1Choice Checking: $25 deposit required to open account. The account must be funded within 30 calendar days. If your average daily balance is below $500, you will incur a $10 monthly maintenance fee. Dividend rates are based on the account balance and account tier. The tiers are as follows: Tier 1 daily balance of $0.01 to $4,999.99; Tier 2 daily balance of: $5,000 or more. We use the daily balance method to calculate the dividends on your account. Dividends begin to accrue no later than the business day we receive the deposit to your account.
