Rate Information. The Annual Percentage Yield is a percentage rate that reflects the total amount 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 are the prospective rates and yields that the Credit Union anticipates paying for the applicable dividend period. Except as otherwise noted, the Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield for the account are variable and may change at any time at the discretion of the Credit Union.

Compounding and Crediting. Dividends will be credited monthly to your account and transferred to your Regular Savings Account. There will be no compounding of dividends in the Secured Card Savings Account. The dividend period begins on the first calendar day of each calendar month and ends on the last calendar day of each calendar month. The dividend period is monthly.

Balance Computation Method. Dividends are calculated by the average daily balance method in which dividends are computed by applying a periodic rate to the average balance in the account for each day of the period and dividing that sum by the number of days in the period.
Accrual of Dividends. Dividend will begin to accrue on cash and non-cash deposits (e.g., checks) on the business day you make the deposit to your account.
