* Monthly Credits will not exceed Monthly Maintenance Charge.

** You must maintain the minimum balance each day in your account to obtain the disclosed APY. Interest rate and annual percentage yield may change at any time. Interest will be compounded every month and credited every month. We use the daily balance method to calculate interest on your accounts. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day. Interest begins to accrue on the business day you deposit noncash items (for example, checks).
