Desjardins Savings Accounts of february 2023

Types of Desjardins savings accounts

Desjardins offers four types of savings accounts.

  1. Regular Savings Account is available to chequing account holders. The interest rates on the funds deposited in this account range from 0.05% to 1.30%, depending on whether you hold it in a registered or non-registered plan. A regular savings account provides no cheque-writing privileges.
  2. Enhanced Investment Account is a no-fee savings account available to chequing account holders. The regular interest rate provided by this account is 1.30% on all balances. There are no minimum balance requirements.
  3. High-Interest Savings Account is available only to individual members with an AccèsD account. Being eligible for non-registered plans and RRSPs, this savings account allows you to earn 1.30% interest on each dollar deposited, with no monthly fees and minimum balance requirements.
  4. TFSA – Savings Account is available to clients with a TFSA and Desjardins everyday account. With this account, you can earn 1.00% non-taxable interest. The periodic investment plan allows you to decide how much to deposit in your TFSA savings account and how often. There is a minimum deposit amount of $25 per transfer and an overcontribution tax of 1% per month. A TFSA savings account involves no monthly fees.
