A checking, savings or money market account is considered Dormant/Inactive if the account has had no deposit or withdrawal activity (other than posting interest) for a period of one year. After one year if the account is still dormant/inactive a financial institution will attempt to notify Members of the inactivity through various channels. After a year of inactivity in the savings account you will start seeing a $5.00 Inactivity fee.

To avoid inactivity fees in future, please ensure you have at least one transaction posted to your account either every six months or once annually.

For more information regarding Dormant Accounts, please reach out to us at (888) 255- 3637 or via live chat and our Contact Center agents will be happy to assist you.

A penalty may be imposed for withdrawals before the maturity of a certificate account.

  • If your account has an original maturity of 12 months or less, the penalty we may impose will equal 90 days dividends on the amount withdrawn subject to penalty.
  • If your account has an original maturity of more than 12 months, the penalty we may impose will equal 180 days dividends on the amount withdrawn subject to penalty.

In certain circumstances such as the death or incompetence of an owner of this account, the law permits, or in some cases requires, the waiver of the early withdrawal penalty. Other exceptions may also apply, for example, if this is part of a required mandatory distribution from an IRA or other tax-deferred savings plan.

Withdrawal of Dividends Prior to Maturity
The annual percentage yield is based on an assumption that dividends will remain in the account until maturity. A withdrawal will reduce earnings.
