Nature of Dividends and Relation to APY 
Except in the case of term share accounts (where the dividend rate is fixed for the term of the account certificate), dividends may be paid only from current income and accumulated earnings, after required transfers to reserves at the end of each dividend period. The dividend rate and annual percentage yield applicable to an account may therefore change from time to time as determined by the Credit Union's Board of Directors in its discretion. The dividend period of the Credit Union is [ _Monthly_], beginning on the first day of such period and ending on the last day of the period.

As used in these disclosures, (i) "dividend rate" means the dividends paid (or expected to be paid) on an account, without giving effect to the compounding of previously earned dividends, shown as an annual figure and expressed as a percentage of the account balance; and (ii) "annual percentage yield" or "APY" means a percentage rate reflecting the total amount of dividends expected to be earned in a year on an account, based on the dividend rate and the frequency of compounding accrued dividends.

All disclosures concerning the APY applicable to an account (other than term share accounts) assume that the dividend rate disclosed remains in effect for one year and that dividends are not withdrawn.

Frequency of Compounding Dividends and the Method of Determining the Balance on Which Deividends are Paid
Unless otherwise stated in an enclosed disclosure card related to a specific type of account, dividends are compounded [ _Monthly_] and credited on balances of $___100.00__ or more based on the [__Average____] daily balance in your account.

You can compute the dividends earned on your account each day by multiplying the then current simple annual dividend rate times the {__Average Daily__] balance in your account at the end of each day, divided by 365 or 366 days, as applicable. The amount of dividends you earn for each day will be added to your principal balance [daily/monthly/etc.].

If you withdraw funds from your account before dividends are paid, you will receive dividends accrued on the funds prior to withdrawal, but such dividends will not be credited to your account until the next dividend declaration date.

If you close your account prior to the dividend declaration date:

You will not receive any dividends accrued prior to the date the account is closed.
Different rules apply to early withdrawals from a term share account and are described in the separate disclosure card applicable to term share accounts enclosed with this page or otherwise available from the Credit Union.

Minimum Balance Requirements
Unless otherwise stated in an enclosed disclosure card related to a specific type of account, in order for your account to earn dividends [for a day, you must have an actual balance of at least $_N/A___ that day. If your actual account balance falls below $_N/A___ that day, you will not earn any dividends for that day.] [for a dividend period, you must maintain an average daily balance of at least $__100.00__ during that period. If your average daily balance falls below $___100.00___ for that dividend period, you will not earn any dividends during that dividend period].

In order to earn the annual percentage yield disclosed elsewhere for a particular account, you must meet the minimum balance requirement applicable to that account at all times.
