Best Money Market Accounts in Mississippi of February 2023

Mary Gilman

A money market account can be great for earning a high-interest rate or annual percentage yield (APY) on the money you save. Mississippi has dozens of banks offering both online and traditional money market accounts for its residents to choose from. The main challenge is to choose an account that is right for you.

If you are looking for an account to maximize the rate of return from every dollar saved, consider an account with a high APY. Online banks often offer a more competitive yield because they have fewer overheads than brick-and-mortar banks.

Choosing an FDIC-insured money market account is a great way to protect your money. On the off chance that your bank goes under, you won’t lose your deposit. Make sure you are always within the FDIC’s limits and follow the guidelines.

Other factors to consider are the account fees and minimum requirements. Look for an account that offers a high APY with low fees and minimum requirements. If you are just starting to build your savings, consider accounts with little to none initial minimum deposit requirements.

Flexibility in depositing and withdrawing funds is also an important consideration. Most money market accounts offer debit/ATM cards, check-writing capabilities, online or mobile access. Choose an account with a combination of features that will help you reach your goals faster.
