Transaction Limitation: You may not make any deposits into your account before maturity. You may make withdrawal of dividends from your account before maturity if the certificate term is one year or more and this option is made at the time of the certificate purchase. You may not make any withdrawals of principal from your account before maturity unless withdrawal is because of the death of any owner; withdrawal is after the close of the dividend period in which the owner(s) membership was terminated under Article II, Section 5 of the bylaws; withdrawal is a result of the voluntary or involuntary liquidation of the Credit Union; the account is part of a qualified individual retirement or Keogh plan, with distribution of funds upon the participant’s disability or attainment of not less than 59 1/2 years of age. We may impose a penalty if we grant your withdrawal request.

Maturity Date: You can choose the term of maturity from any period of three (3) to sixty (60) months. You will receive a certificate of maturity notice at least ten days in advance of the maturity date of your certificate. If your instructions for renewal are not received by the Credit Union prior to the maturity date, the certificate will automatically be renewed for the same term at the prevailing annual percentage rate. You may withdraw the deposited shares without penalty for 10 calendar days after the maturity date.

Early Withdrawal Penalties: Penalties may be imposed for withdrawals before maturity. If the certificate term is less than one year, a penalty of 90 days dividends will be imposed based on the current rate of the account. If the certificate term is one year or greater, a penalty of 180 days dividends will be imposed. This may invade the principal. There are certain circumstances, such as the death or incompetence of an owner, where we may waive or reduce this penalty. See your plan disclosure if this account is part of an IRA or other tax qualified plan. If this account is part of an IRA, there may be a withdrawal fee. Consult the Fee Schedule.

Exceptions to Early Withdrawal Penalties: At our option, we may pay the account before maturity without imposing an early withdrawal penalty under the following circumstances: When an account owner dies or is determined legally incompetent by a court or other body of competent jurisdiction.

Renewal Policy: As an automatically renewable account, your account will automatically renew for another term upon maturity at the prevailing rate. You have a grace period of ten (10) days after maturity in which to withdraw funds in the new account without being charged an early withdrawal penalty. Refer to the paragraph titled “Jump-Up” Certificate Maturity Information for information about the renewal terms and rates. The “Jump-Up” option is no longer available after the maturity date of the certificate.

Nontransferable/Nonnegotiable: Your account is nontransferable and nonnegotiable. The funds in your account may not be pledged to secure any obligation of an owner, except obligations with the Credit Union.
