What is a high-yield checking account?
A high-yield checking account offers the ability to earn more on your account balance thanks to a higher annual percentage yield (APY). Compared to regular checking accounts, which usually offer low to no interest, a high-yield checking account is an easy way to make more on your current balance.
With High-Yield Checking from TDECU2, you not only earn 12.5x the national average than other checking products, you also gain access to free identity theft recovery services, free credit score monitoring and ATM fee rebates. We also automatically upgrade your TDECU savings account to a high-yield savings account so you earn 1.00% APY on your savings balance.
Simply make 10 or more debit card transactions each month (not including ATM transactions).
Monthly deposits must total $500 or more and may be deposited via ACH, payroll, a pension or from government benefits.
