National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund & Massachusetts Share Insurance Corporation (MSIC)
Member accounts in this credit union are federally insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund with supplemental coverage provided by MSIC.
We reserve the right to, at any time, require not less than seven days notice in writing before each withdrawal from an interest-bearing account other than a time deposit, or from any other savings account as defined by Regulation D. During any month, you may not make more than six withdrawals or transfers to another credit union account of yours or to a third party by means of a preauthorized or automatic transfer, telephonic order or instruction, or similar order to a third party. If you exceed the transfer limitations set forth above, your account will be subject to closure by the credit union.
- For this account type, the dividend period is monthly, 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 January 31. All other dividend periods follow this same pattern of dates. The dividend declaration date follows the ending date of a dividend period, and for the example above is February 1.
- Daily Balance Computation Method – Dividends are calculated by the daily balance method which applies a daily periodic rate to the balance in the account each day.
- Accrual of Dividends – Dividends will begin to accrue on the business day you deposit cash or non-cash items (for example, checks) into your account.
- The annual percentage yield is based on the assumption that dividends will remain in the account until maturity and that funds will remain on deposit for one year.
- The dividend rate and annual percentage yield may change at any time, as determined by the credit union board of directors.

You can plan the use of your funds, knowing that they earn an attractive, highly competitive rate of interest.
All Term Share Certificates of Deposit are insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUA) with supplemental coverage provided by the Massachusetts Share Insurance Corporation (MSIC).
Interest on all Term Share Certificates is compounded daily and posted monthly.
Automatically Renewable Account
- This account will automatically renew at maturity. You may prevent renewal if you withdraw the funds in the account at maturity (or within the grace period mentioned below, if any) or we receive written notice from you within the grace period mentioned below, if any. If you prevent renewal, your funds will be placed in a dividend-bearing account.
- Each renewal term will be the same as the original term, beginning on the maturity date. The dividend rate will be the same we offer on new Term Share Certificate accounts on the maturity date which have the same term, minimum balance (if any) and other features as the original term share account.
- You will have a grace period of ten calendar days after maturity to withdraw the funds without being charged an early withdrawal penalty.
