What APY does State Farm Federal Credit Union offer?

State Farm Federal Credit Union share savings offers an APY of 1.01% (APY stands for annual percentage yield, rates may change). This is higher than the typical APY for online-only savings accounts, which is around 1% APY.

The interest rate on a savings account or checking account can change based, in part, on what the Federal Reserve does. Note that the APY of a savings account is the amount of interest you will earn if you keep your money in the account for a full year expressed as a percentage. The difference between an APY and an interest rate is that the APY takes into account how often your money earns interest (or compounds). The more often your money compounds, the more it will earn. Savings accounts with an interest rate that compounds daily, for example, will earn a higher return (and therefore a higher APY) than savings accounts that compound annually.
