High Yield Savings Account – Jacksonville NC

Save your hard earned cash with a high-yield savings account at First Bank in Jacksonville, NC. Whether you are saving for college, saving for retirement, or just saving to take a vacation, First Bank offers interest-earning savings account options that can help you reach your goals.

What are CDs?

If you are thinking about opening a high-yield savings account, consider a certificate of deposit (CD) at your local First Bank. According to the Wall Street Journal, CDs are low-risk, low return investments, where you typically invest cash you do not need to access for months or years.

You can use a certificate of deposit to keep money safe while earning interest at a higher rate than most other savings accounts. Flexible rates and guaranteed rates of return make CDs at First Bank a solid investment.
