Savings accounts can do more than store money for special purchases — they’re part of a wealth-building strategy. The Select Money Market account is a step in that direction. When you’re able to save at least $10,000, this may be your best choice.

Unlike a basic savings account, a money market account offers the best of both worlds: higher interest rates and easy access to your money. You earn a more competitive interest rate compared to a regular savings account, meaning your savings works harder for you.

Whether you’re saving for a dream vacation, a down payment on a home, or simply building a rainy-day fund, a Select Money Market account is a trusted tool in building a more financially secure future.

Health Savings Account

Did you know you can choose First Federal Lakewood for your Health Savings Account (HSA)? You can! 

  • Minimum to open: $50
  • Set up is $10
  • No monthly service charge
  • View it through Online and Mobile Banking

Good News! If you have qualifying high-deductible health insurance coverage, you’re eligible for a HSA. You can open your account with us and enjoy both competitive rates and the mutual bank difference.

Opening a health saving account can be one of the wisest financial decisions you make. The money in the account bears interest, and you can withdraw funds at any time for qualified medical expenses. Plus, qualified contributions are generally tax-deductible. That means you can grow your savings tax-free.

As a mutual bank, we reinvest your funds to support our local communities. It’s banking with a purpose.
