M1 High-Yield Savings Account, available in early 2023, will be an FDIC-insured savings account2. The base rate for the savings account will be 0.50% APY, and M1 clients with an active M1 Plus membership will earn 4.50% APY. There will be no minimum balance requirements or maximum balance caps for the M1 High-Yield Savings Account.
