Balances above $50,000 will earn a different rate as posted. For months in which the minimum deposit requirement is not fulfilled, the Regular savings rate will be paid. Rates are subject to change without notice. An allowance of four withdrawals are permitted each calendar year, any additional withdrawals will result in a $25 excessive withdrawal fee which may reduce earnings.
