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 day.
Limitations on Rate Changes. There are no maximum or minimum interest rate limits for this account.
COMPOUNDING AND CREDITING. Interest will be compounded monthly and will be credited to your account monthly. lf 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.
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. Regulation D Transaction Limitations. Federal regulation allows us to restrict the number of transfers or withdrawals you can make on a Money Market Account and Savings Account or to suspend enforcement of the restriction and allow you to make an unlimited number of transfers or withdrawals from these accounts. If we enforce the restriction, you understand that we will not allow more transfers or withdrawals than the maximum number specified in the Disclosures, and we may close your account, take away your ability to transfer funds, or convert the account to a checking or other transaction account if the restriction is violated. Further, certain transfers or withdrawals will count toward the transaction limit:
Transfers or Withdrawals Subject to Transaction Limitations. This transaction limitation includes transfers or withdrawals made to third party if made by: phone, fax, computer, check, debit card, ACH, bill payments, or automatic transfers. The transaction limitation also includes transfers or withdrawals made to another account that you have with us if made by: phone; fax; computer; debit card; ACH; bill payments; or automatic transfers including transfers for overdraft protection purposes.
Transfers or Withdrawals Not Subject to Transaction Limitations. There is no limit on the number of transfers or withdrawals between the accounts you have with us if made by: mail, messenger, ATM, in person, or to repay a loan that you have us. However, if we suspend enforcement of the restriction on the number of transfers or withdrawals on your Money Market Account or Savings
Account, there is no transaction limitation on transfers or withdrawals on these accounts. We may also suspend enforcement of the restriction on a temporary basis, such as for six months, and then resume enforcement after temporary suspension.
NOTE: Regulation D Transaction Limits do not apply to Teen Compass accounts.
