Nature of Dividends

Rates are subject to change as determined by the board of directors. Dividends are paid from current income and available earnings after required transfers to reserves at the end of a dividend period. The Credit Union anticipates paying the dividend rates on the table above. The APY (Annual Percentage Yield) is a projected rate that takes into consideration the effect monthly compounding has on the dividend rate.

Compounding and Crediting

Dividends on the accounts listed above will be compounded monthly. The dividend period will be the first calendar day of each month to the last calendar day of each month. Dividends are calculated on the last day of each month and will be credited to your account on the last day of the month.

Balance Computation Method

The dividends are calculated by the daily balance method to calculate dividends, which applies a daily periodic rate to the balance in the account each day.

Dividend Accrual

Dividends begin to accrue on the day of your cash or non-cash deposit(s). If you close an account, dividends will be paid as of that date.

Minimum Balance Requirements

Credit Union’s minimum balance requirements are disclosed in the table above. ** Minimum balance for Education I.R.A. Certificates is $500.

Account Limitations

Early withdrawal penalty is equal to 90 days dividend. You may not add to a certificate once it is opened. You may only make additions after maturity and during the 14-day grace period. You may not make withdrawals of principals from this account. You may only withdraw dividends, if you elected to have dividends automatically transferred to a disbursement account each month in lieu of compounding, the APY will be equal to the stated dividend rate.

Renewal/Maturity

The Credit Union will give the owners a minimum of 14 days’ notice prior to maturity. The certificate will automatically renewed at maturity, unless owner(s) elected to have all funds transfer to the regular share account or pay funds directly to the owner(s). The other account features will remain the same.
