**Annual Percentage Yield (APY). For Index Checking, the dividend rate used will be based on the account ADB and the dividend rate applicable for only that ADB tier. For example, if the account ADB is $150,000 for the month, the first $100,000 will be paid a dividend at the Tier 1 rate and the second $50,000 will be paid a dividend at the Tier 2 rate. For Index checking, if the average daily balance (ADB) falls below $25,000 or if you do not make ten (10) or more purchases using your Credit Union Debit Card that post to your Index Checking Account each calendar month (excludes ATM transactions), the Dividend Rate and terms for Optimum Checking will apply. A $25,000 minimum balance is required for the Index Checking to avoid a fee and obtain the stated APY.
