as determined by the Credit Union Board of Directors.
1. To obtain the annual percentage yield disclosed: You must maintain a minimum daily balance of $ 500.00 in your account each day to obtain the disclosed annual percentage yield. A specified dividend rate may result in a lower effective yield based upon account activity or the actual balance of the account on which dividends will be paid. No maximum or minimum percentage of change, either increase or decrease, has been set.
2. Compounding and crediting: Dividends will be compounded and credited MONTHLY. For this account type, the dividend period is MONTHLY, for example, the beginning date of the first dividend period of the calendar year is January 1 and the ending date of such dividend period is JANUARY 31. All other dividend periods follow this same pattern of dates. The dividend declaration date follows the ending date of a dividend period, and for the example is FEB. 1. If you close your regular share account before dividends are credited, you will not receive accrued dividends.
3. Minimum balance requirements: The minimum balance to open this account is the purchase of a $10.00 share in the Credit Union. You must maintain a minimum daily balance of $1,000.00 in your account to avoid a service fee. If, during any day during a MONTH, your account balance falls below the required minimum daily balance, a service fee of $1.00 for ANY AMOUNTS WITHDRAWN will be charged. MINIMUM BALANCE REQUIRED TO EARN DIVIDENDS IS $500.00.
4. Balance computation method: Dividends are calculated by the average daily balance method .The average daily balance 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 the period.
5. Accrual of dividends: Dividends will begin to accrue on the business day you deposit non-cash items (e.g., checks) to your account. Dividends begin to accrue on cash deposits on the business day funds are received.
7. Transaction limitations: The Credit Union reserves the right to require a member intending to make a withdrawal from any account, except a checking account, to give written notice of such intent not less than seven (7) days and up to sixty (60) days before such withdrawal. We may refuse to allow a withdrawal in some situations, and we will advise you accordingly: for example: (1) a dispute between account owners (unless a court has ordered the credit union to allow the withdrawal); (2) a legal garnishment or attachment is served: (3) the account secures any obligation to us; (4) required documentation has not been presented; (5) you fail to repay a credit union loan on time.
8. Nature of dividends: Dividends are paid from current income and available earnings, after required transfers to reserves at the end of a dividend period. The Board of Directors reserves the right to change the dividend rate at the end of each dividend period. Rate changes are solely at the Credit Union's discretion.
9. Bylaw Requirements: A member who fails to complete payment of one share within SIX MONTHS of his admission to membership, or within SIX MONTHS from the increase in the par value in shares, or a member who reduces his share balance below the par value of one share and does not increase the balance to at least the par value of one share within SIX MONTHS of the reduction may be terminated from membership at the end of a dividend period. [All blanks should be filled with time chosen by credit union board of directors, but must be at least 6 months.] Shares may be transferred only from one member to another, by written instrument in such form as the Credit Union may prescribe. The Credit Union reserves the right, at any time, to require members to give, in writing, not more than 60 days notice of intention to withdraw the whole or any part of the amounts so paid in by them. No member may withdraw shareholdings that are pledged as required on security on loans without the written approval of a loan officer, except to the extent that such share(s) exceed the member's total primary and contingent liability to the Credit Union. No member may withdraw any shareholdings below the amount of his/her primary or contingent liability to the Credit Union if he/she is delinquent as a borrower, or if borrowers for whom he/she is co-maker, endorser, or guarantor are delinquent, without the written approval of a loan officer.

Minors: The Credit Union may accept accounts from or on behalf of minors. We may require any account established by a minor to be a joint account with an owner who has reached the age of majority under state law and who shall be jointly and entirely liable to us for any returned item, or unpaid charges or amounts on such accounts. We may pay funds directly to the minor without regard to his or her minority. Unless a guardian or parent is an account owner with the minor, the guardian or parent shall not have any account access rights. We have no duty to inquire about the use or purpose of any transaction. We will not change the account status when the minor reaches the age of majority, unless authorized in writing by all account owners. The relationship between the Credit Union and any such minor person in connection with such account shall be in all respects the same as if the minor was of legal age. The Credit Union shall incur no liability for any transaction with respect to the account because of such minority.
ACCOUNT ACCESS: Your signature on the Account Card authorizes your account access. Title and ownership of accounts shall be as reflected in our records. Account owners shall furnish the Credit Union with specimen signatures and other written instructions and authorities, including resolutions, in a form satisfactory to the Credit Union. We will be responsible for recognizing only those signatory instructions on file in transacting business on or for an account.
Authorized Signature: We will not be liable for refusing to honor any item or instruction if we believe the signature is not genuine. We have the right to review and approve any form of power of attorney and may restrict account withdrawals or transfers. We are under no obligation to honor any power of attorney.
Accounts will not be established where 2 signatures are required.
RIGHTS OF JOINT ACCOUNT HOLDERS: Any owner is authorized and deemed to act for any other owner and may instruct us regarding transactions and other account matters. Each owner guarantees the signature of any other owner. Any owner may withdraw all funds, transfer, or pledge to us all or any part of the shares without the consent of the other owner. We reserve the right to require written consent of all owners for any change to or termination of an account. If we receive written notice of a dispute between owners or inconsistent instructions from them, we may suspend or terminate the account and require a court order or written consent from all owners to act.
All sums deposited shall be with the right of survivorship, and shall be payable to or withdrawn by either or the survivor of them. Each appoints the other attorney, with power to endorse and either cash or deposit in said joint account any checks, or other instruments payable to the order of the other or to both joint depositors. A surviving owner’s interest is subject to the Credit Union’s statutory lien for the deceased owner’s obligations, and to any security interest or pledge granted by a deceased owner, even if a surviving owner did not consent to it.

We require a social security number to open an account. Your failure to furnish a correct Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) or meet other requirements may result in backup withholding.

If you fail to provide your TIN, we will suspend opening your account.

Trust Accounts: Trust accounts are discouraged, but if accepted, a complete and full copy of the trust agreement must be provided to the Credit Union. ANY PROVISIONS OF THE TRUST MUST BE COMPLIED WITH FULLY BY THE CREDIT UNION. The individuals establishing the trust must be members. A trust account constitutes a solemn fiduciary relationship that is carefully scrutinized by the courts, thus discouraged. IRA Trust accounts are not acceptable at this time.
Final Payment: All items, transfers, credits, or deposits credited to your account are provisional until we receive final payment.
