What is a Money Market Deposit Account
A money market deposit account (MMDA) is a type of high-yield savings account that generally earns a higher interest rate than a standard savings account. Like a traditional savings account, MMDA’s are also insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) up to applicable limits if the financial institution is a member of the FDIC such as Ponce Bank. MMDA’s were created to be more competitive with money market mutual funds than a traditional savings account.
About Ponce Bank
Ponce Bank was born in The Bronx in 1960, a time when most banks had abandoned what was then perceived to be a community in decline but in which our founders saw nothing but the potential of proud neighborhoods anchored by a strong immigrant work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit. They dreamed that all that was needed was a financial fuel. And in the 60 years since, we’ve provided that fuel for this engine of creativity and resilience and we’ve helped develop pockets of this spirit throughout The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and New Jersey. We never landed in comfortable places, choosing to help where help was needed most, and during this time we’ve become trusted partners throughout the communities we serve.
Our designation as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) certifies this role as an investor in the future of underserved and underbanked communities.
Ponce Bank. Dreamers Welcome.
