Truth in Savings

Checking Account

RATE INFORMATION. Please refer to our rate sheet for the interest rate and annual percentage yield (APY) on this account. Your interest rate and annual percentage yield may change.

Determination of Rate. At our discretion, we may change the interest rate on your account.

Frequency of Rate Changes. We may change the interest rate on your account every week.

Limitations on Rate Changes. There are no maximum or minimum interest rate limits for this account.

COMPOUNDING AND CREDITING. Interest will compound monthly and will be credited to your account monthly. 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 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.

PROCESSING ORDER. All ACH credit transactions are processed first. Other credit transactions such as a deposit at an ATM will be credited as they are received. Debits and checks will be processed as follows: preauthorized transactions, such as debit card transactions, then checks. Checks that come through during overnight processing are processed in check number order. Telephone transfers, ATM transactions and deposits or withdrawals done at the teller window will be processed at the time of the transaction. The processing order of these items is important because if there is not enough money in the account to pay for the items in the order they are processed in accordance with the processing order, there may be an overdraft on your account which may result in overdraft or non-sufficient funds fees or an increase in the amount of these fees.

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. NOTE: Village Checking, Village Interest Checking and eVolve Checking accounts do not have any transaction limitations.
