Tiered Dividends and Yields

With Money Market Savings, a low monthly fee of $7 is waived when you maintain a balance of $1,000 or more. In addition to a great annual percentage yield (APY), Money Market Savings makes it easy to earn higher dividends as your balance grows. Dividends and APY are paid monthly on any daily balance of $500 or more.

Note: Tiered dividends are paid on balances of $500 or more. Balances below $500 earn no APY or dividends, but do not keep you from earning them at any time your balance is above $500 in a statement period. Dividends are calculated using the daily balance method. Your balance tier determines the daily dividend rate and annual percentage yield on the daily account balance. The rate is variable, and may change at any time after the account is opened. Fees could reduce dividend earnings.

Similar to deposit insurance coverage offered by the FDIC for banks, the NCUA operates the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) to protect accounts at federally insured credit unions.
