Savings Account FAQs
Savings Account Basics
Annual Percentage Yield (APY) is the annual rate of return applied to your account. It includes the interest rate you're earning, plus any earned interest.
Interest is money earned at a particular rate indicated in the product disclosures.
Compound interest is the process of adding interest on the principal balance plus previously earned interest.
Savings Account Information
Depending on the type of deposit you make at a KeyBank branch, ATM or on a mobile device, your funds may be available the next business day.
There are a few exceptions that may delay your funds’ availability, including deposits for a large dollar amount or to a KeyBank savings account that has been open less than 30 days.
When making a deposit, be sure you understand when your money will be available so that you can avoid overdrafts and fees. If you have any questions about your funds’ availability, talk to a KeyBank representative by phone or at one of our branches.

Key imposes a limit of seven transactions per monthly period on certain transfers, withdrawals and payments from your savings or money market account.
The following types of transfers and withdrawals are limited to seven per monthly period:
- Online transfers from savings or money market accounts to another account.
- Transfers made over the phone.
- Automatic, preauthorized transfers, or recurring transfers like bill payments.
- Overdraft transfers from your savings account to your checking account.
- Transfers made by check or debit card.
To help you avoid this fee, KeyBank will notify you when you reach seven of these transactions within a monthly period. However, beginning with the eighth qualifying transfer, withdrawal or payment during a monthly period, KeyBank will assess a fee.
For each additional transfer, payment, or withdrawal over the limit during a monthly period, Key Active Saver accounts are charged $5.00, and Key Gold and Key Silver Money Market Savings accounts are charged $15.00.
