Share Accounts

Rate Information: The Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield on your accounts are attached. The Annual Percentage Yield is a percentage rate that reflects the total amount of dividend rate and frequency of compounding for an annual period. The Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield may change monthly as determined by the University of Virginia Community Credit Union’s Board of Directors.

Nature of Dividends: Dividends are paid from current income and available earnings after required transfers to reserves at the end of the dividend period. The Dividend Rate and APY are the prospective rates and yields that the credit union anticipates paying for the applicable dividend period.

Compounding and Crediting: Dividends will be compounded and credited as set forth in the Rate and Fee Schedule. The Dividend Period for each account begins on the first calendar day of the period and ends on the last calendar day of the period.

Accrual of Dividends: Dividends accrue on the business day that you deposit items, including noncash items (e.g. checks) to your account. Dividends will be calculated using the daily balance method, which is an application of a daily periodic rate to the full amount of principal in the account each day. Please see accompanying information on availability of funds.

Balance Information: The minimum balance required to open each account is set forth in the Rate and Fee Schedule. For accounts using a daily balance method, dividends are calculated by applying a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day.

Account Limitations: The account limitations for each account are set forth in the Rate & Fee Schedule. For a Share Savings account in which transfer limitations apply, no more than six (6) preauthorized, automatic, or telephone transfers may be made from these accounts to another account of yours or to a third party in any month. For Share Savings accounts, five (5) withdrawals are allowed per month without an imposed fee (see reverse for Fee Schedule). For Christmas Club accounts, two (2) withdrawals are allowed (see Fee Schedule). A third withdrawal will close a Christmas Club account. For IRA accounts, a 90 day notice is required for withdrawals.

Money Market Investment Accounts

Rate and Fee Information: The Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield (APY) on your accounts are attached. The APY is a percentage rate that reflects the total amount of dividend rate and frequency of compounding for an annual period. The Dividend Rate and APY are variable and are subject to change at any time. For any fees or charges associated with your Money Market Investment account please refer to the fee schedule.

Nature of Dividends: Dividends are paid from current income and available earnings after required transfers to reserves at the end of the dividend period. The Dividend Rate and APY are the prospective rates and yields that the credit union anticipates paying for the applicable dividend period.

Compounding and Crediting: Dividends will be compounded and credited on a monthly basis. The Dividend Period for this account begins on the first calendar day of the period and ends on the last calendar day of the period.

Accrual of Dividends: Dividends begin to accrue on the day that you deposit items, including non-cash items such as checks, to your account. Dividends will be calculated using the daily balance method, which is an application of a daily periodic rate to the full amount of principal in the account each day. Dividends only accrue daily on account balances of $2,500 or greater.

Balance Information: The minimum balance required to open a Money Market Investment account is $2,500. Upon opening a money market investment account you are required to maintain this minimum balance to accrue daily dividends. In addition, an account, which continuously remains under this $2,500 minimum for some time, will be subject to closure by the credit union and the funds will be placed into a regular share account.

Transfers and Withdrawals: The minimum amount that may be withdrawn is $100 per transaction. Federal regulations stipulate that no more than six pre-authorized, automatic, or telephonic transactions may be made from this account to another account of yours or to that of a third party in any given month. Of these six transactions, up to three may be made by check or draft to a third party. If you exceed the transfer limitations set forth above in any statement period your account will be subject to a fee and may be closed by the credit union with the funds being placed into a regular share account.

Other Terms and Conditions: Shares in your Money Market Investment account may not be pledged as collateral on any loan or used for commercial or business purposes. The use of the Money Market Investment account may be subject to other terms, conditions, or requirements that the credit union establishes from time to time.

Additional Disclosures for Certificate Accounts

Rate Information: The Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield on your accounts are attached. The Annual Percentage Yield is a percentage rate that reflects the total amount of dividends to be paid on an account based on the dividend rate and frequency of compounding for an annual period. For Certificate accounts, the Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield are fixed and will be in effect for the term of the account. The Annual Percentage Yield is based on an assumption that dividends will remain on deposit until maturity. A withdrawal will reduce earnings.

Transaction Limitations: After your account is opened, you may request a withdrawal of funds from your account in any amount as indicated in the Rates & Fees Schedule.

Maturity: Your account will mature within the term or at the maturity date set forth above or the maturity date set forth on your Account Receipt or Renewal Notice. At maturity, funds will automatically be renewed under the original account terms and conditions and at the new rate.

Renewal Policy: Your account is an automatically renewable account unless indicated upon request before the maturity date.

Grace Period: After maturity, your account provides a grace period of seven days within which you may withdraw or transfer account funds without penalty.

Withdrawal Penalties

Share and Checking Account: See Fee Schedule below.

Certificate Accounts: We may impose a penalty if you withdraw any of the principal before the maturity date, or the renewal date, if this is a renewal account. The penalty for early withdrawal is as follows: 45 day dividend loss if the maturity term is 3 months, 90 day dividend loss if the maturity term is one year or less, 180 day dividend loss if the maturity term is more than one year.

How the penalty works: it is calculated as a forfeiture of part of the dividends that would have been or would be earned on the account. It applies whether or not the dividends have been earned. If the account has not yet earned enough dividends or if the dividend has already been paid, the penalty will be deducted from the principal.

Exception to early withdrawal penalties: at our option, we may pay the account before maturity without imposing an early withdrawal penalty when an account owner dies or is determined legally incompetent by a court or other body of competent jurisdiction.

Nontransferable/Nonnegotiable. Your account is nontransferable and nonnegotiable. The funds in your account may not be pledged to secure any obligation of an owner, except obligations with the credit union.

IRA Accounts: When a 90 day notice is not given, a withdrawal penalty of 90 days dividend earnings will apply. Exceptions to withdrawal penalties include: (1) when an account owner dies or is determined legally incompetent by a court or other body of jurisdiction; (2) any portion which is paid within seven days after establishment; (3) where the account owner attains age 59-1/2 or becomes disabled; or (4) divorce.
