The Annual Percentage Yield (APY) 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paid on an Account based on the Dividend Rate and frequency of compounding for an annual period when dividends are not withdrawn. Dividends withdrawn from an Account prior to maturity will reduce the APY for that Account.
The Dividend Rate and APY are variable rates and are subject to change at any time by the Board of Directors or its designee.
Nature of Dividends
Dividends are paid from current income and available earnings after required reserve transfers at the end of the dividend period. The Dividend rate and Annual Percentage Yield (APY) are the prospective rates and yields that the Credit Union anticipates paying for the applicable dividend period.
Compounding & Crediting
Dividends will be compounded monthly and will be credited monthly. If you close your share account before dividends are paid, you will not receive the accrued dividends.
Accrual of Dividends on Noncash Deposits
For funds deposited to your Account during the month/quarter, dividends begin to accrue on the business day, as defined in our Funds Availability Policy, that cash and noncash items are deposited. Funds already on deposit accrue from the beginning of the calendar month/quarter.
Balance Computation Method
Dividends are calculated by the average daily balance method which applies a periodic rate to the average daily balance in the account for the period. The average daily balance is calculated by adding the balance in the account for each day of the period and dividing that figure by the number of days in the period.
The first $25.00 deposited into the Primary Share Account is not available for withdrawal and is required to maintain your membership, open other accounts, and be eligible for other services.

The minimum balance requirement to open an Account is set forth below. Please refer to our current Fee Schedule and to the minimum balance requirements to earn dividends (above) and avoid fees.
