Examples of how Simply Savings tiers works for you. We promise, it’s simple.
You deposit $1,000 into a Simply Savings, you earn 1.25% interest on all of your funds, so your APY interest rate on your statement will show as 1.26%.
You deposit $90,000 into a Simply Savings. You will earn 1.25% interest on the first $25,000; 0.01% on the next $25,000; 0.04% on the final $40,000. Therefore, when you see the APY interest rate on your statement, it will show as 0.36%.

(1) on your first $25,000.00
(2) Rates are subject to change after the account is opened. Fees assessed may reduce earnings on the account.
(3) The interest for this account is based on variable rates for each “Split Balance” tier. Interest will be paid on a Split Balance rate calculation method: When split balance rates are used, the portion of an account’s Available (Collected) Balance (AB) which is less than or equal to the first split balance amount earns interest on the first rate tier. The portion of an account’s (AB) which is less than or equal to the second split balance amount earns interest at the second rate tier. The portion of an account’s (AB) which is less than or equal to the third split balance amount earns interest at the third rate tier, and so on up to a maximum of six split balance amounts and six split interest rate tiers (shown above “Simply Savings Split Balance Tiers). The interest rate and overall Annual Percentage Yield (APY) will depend on the (AB) in the account according to the rate tier applied to each portion of the account balance. A $2.00 Low Balance Service Fee is charged when the Available (Collected) Balance (AB) is below $100.00 for the statement cycle. Interest is calculated daily based on the (AB) in the account for each individual day. Daily interest totals are then combined and applied to the account as a single interest total at the end of the statement period. The available balance is the account balance, less unpaid deposited items drawn on other financial institutions in the process of collection. Please E-mail us or contact a Personal Banker at one of our branches for current rate information.
(4) Simply Savings accounts may have an ATM card attached. If you would like a debit card, you must have a GSB checking account associated with your savings.
**All Simply Savings accounts will incur a $2.00 charge per withdrawal/debit over 6 per statement cycle.
Rates valid as of December 1, 2020.
Important Information about Procedures for Opening a New Account: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal Law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person or business that opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that allows us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
