1. Unlimited withdrawals allowed on in-person transactions only. Federal regulations limit the number of withdrawals or pre-authorized, automatic transfers made to third parties, other TCU accounts, or telephone orders to cover overdrafts on your checking account to no more than six transactions per month. If these limits are exceeded in any given month, your account will be subject to an Excessive Transaction Fee of $15. Excessive, continuous violation of the transaction limits will close the money market account and the funds will be transferred to an account that allows more transactions.
2. We offer five money market account options: Flexible, Sterling, Premiere, Premiere Plus, and Jumbo. Each account has specific minimum balance requirements to open and to earn the posted dividend rate. Each day, funds in the Flexible money market account will earn dividends based on your balance. A Flexible money market account balance of less than $100 for more than 90 days will close the account and the funds will be placed in the account holder's Primary Share account.
3. With all TCU money market products except the Flexible account, the credit union will not automatically adjust your dividend rate. You must make a request and initiate the change with the credit union. Upon receipt of your signed request, your account will be converted. Higher dividend rates and balance requirements are not retroactive, but are effective from the date of conversion.
