Rate Information. All Savings and Checking Accounts are Variable
Rate Accounts. The Current Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield
(APY) on your accounts are located at www.sfefcu.org/services/rates.html.
The APY is a
percentage rate that reflects the total amount
of dividends to
be paid on an
account based on
the dividend rate and
compounding for an
annual period. The
Dividend Rate and
Percentage Yield are based
on the last dividend
change as determined by
Board of Directors.
Nature of Dividends. Dividends are paid from current income and available
earnings after any required transfers to reserves at the end of a dividend period. The Dividend Rate and APY
are those declared as of the last dividend declaration date.
Compounding and Crediting. Dividends will be compounded and credited as described on this page. The dividend period for each account is set forth on this page. If the dividend
period is quarterly, for example, the beginning date of the first dividend period of the calendar year is
January 1, and the ending date of such dividend period is March 31. All other quarterly dividend periods
follow this same pattern of dates. If the dividend period is monthly, the beginning date of the first dividend
period of the calendar year is January 1, and the ending date of such dividend period is January 31. All other
monthly dividend periods follow this same pattern of dates.
Accrual of Dividends. Dividends will begin to accrue on deposits on the business
day you make the deposit to your account. If you close your account before accrued dividends are credited,
accrued dividends will be credited at that time.
Balance Information. The minimum balance required to open each account is set forth on this page. You must maintain a minimum of one (1) share in the Prime Savings Account. The par
value of one share is $5. For accounts using a Daily Balance method, dividends are calculated by applying a
daily periodic rate to account balances above $100 each day.
