Checking and savings account disclosure.
Except as specifically described, the following disclosures apply to all the accounts.
The Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield on your accounts are stated on the rate page. 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.
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.
Dividends will be compounded and credited as stated on the rate page. The Dividend Period for each account is also stated on the rate page. The Dividend Period begins on the first calendar day of the period and ends on the last day of the period.
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.
The minimum balance required to open each account is stated on the rate page. 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.
The Rewards Checking account is a tiered rate account based upon satisfying certain qualifications. If a primary member* meets the Rewards Checking qualifications for a particular month, the Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield for the following month will be the highest Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield shown. If you do not meet the Rewards Checking qualifications in one month, the Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield will be the lowest Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield shown. Qualifying transactions must posted to the account prior to the last day of the month. Debit & credit card purchases can take up to 3 days to post and are dependent on merchant processing times.
*At least one membership account where an individual is named as the primary member must meet all qualifications.
The qualifications for Rewards Checking enhancements include:
