Rate Information

The dividend rate and annual percentage yield may change monthly as determined by Credit Union Management. Dividends are calculated using a tiered dividend rate based on the average daily balance. Your average daily balance for the month that corresponds to the applicable account balance tier will earn the stated dividend rate and be paid on the full account balance when all Prestige Checking requirements are met. The Regular Savings second tier rate will be paid monthly on any amount over $25,000 and will be paid on all balances if Prestige Checking requirements are not met.
  

Compounding and Crediting

Dividends will be compounded monthly on the average daily balance. Dividends will be posted to your account on the last day of every month.
  

Dividend Period

The dividend period for Prestige Checking is monthly. For example, the beginning date for the first dividend period of the calendar year is January 1 and the ending date of the dividend period is January 31. Posting date of dividends is the last day of the month. All other dividend periods follow this pattern.
  

Minimum Balance Requirement

Transaction Limitations To avoid a monthly minimum activity fee, please see above.

  

Account Requirements

Prestige Checking requires that you have an active Transcend Credit Union loan or Transcend Credit Union VISA Prestige Credit Card, a Transcend Credit Union SmartCash VISA Debit Card, and have a paycheck, Social Security, retirement check, or other recurring check of $800 or more per month automatically deposited into your account. Your SmartCash VISA Debit Card must reflect a minimum of one transaction every 90 days. Your VISA Credit Card, if you have no loan with the Credit Union, must reflect a minimum of one transaction every 90 days. Repeated months of non-usage may disqualify you from having Prestige Checking and/or earning a Prestige bonus dividend.
