1Rate Information. The most recently declared dividend rate and annual percentage yield are listed in the table above. The dividend rate and annual percentage yield may change every month as determined by the credit union board of directors.
Compounding and Crediting. Dividends will be compounded and paid monthly. If you close your account before dividends are paid, you will not receive the accrued dividends.
Minimum Balance Requirements. The minimum balance required to open an account and to obtain the disclosed APY are listed above.
Balance Computation Method. Dividends on Regular Share and Holiday Club are calculated by the average daily balance method which applies a periodic rate to the average daily balance in the account for the period. The average daily balance is calculated by adding the principal in the account for each day of the period and dividing that figure by the number of days in the period.
Earnings Credit Calculation: The earnings credit is derived by taking the average collected balance times the number of days in the month times the earnings credit rate divided by the number of days in the year, minus the average uncollected balance times the number of days in the month times the uncollected funds rate divided by the number of days in the year, minus any monthly fees. The earnings credit rate is based on the WOW checking account rate plus .10%. The uncollected funds rate is based on CitiGroup Prime + 2% as listed in the Wall Street journal as of the 25th of the preceding month. If the calculation result is positive, it will be posted as a dividend on the first of the following month. If the calculation result is negative, it will be posted as a fee and deducted from your account on the first day of the following month.
Accrual of Dividends. Dividends for the appropriate accounts will begin to accrue on the business day you deposit cash and/or non-cash items (e.g. checks) to your account.
