Savings Accounts

Whether you are saving for a new flat-screen TV or for your first home purchase, the Markesan State Bank offers various savings options for all your personal needs.  By keeping service charges to a minimum and setting a very low minimum balance on many of our accounts, we feel we are encouraging all types of savers - the very young as well as the old.

By offering these services, the Markesan State Bank allows you to individualize your own financial needs.

  • Automatic Savings Option:  Allows you to set up automatic transfers from one account to another.  For example, you can have $50.00 taken from your checking account and deposited to your savings account on the 15th of each month.
  • Automatic Loan Payments:  Allows you to have your loan payment taken directly out of your savings account and applied to your loan.
  • Direct Deposit:  Allows you to have your employer set up an automatic deposit of your paycheck, social security, or other benefit checks. This means your funds are automatically deposited into your account.  Your money will be in your account waiting for you to access it at your convenience.
  • ATM Card Services:  Allows you to have access to the funds in your savings account at any time through the use of an Automated Teller Machine (ATM).  (Note: Some fees apply, see your local office for more details.)
  • Statement Options:  Allows you the convenience of having your statements sent to you via email, through your Internet Banking account, held at the office of your choice or sent to you via normal mail.

Interest earned varies depending on the account (see Interest Rate Schedule for current interest rates). 

All deposit accounts at the Markesan State Bank are FDIC insured, including savings accounts. The standard insurance amount is $250,000.00 per depositor, per insured bank, for each account ownership category. The FDIC provides separate coverage for deposits held in different account ownership categories. Depositors may qualify for more coverage if they have funds in different ownership categories and all FDIC requirements are met.
