Business Services

You spend enough money running your business. You shouldn't have to spend more — on spending more.

That's why 1st MS offers free checking for businesses, complete with free ways to manage your account, from your own computer and mobile phone or device. Unlimited checking with no monthly service charges.

Whether it's the oil business, big business, or show business, you're in business to make money. In business-speak, this means leveraging opportunities to monetize wherever you can.

In plain language, it means that signing up for Business Checking Plus Interest is an easy way to make a little extra on the side. Because at the end of the day, when you net it out, earning dividends from checking is a win-win.

You don't need an MBA to know that running a successful business means being prepared on all fronts. Opening a basic savings account — and kicking off a relationship with 1st MS, is a solid step toward a more grounded financial footing.

Your savings account is also your share in our credit union. Because at our credit union, you're a member and owner, not just another bank customer.


  • Basic business savings account
  • Your share of ownership in 1st Mississippi Federal Credit Union
  • Earn competitive dividends
  • Must maintain $100 average daily balance to earn interest
  • Simple ways to manage your accounts
  • Free online banking
  • Free mobile banking
  • Free e-Statements
  • Free limited Visa® debit card for ATM withdrawals
  • No monthly service charge
  • Must meet membership eligibility requirements to open
  • $10 minimum opening deposit

Earning higher rates on higher balances should be enough to incentivize your savings plan. Open up a money market account and earn competitive, tiered rates on dividends.

And unlike a share certificate, you can retain limited access to your cash — in case you need to increase cash flow. And in this economy, who doesn't?


  • Business money market savings account
  • Earn tiered rates on dividends
    • Higher balances earn higher rates
  • Retain access to funds with limited check-writing capabilities
  • Maintain $2,500 minimum balance to avoid $10 service charge
  • Free online banking
  • Free mobile banking
  • Free e-Statements
  • Minimum $2,500 opening deposit

Opening a share certificate is a smart way to diversify your portfolio. Putting money into a share certificate is just a matter of waiting to cash in on your increased funds.

You're in control. You choose the term and lock in your rate. How long you wait is up to you — but the longer the wait, the higher your rate of return.


  • Savings with guaranteed returns
  • Earn competitive fixed rates
  • Terms vary from 3 months to 5 years
  • Longer terms earn higher rates
  • Penalty for early withdrawal
  • NCUA insured
  • Open with $1,000 minimum
