1All Dividends on this Schedule are Posted and Compounded Monthly. Annual Percentage Yield (APY) is variable and subject to change without prior notice. Dividends on these accounts (except Index Checking) are calculated by using the account Average Daily Balance (ADB) and the Tier A dividend method. The ADB is computed by adding the balance in the account for each day in the month and dividing that figure by the number of days in the month. The dividend Tier A method means that the dividend rate used will be based on the account ADB and the dividend rate for that ADB. The "Dividend Rate" for that tier will be used to pay the dividend on the entire ADB. For example, if the account ADB is $5,600 for the month, the entire $5,600 will be paid a dividend at the Tier 2 rate. No dividend will be paid if the account ADB is below $200 for the month ($1 for Little Gobbler Club and Freedom Dash accounts). If the account is closed before dividends are credited, any accrued dividend will not be credited. A one-time $5 deposit is required by Credit Union Bylaws for membership. If the account is closed, the $5 will be returned. Fees may reduce earnings. For a Freedom DashTM Youth Account, upon Your 18th birthday, Your Account will automatically convert to a Regular Share Account and will be subject to all applicable rates, fees and minimum balance requirements.
