Is your IOLTA account doing all it can?

Where you bank matters! Things like interest rates and service fees can make a big difference in the funding generated for your local IOLTA program. By selecting a financial institution that waives fees and offers favorable rates on IOLTA accounts, you can directly impact the amount of interest earned for legal aid programs in your state. Many IOLTA programs do the work for you by identifying these preferred financial institutions on their website. Find the link to your jurisdiction’s IOLTA program in our Program Directory for more information.

Recent IOLTA Rule Changes

On April 14, 2015, the Supreme Court of Georgia entered an order adopting IOLTA interest rate comparability, effective January 1, 2016. Georgia will be the 35th U.S. jurisdiction to implement interest rate comparability, which requires that all lawyers hold IOLTA accounts only in financial institutions that pay those accounts the highest interest rate or dividend generally available to other customers of the institution when IOLTA accounts meet the same minimum balance or other qualifications.
