Truth in Savings
Individual Retirement Account/Certificate of Deposit
RATE INFORMATION. Please refer to our rate sheet for the interest rate and annual percentage yield (APY) on this account. You will be paid this interest rate until maturity. 91-day Certificates of Deposit earn simple interest.
COMPOUNDING AND CREDITING. Interest will be compounded monthly and will be credited to your account monthly. The annual percentage yield assumes interest will remain on deposit until maturity. A withdrawal will reduce earnings. If interest is credited to another account or paid to you by check, this may reduce earnings and may negate the effect of interest compounding. If you close your account before interest is credited, you will not receive the accrued interest.
MINIMUM BALANCE REQUIREMENTS. Please refer to our rate sheet for the minimum balance required to open this account as well as the minimum daily balance required to obtain the disclosed annual percentage yield. You will earn interest for every day during the period that your account equals or exceeds the minimum daily balance requirement.
DORMANT/INACTIVE ACCOUNT INFORMATION. A dormancy fee may be charged to your account when your account has been inactive for 6 months. You understand that your account balance may be escheated to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts after 3 years of inactivity. If your account is escheated it may be subject to an escheatment fee. Please see the Bank’s Schedule of Fees for applicable charges.
BALANCE COMPUTATION METHOD. We use the daily balance method to calculate interest on your account. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day. ACCRUAL ON NONCASH DEPOSITS. Interest begins to accrue on the business day you deposit noncash items (for example, checks).
TRANSACTION LIMITATIONS. You may not make deposits into or withdrawals from your account until the maturity date. Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are subject to limitations and/or penalties imposed by the Internal Revenue Service. Please see your IRA Agreement or your tax advisor for additional information.
MATURITY DATE. Your account will mature .
EARLY WITHDRAWAL PROVISIONS. A penalty will be charged if we permit you to withdraw your deposit before the maturity date. The amount of the penalty, based on the principal to be withdrawn, will be determined as follows:
- For certificates of deposit with original terms less than and including 1 year, the penalty will be the equivalent of 90 days interest.
- For certificates of deposit with original terms greater than 1 year, the penalty will be the equivalent of 180 days interest.
- If you are under the age of 59 1/2, you will also be charged a penalty tax by the Internal Revenue Service.
We will permit a withdrawal from your certificate of deposit or IRA by your legal representative without imposition of a penalty subsequent to your death, or a declaration by a court of your incompetency.
RENEWAL POLICIES. Your account will automatically renew at maturity. You will have a grace period of 9 calendar days after the maturity date to withdraw the funds in the account without being charged an early withdrawal penalty.
At the close of the grace period, if an account with the same term is being offered this account will automatically be renewed for the same period, at the rate in effect at that time, unless you inform an otherwise during the grace period.
If a certificate of deposit with the same term is not being offered at maturity, and we have not received instructions from you, this account will automatically be renewed for a like term at the rate in effect at the close of the grace period.
