Dividends are money you earn for maintaining a balance in certain accounts. An account dividend is expressed as a percentage and calculated based on the average daily balance in the account for a month. Dividends are paid monthly or quarterly, depending on the account. The APY is the Annual Percentage Yield and represents the total actual percentage that a fixed sum in an account would earn in a year, including dividend accruals.
Leaders’ Term Share Certificate dividends are based on the term you choose. Earn 0.30% APY¹ for a 3-month term, 0.40% APY¹ for a 6-month term, 0.50% APY¹ for a 12-month term, 0.60% APY¹ for a 24-month term, 0.70% APY¹ for a 36-month term, and our maximum percentage, 0.80% APY¹, for a 48- or 60-month term.
When we say that our term-share certificates are pledged, we mean that you can neither deposit additional money or withdraw funds until the term has ended. At the end of the term, you may withdraw your funds or roll them into a new term to earn more money.
