General Terms: APY = Annual Percentage Yield. Board = The Board of Directors of RCU. IRA Accounts are also subject to separate agreements and disclosures.


Dividends on all accounts are calculated by the daily balance method, which applies a daily periodic rate to the balance in the account each day. Dividends are earned from date of deposit to date of withdrawal (subject to the FUNDS AVAILABILITY POLICY in the Membership Account Disclosure). Savings accounts: Dividends are compounded and paid quarterly on the last day of the month. Money Market accounts: Dividends are compounded and paid monthly on the last day of the month.

Dividends are paid only out of current income and available earnings after required transfers to reserves at the end of each dividend period. Closing an account before dividends are paid will not forfeit accrued dividends. Dividend rates and APYs are projected and subject to change. Dividend rates are set by the ALCO Committee and are approved by the Board. Dividend rates can vary at the Board’s sole discretion.

Transaction Limits: You cannot make more than six non-personal withdrawals per month from Savings and Money Market Accounts. See the Membership Account Disclosure for details.
