Compounding and Crediting

  • Interest for the account will be compounded and credited on a Calendar Quarter Basis and available the last business day of the quarter.

Certificate TermBalance
6 month$2,500
12 to 60 month (12 month increments)$1,000

Balance Computation Method

  • We use the Daily Balance Method (Day of Deposit to Day of Withdrawal) to calculate interest on your account. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principle in the account each day.

When Interest Begins to Accrue

  • Interest begins to accrue on the business day you make a deposit with cash or non-cash items (for example, checks).


  • A deposited check that has been returned unpaid may be assessed a fee of $25.00 against your account.

Early Withdrawal Penalties

  • A penalty may be imposed on any withdrawal of principal from any certificate accounts prior to maturity date in an amount equal to one month (if the maturity of the account is less than one year) or three months (if the maturity of the account is one year or greater) earnings, whether earned or not, on the amount withdrawn at the interest rate being paid on the account, regardless of the length of time the fund withdrawn have remained in the account.

Withdrawal of Interest Prior to Maturity

  • The annual percentage yield assumes interest will remain on deposit one year. A withdrawal will reduce earnings.

Renewal Policies

  • Certificate accounts will renew automatically at maturity for the current term of the certificate, unless you advise otherwise.
