My bank pays 1.3% on money market account balances of $10K to $40K, 1.4% if balance is $40K to $75K, and 1.5% is balance is over $75K. I took this year's IRA distribution in January and pulled cash from my brokerage account that I usually 'store' in a money market mutual fund for emergency use. I'll earn the same rate as a 6 month CD at that bank and will have access to the money any time I want. This looks like a good deal for at least this year and probably next year. If money market mutual fund yields recover I can always go back there.
