Is there a limit to how much money I can put in my account?
American Express National Bank reserves the right to refuse, return, or limit any deposit you make to your account, and to set a maximum total account balance per depositor, in our discretion. The current maximum total account balance is $5 million.
Should interest cause your balance to exceed $5M, you will continue to receive interest and your account balance can grow to exceed $5M. However, you will not be able to make any transactions that would result in the balance remaining in excess of $5M. No deposits can be made that would cause the balance to exceed $5M. In order to make an online withdrawal if the account balance has exceeded $5M, you will be required to withdraw an amount that would bring the balance to $5M or less. If you have a balance above $5M and you want to withdraw only a portion of the amount that exceeds $5M, please call 1-800-446-6307 to speak with a representative.
