, and NWFCU come to mind) permit partial withdrawals from IRA CDs with no EWP for folks over 59 1/2.*  Most financial institutions waive EWPs on IRA CDs for withdrawals for RMDs (although the rules vary). As a practical matter, folks at or nearing retirement want to maximize their IRA CD yields (by going "long") while avoiding EWPs.




*I've never seen a comprehensive list of financial institutions which waive IRA CD EWPs for partials for folks over 59 1/2. The "perk" is often buried deep in the fine print.
