1Early Withdrawal Penalty:
You cannot withdraw any principal from this account before a maturity date without our consent and we will charge a penalty. We can only consent to an early withdrawal at the time you request it.
For an account with a term of 31 days or less, the penalty will be the greatest of:
- all of the dividends earned on the amount withdrawn from the most recent date of deposit or last renewal,
- all the dividends that could have been earned on the amount withdrawn during a period equal to one-half of the maturity period,
- seven day’s dividends on the amount withdrawn.
For an account with an original term of more than 31 days, and up to and including one year, the penalty will be one month’s dividends on the amount withdrawn.
For an account with an original term of more than one year, the penalty will be three month’s dividends on the amount withdrawn.
We will use the nominal (simple interest) dividend rate in effect to calculate the penalty. We will charge the penalty first against any dividends remaining in the account, and any excess will be deducted from the amount you withdraw.
How The Penalty Works:
The penalty is calculated as a forfeiture of part of the dividends that have been or would be earned on the account. It applies whether or not the dividends have been earned. In other words, if the account has not yet earned enough dividends or of the dividends has already been paid, the penalty will be deducted from the principal balance.
The renewal Policy for your account is stated on the individual share certificate you purchase. For share certificates unless otherwise stated, your account will automatically renew for the same term, and at the then prevailing rate for that certificate type and term. You will have a grace period of ten (10) days after maturity in which to make changes.
