Personal Savings Accounts

Let us help you achieve your goals.

Saving is different for everyone. It’s personal. Some save for a long-planned dream, while others just want to ensure they’re set for the unexpected that could be just around the corner. But no matter what you’re saving for, when you have a plan, you can feel confident knowing you’re ready for anything.

Withdrawal Transaction Limitations. Savings and money market accounts are governed by federal regulations, which limit the number of certain types of transactions. From your savings or money market accounts, you are limited to six preauthorized, telephone or on-line transfers to your other SunTrust Bank accounts or to third parties. Additionally, this limitation includes checks, drafts, or similar orders you make payable to a third party. The limitation applies per statement cycle for monthly statements or calendar month for quarterly statements. Due to IRS regulations, these transfer options are not available for money market IRAs. In determining when a transfer is made, the bank will use the date the transfer is paid. If you routinely exceed these withdrawal limitations on your savings or money market accounts, the bank may close the account or convert the account to a checking account. The foregoing limitations do not apply to withdrawals made by you or transfers to other accounts, which you have with us when these transfers are made by messenger, in person or through ATMs. The federal regulatory limit applies regardless of account balance.

At the Bank's discretion, rates and yields are subject to change without notice after the account is opened. Interest is calculated and compounded daily on the collected balance in your account and credited to your account quarterly. Fees may reduce earnings.

By operation of federal law, beginning January 1, 2013, funds deposited in a non-interest-bearing transaction account (including an Interest on Lawyer Trust Account) will no longer receive unlimited deposit insurance coverage by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Beginning January 1, 2013, all of a depositor’s accounts at an insured depository institution, including all noninterest-bearing transaction accounts, will be insured by the FDIC up to the standard maximum deposit insurance amount ($250,000), for each deposit insurance ownership category.
