Interest Information

Interest Rate and APY If your daily balance is $5,000 or more, the interest rate paid on the entire collected balance in your account will be 0.01%, with an annual percentage yield of 0.01%. The interest rate and annual percentage yield may change at any time at our discretion. Fees could reduce earnings on the account. Rates effective 09/24/2021.
How the Interest Rate is Calculated We use the daily balance method to calculate the interest on your account. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the collected balance in the account each day.
How Interest is Compounded Interest will be compounded and credited to the account monthly. If you close your account before the interest is credited, you will receive the accrued interest.
When Interest Begins to Accrue Interest begins to accrue no later than the business day we receive credit for the deposit of non-cash items (for example, checks).

Notice regarding ATM fee by others - If you use an automated teller machine that is not operated by us, you may be charged a fee by the operator of the machine and/or an automated transfer network and you may be charged a fee for a balance inquiry even if you do not complete a funds transfer ​

Overdraft Fees

Overdrafts created by check, in-person withdrawal, ATM withdrawal or other electronic means $35 for each item presented for payment we pay that overdraws your account by:
  • more than $5 under our standard overdraft practices.
  • more than $100 if your account is eligible for and you have not opted out of our standard overdraft practices and have direct deposits posted to your account totaling at least $500 within the past 33 days prior to the overdraft. Direct deposits are an electronic payment method that uses the ACH network to move money between banks and deposit funds electronically into a bank account rather than through a physical, paper check. The most common types of ACH direct deposits include payroll, government benefits and tax refunds. Direct deposits do not include internal bank transfers or digital deposits.
There is a maximum overdraft fee of $175 per day.
Non-sufficient Funds $35 per item - If we determine, in our sole discretion based on information provided when the withdrawal or debit is presented to us for payment, that the Item is being represented for payment (meaning it was previously presented for payment and returned unpaid), we will not charge you an additional fee if your Current Balance is less than the amount needed to pay the Item and we return it due to non-sufficient funds. However, if we do not determine that the withdrawal or debit is a represented Item and we return it due to non-sufficient funds or we pay the Item that results in an overdraft, you will be charged the corresponding fee.
