Truth In Savings Disclosure

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

Rate Information 

The dividend rate and Annual Percentage Yield on your accounts as of the last Dividend Declaration Date are stated on your statement. The total amount of dividends to be paid on an account is based on the dividend rate and the frequency of compounding for a 365-day period of the term of the account. The Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield may change monthly as determined by the Credit Union's Board of Directors. 

Nature of Dividends 

Dividends are paid from current income and available earnings after required transfers to reserves at the end of the dividend period. 

Dividend Compounding and Crediting 

Dividends will be compounded and credited as stated in your Rate and Fee Schedule. The dividend period for each account is also stated in your Rate and Fee Schedule. The dividend period begins on the first calendar day of each month and ends on the last calendar day of each month. 

Accrual of Dividends 

Dividends will begin to accrue on cash deposits and non-cash deposits (ex. checks) on the business day the Credit Union receives provisional credit. If you close your account before accrued dividends are credited, accrued dividends may not be paid on all accounts on the day the account is closed. 

Balance Information 

The minimum balance required to open each account is stated in your Rate and Fee Schedule. Dividends and minimum balances are also calculated using the Average Daily Balance Method. The Average Daily Balance Method is determined by adding the full amount of principal in the account for each day of the period and dividing that figure by the number of days in that period.

If your balance falls below $100, no dividends will be paid for that dividend period.

Account Limitations 

Account limitations for each account are specified on your Rate and Fee Schedule. For a share savings account in which transfer limitations apply, no more than six (6) pre-authorized, automatic or telephone transfers may be made from these accounts to another of yours or to a third party in any month, and no more than three (3) of these six (6) transfers may be made by check, draft or debit card to a third party. If you exceed these limitations, your account may be subject to a fee, may be denied additional transfer or be closed.
