2IRA Money Market Account: There is no minimum balance requirement to open this account. To earn dividends, you must maintain a minimum daily balance of $100; no interest is paid on balances below $99.99. Dividend rates are based on the account balance and account tier. The tiers are as follows: Tier 1 daily balance up to $99.99, Tier 2 daily balance $100.00-$4,999.99; Tier 3 daily balance $5,000.00-$24,999.99; Tier 4 daily balance $25,000.00 or more. We use the daily balance method to calculate the dividend on your account. Accounts will be opened, and interest will accrue as of the date funding is received; funding must be received within 30 calendar days of account opening. Dividends begin to accrue no later than the business day we receive the deposit to your account. Rates earned are based on balances, calculated daily, and compounded to the account quarterly. During any calendar month, you may not exceed six (6) withdrawals or transfers to your other Credit Union accounts or to a third party by means of an Online Banking/Mobile Banking transfer or other pre-authorized electronic funds transfer, automatic transfer, overdraft protection transfer, over the phone request, request transmitted via facsimile machine, or transfer initiated through our audio response service. Fees may reduce earnings. Full details of this Account Disclosure.
