Dividends are paid on entire balance for each day a $25,000 balance is maintained. Dividends are posted at the end of each calendar month. Paid dividends remaining in the account will earn dividends at the same rate and on the same terms. Dividends compound daily and are based on a 365-day year. Accrued dividends not yet posted will be forfeited if account is closed. The minimum balance required to maintain current status is $0.01. You can make a maximum of one no charge withdrawal from the account each calendar month. A fee of $25.00 will be automatically assessed for each additional withdrawal during the month.

Rates may change after the account is opened and are subject to change weekly. Refer to DCU's Truth-In-Savings Disclosure and Account Agreements and Schedule of Fees and Service Charges.

*Rate may change after the account is opened and is subject to change weekly. Funds earn dividends from the first business day of deposit and are compounded daily and posted monthly. Accrued dividends are forfeited if account is closed prior to monthly dividend posting. Fees or other conditions may reduce earnings on these accounts. Refer to DCU's Truth-in-Savings Disclosures and Account Agreements, Ltd Savings Account Application and Disclosure, and Schedule of Fees and Service Charges.

Annual Percentage Yield (APY) is a figure calculated using a federally-mandated formula. It's designed to help you compare the return you'll get in a uniform way between the certificate, savings, and money market accounts offered at various institutions. It tells you at what percentage your money will grow in one year at the same dividend rate – including the effects of compounding. For example, the APY on a 6-Month Certificate would be what you earned at the end of a year if you renewed your certificate once, did not add to or subtract from the balance along the way, nor withdrew any dividends.
