Terms and Fees Disclosure

Except as specifically described, the following disclosures apply to all the accounts.

  1. Rate Information

    The Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield on your accounts are stated on the reverse side. The Annual Percentage Yield is the percentage rate that reflects the total of dividends to be paid on an account based on the dividend rate and frequency of compounding for an annual period. The Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield may change monthly as determined by the Credit Union Board of Directors.

  2. Nature of Dividends

    Dividends are paid from current income and available earnings after required transfers to reserves at the end of the dividend period. The Dividend Rate and APY are the prospective rates and yields that the Credit Union anticipates paying for the applicable dividend period.

  3. Compounding and Crediting

    Dividends will be compounded and credited as stated on the reverse side. The Dividend Period for each account is also stated on the reverse side. The Dividend Period begins on the first calendar day of the period and ends on the last day of the period.

  4. Accrual of Dividends

    Dividends will begin to accrue on non-cash (e.g. checks) and cash deposits on the business day you make the deposit to your account. If you close your account before accrued dividends are paid, you will not receive the accrued dividends.

  5. Balance Information

    The minimum balance required to open each account is stated on the reverse side. Dividends are calculated by the daily balance method which applies a daily periodic rate to the balance in the account each day. For money market and special savings accounts there is a minimum daily balance requirement to earn dividends. If you do not meet these daily balance requirements, your account may not earn dividends or be subject to a service fee, if applicable.

  6. Free Checking

    The Free Checking Account offers full checking features, earns interest, and has no monthly service fee. Free Checking account will automatically receive the benefits of the Rewards Checking account, starting on the first day of each month if the previous monthly account activity meets the Rewards Checking requirements (see H for more details).

  7. **Student Checking

  8. *Rewards Checking Qualification & Enhancements
