  1. Rate Information. The available Interest Rates and Annual Percentage Yields on your accounts are set forth above. The Annual Percentage Yield is a percentage rate that reflects the total amount of interest to be paid on an account based on the Interest Rate and frequency of compounding for an annual period. The Interest Rate and Annual Percentage Yield are fixed and will be in effect for the term of the Account. The Annual Percentage Yield is based on an assumption that interest will remain on deposit until maturity. A withdrawal of interest will reduce earnings. Rates are accurate as of 11/16/22 and may change at any time.
  2. Balance Information. The minimum balance is set forth above . Interest is calculated by the daily balance method that applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day.
  3. Accrual of Interest. Interest begins to accrue on cash and noncash (i.e. checks) deposits on the business day you make the deposit to your account. Fees may reduce earnings.
  4. Transaction Limitations.

In other words, if the account has not yet earned enough interest or if the interest has already been paid, the penalty will be deducted from the principal.
