4 Rates and APY effective as of 8/21/14. This is a variable rate account, your interest rate and APY may change at any time, without prior notice. The rate is set by the Bank and the calculation used is FDIC Tiering Method B. (Under this method, an institution pays the stated interest rate only on that portion of the balance within the specified tier.) An interest rate of 0.15% will be paid only for that portion of your daily balance that is greater than $0.00 but less than $5,000.00. The annual percentage yield for this tier is 0.15%. An interest rate of 0.43% will be paid only for that portion of your daily balance that is greater than or equal to $5,000.00 but less than $50,000.00. The annual percentage yield for this tier will range from 0.15% to 0.40%, depending on the balance in the account. An interest rate of 0.05% will be paid only for that portion of your daily balance that is greater than or equal to $50,000.00. The annual percentage yield for this tier will range from 0.40% to 0.07%, depending on the balance in the account (the Bank assumes a maximum amount of $1,000,000.00 for the purposes of computing the annual percentage yield for the high end of the third tier).
Balance Computation Method: We use the daily balance method (365/365; 366/366) to calculate the interest in your account. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day. Accrual of Interest: The accrual begins no later than the business day we receive credit for the deposit of non-cash items (for example, checks). Interest compounds monthly and is credited to your account on the monthly statement cycle date. If the account is closed before interest is credited, you will not receive the accrued interest for that period.
