    Interest Earning Bank Deposit Accounts

    The Treasurer may place monies in an approved state depository.   Currently available deposit products and rates are viewable in the Interest Deposit Management System (IDMS).  New and renewed requests for state deposits should be made through the Interest Deposit Management System on Wednesday. If funds are available and approved, the deposit will be funded two days later on Friday.

    The types of bank interest earning deposits statutorily allowed are described below.


    The Treasurer may deposit the money of the state in any available bank product in any bank or savings association that is a qualified public depository under SAFE, so long as the bank or savings association agrees to pay interest on the money.

    CDs may have maturities of 91 days, 182 days, one year and two years with the rate of interest paid on each deposit representing a current market rate. Interest is calculated on an actual/actual basis, is payable monthly and credited to the state General Fund.  Section 41-14-30, Code of Alabama, as amended.


    The Treasurer may apportion TDOA among state banks giving priority to the value and importance of such deposits to the economy of the communities as indicated by its loan to deposit ratio.

    TDOA may have maturities of 91 days, 182 days, and 365 days with the rate of interest paid on each deposit corresponding to the rate of the US Treasury obligations of comparable maturity.  Interest is calculated on an actual/actual basis, is payable monthly and credited to the state General Fund.  Section 41-14-33, Code of Alabama, as amended.


    The Linked Deposit Program allows the Treasurer to deposit state funds with any state depositary which in turn funds a reduced rate loan in the full amount of the deposit to an eligible borrower.  An eligible borrower is an agricultural, emergency or small business borrower that meets the definition and criteria to participate in the program. 

    The initial linked deposit has a maturity of two years at a rate two percent below the Two-Year Constant Maturity Treasury rate and may be renewed for three additional two-year terms.  The minimum linked deposit rate is one percent.

    The program is offered at the discretion of the Treasurer.  Section 41-15-50, et al, Code of Alabama, as amended.
