What is a High-Yield Checking Account?

Often, checking accounts accrue little to no interest. Even though checking rates are prone to fluctuations, the nationwide average APY (annual percentage yield) on checking accounts sits at just 0.06%.* High-Yield Checking (HYC) accounts are special checking accounts that offer greater than average APY.

At InTouch Credit Union, our HYC account pays dividends based on your net monthly debit card spend. The more you use your debit card for purchases, the higher APY will be for the month. Take advantage of interest rates that are well beyond what even the best savings accounts offer!

Two Ways to Earn More with High-Yield Checking

By opening a High-Yield Checking account with us, you unlock two unique features to increase the dividend rate you earn on your deposit balances!

The More You Use Your ITCU Debit Card, the Higher Your Dividend APY Will Be!

Want to make every purchase or bill payment work for you? When you use your HYC debit card, each qualifying payment goes towards helping you reach the next spending tier. The spending tier you reach each month will determine the dividend rate for the month, up to a maximum "cap" balance (currently $50,000.00).

Use our High-Yield Checking Monthly Debit Spend Calculator to see what tier you qualify for.

Please note, a monthly fee will apply if debit card spending does not reach at least Tier 1 each month; see Fee Schedule for additional information.

A High-Yield Checking Certificate (CD) Offers Higher Dividend Rates

With your HYC Account, you can take advantage of account-exclusive, premium rates (over regular CD rates), on select HYC CD terms!

HYC CDs earn an additional 25 basis points over regular CD rates, while an HYC account is active and in good standing.*

For as little as $1,000.00, you can enjoy special CD offers on 3-, 6-, 12-, 24-, 36- and 60-mo. CD! Visit our All Rates page to see current rates.

*The HYC CD rate will be reduced to the equivalent regular CD term (at the time it was opened) if the HYC account is closed while the HYC CD is still open. Rates subject to change without notice. For CD rates and disclosures, visit our All Rates page.
