Minimum Balance Requirements: You must deposit $10.00 to open this account.

Processing Order: Please see our Consumer Banking Services Agreement regarding Processing Order. The processing order of these items is important because if there is not enough money in the account to pay for the items in the order they are processed in accordance with the processing order, there may be an overdraft on your account which may result in overdraft or non-sufficient funds fees or an increase in the amount of these fees.

Balance Computation Method: We use the daily balance method to calculate interest on your account. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day.

Accrual on Noncash Deposits: Interest begins to accrue no later than the business day we receive credit for the deposit of noncash items (for example, checks).

Transaction Limitations: You will be permitted to make no more than 6 combined pre-authorized, automatic or telephone transfers per statement period from your account to another of your Salem Five deposit accounts or to third parties. If you exceed these restrictions, we may assess an excess debit fee and convert your account to a transaction account.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR ACCOUNT: Beginning on your 18th birthday, Salem Five will convert your account to a Smart Student Saver Account. Salem Five will provide you advance notice of this change and an account disclosure for the Smart Student Saver Account.
