IOLTA Honor Roll

Banking on Justice

By participating in the IOLTA Honor Roll, financial institutions and attorneys help support the provision of critically needed legal aid to Marylanders unable to afford such services. We encourage attorneys to consider these institutions for their banking needs.

About the IOLTA Honor Roll

Rule 19-411 of the Maryland Rules ensures that financial institutions that participate in the IOLTA program pay interest rates on IOLTA deposits comparable to other similarly situated accounts. MLSC and the MSBA partnered to create the Honor Roll in 2002 to recognize those institutions who go above and beyond this standard of comparability. Honor Roll members pay a net yield of 1% or 65% or more of the federal funds target rate on IOLTA deposits, whichever is greater.

To join the IOLTA Honor Roll, financial institutions should complete the Honor Roll Enrollment Form. MLSC will provide a Community Reinvestment Act statement verifying your participation in this important program and provide other public recognition and promotion as appropriate.
