You’ll start earning interest with a minimum balance of $1. The rate is variable – which means it changes over time. It’s determined using many factors, including economic environment, value to customers and our competition. We continuously evaluate and set our rates.
When you apply online, we’ll place a hold on any deposits for up to 5 business days. This period starts the day you complete your application, or the next business day if you apply on a non-business day.
After the hold is removed, you can use the account and access your money according to normal funds availability (the Consumer Funds Availability Policy in the Account Agreement for Personal Checking, Savings and Money Market Accounts).

When you open a new High Yield Savings account through PNC Online Banking, we will place an initial hold on the account for a period that will not exceed 5 business days, beginning with the business day on which your online application is completed (or next business day if application is completed on a non-business day). Deposits made during this period will not be available during this period for any purpose. When the initial hold is removed from your account, funds from your deposits, including deposits made during the initial hold period, will be available according to the other provisions of the Consumer Funds Availability Policy within the Account Agreement for Personal Checking, Savings and Money Market Accounts.
