All Consumer Checking Accounts Include

*Qualification Information: Account transactions and activities may take one or more days to post and settle to the account and all must do so during the Monthly Statement Cycle in order to qualify for the account's rewards. The following activities do not count toward earning account rewards: ATM-processed transactions, transfers between accounts, debit card purchases processed by merchants and received by our bank as ATM transactions, non-retail payment transactions, and purchases made with debit cards not issued by our bank. Transactions bundled together by merchants and received by our institution as a single transaction count as a single transaction for the purpose of earning account rewards.

Reward Information: When the above account qualifications are met during a Monthly Statement Cycle, (1) balances below $25,000.00 receive APY of 0.15%; and balances equal to or greater than $25,000.00 earn 0.35% interest rate on the portion of the balance equal to or greater than $25,000.00, resulting in a range from 0.15% to 0.30% APY depending on the account's balance and (2) you will receive reimbursements for nationwide ATM withdrawal fees imposed by other financial institutions and incurred during the Monthly Statement Cycle in which you qualified. An ATM receipt must be presented for reimbursements of individual ATM withdrawal fees of $5.00 or higher. We reimburse ATM withdrawal fees based on estimates when the withdrawal information we receive does not identify the ATM fee. If you have not received an appropriate reimbursement, we will adjust the reimbursement amount if we receive the transaction receipt within sixty (60) calendar days of the withdrawal transaction. When the above qualifications are not met, all balances in the account earn 0.02% APY and ATM withdrawal fees are not refunded. Interest and ATM withdrawal fee reimbursements will be credited to your Premier Checking account on the last day of the current statement cycle. APY = Annual Percentage Yield. APYs accurate as of January 25, 2023. Rates and rewards are variable and may change after account is opened. Fees may reduce earnings.
