State Farm Savings Account Rates
If you’re a State Farm customer, managing your bank accounts and insurance policies in one place can be appealing.
State Farm used to offer its own credit cards and bank accounts. But in 2020, State Farm and U.S. Bank announced a strategic alliance, and U.S. Bank took over State Farm’s existing deposit and credit card accounts. Through their agreement, customers could open U.S. Bank accounts through State Farm insurance agents or State Farm’s website.
But take note: State Farm savings account interest rates tend to be lower than the national average, and U.S. Bank charges monthly account fees.
State Farm's savings account rates may vary by location, and the rates listed below may not be available in all regions.

State Farm Savings Accounts: Key Features
|State Farm/U.S. Bank Standard Savings Account Key Features|
|Minimum Balance to Earn Highest APY||$25|
|Monthly Service Fee||$4|
Through State Farm’s website and agents, you can get information about U.S. Bank’s account options, including savings accounts.
Although some banks may have several different savings accounts serving various customer groups, U.S. Bank has just one savings option: the Standard Savings account.
The Standard Savings account requires a minimum deposit of at least $25, and there is a $4 monthly fee. However, you can qualify for a monthly fee waiver if you meet one of the following criteria:
- You maintain a daily balance of $300 or more.
- You have an average monthly collected balance of $1,000 or more (average monthly collected balance is calculated by adding the principal balance of each calendar day and dividing by the number of days in the statement period).
- You are, or a joint account holder is, 17 or younger.
- You have a U.S. Bank checking account and enroll in the Smart Rewards program and meet the requirements for the Primary tier (your combined U.S. Bank account balances total at least $20,000).
Although the State Farm/U.S. Bank savings account interest rates are quite low, the account does earn some interest. Interest is compounded daily, and is credited to your account quarterly.
You can use Investor.gov’s compound interest calculator to find out how your money would grow over time at different APYs.
About State Farm: Other Savings Options
Besides its insurance products, you can also open savings and investment accounts through State Farm. Certain banking products, such as the State Farm money market account and certificate of deposit (CD) accounts, are issued through its agreement with U.S. Bank.
Some of the CDs and money market accounts offer much higher-than-average annual percentage yields (APYs), so they could be a good option to build your savings.
