By providing your login credentials at your external bank, we can instantly verify and link your account. This allows for a quick transfer of funds to your new account so you can start earning more interest faster.
If you funded your new account from an external financial institution it may take between 1 – 3 business days to receive those funds depending on your financial institution. If you funded via your Valley account, your deposit should be available for immediate use.
There is no monthly fee associated with your high yield savings account.
Interest will begin to accrue on the same business day your first deposit is credited to your new high yield savings account. Keep in mind external transfers may take up to 1 - 3 business days to be received from your financial institution.

Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. When you open an account, we must ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also request your driver's license or other identifying documents, even if you currently maintain a banking relationship with us. Strict adherence to these regulations helps to protect Valley and its customers from criminal activity. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
