*APY denotes Annual Percentage Yield

 

 

*NCUA: National Credit Union Administration. PSECU savings accounts are federally insured by the NCUA up to $250,000. That’s the maximum insurable amount allowed by law. In addition to the $250,000 of insurance provided on your individual account or combination of individual accounts, you are also insured up to $250,000 for any combination of accounts (including certificates) you own jointly with other individuals.

**Dividends (which you may call interest): Based on day of deposit to day of withdrawal. Dividends are calculated on actual daily balances. If your daily account balance falls below $500, you won’t earn dividends until your daily balance again reaches $500. Dividend rates are declared weekly, compounded daily, and paid monthly into Money Market Shares.

Payment of dividends is based on the available current and undivided earnings of PSECU. The Annual Percentage Yield (APY) for a deposit of one year or less is based on the assumption that both the deposit and dividends remain on deposit for a full year. A withdrawal will reduce earnings. Regulations prohibit dividends in excess of PSECU’s available earnings.

***Money Market Transaction Limits: You can make a maximum of six (6) withdrawals or transfers per month from Money Market Savings to another PSECU account or to a third party. Up to three (3) of the six (6) transfers may be made by check, draft, debit card, electronic payment, or similar order to a third party. If you exceed these transfer limitations, we may have to close your account.

****If you use an out-of-network ATM and get charged, we'll rebate fees up to $20 per month with Direct Deposit, and up to $8 per month without.

Important: When using debit (point-of-sale) transactions with PSECU Visa debit card, you must have available funds in your checking account or your transaction will be declined. Overdraft Protection Transfer Service does not apply to debit transactions. Loan options are treated as cash advances and are subject to those rates and accrue interest immediately. If you did not choose an option when you set up your account, PSECU will automatically set up overdraft transfers from your Regular Shares.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Information sharing was lacking during sign-up The people who signed us up did not provide a copy of the form or information submitted. They did not share with us the information that would be required if/when we reached out to the credit union. They also neglected to inform us that there were no local branches in and around the college!
