Your interest rate and annual percentage yield may change. At our discretion, we may change the interest rate on your account daily.

COMPOUNDING AND CREDITING. Interest will be compounded monthly and will be credited to the account monthly. If you close your account before interest is credited, you will not receive the accrued interest.

MINIMUM BALANCE REQUIREMENTS. You must deposit at least $10.00 to open this account in person or $100.00 if opened online or by mail.

Please see "ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR ACCOUNT" section below for additional minimum balance requirements.

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. No transaction limitations apply to this account.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR ACCOUNT. A monthly maintenance fee will be imposed in each statement period, in accordance with the Fee Schedule. The monthly maintenance fee will be waived if you meet any one of four criteria: a) the combined ledger balances in all of your consumer deposit accounts and the outstanding balances in your consumer loan accounts, excepting mortgage loans, total at least $5,000 as of the current statement cycle date of your Star Checking account. This date can be found on the top right hand corner of page one of your monthly statements, under the heading "Statement Ending."; b) you have your payroll or monthly Social Security payment directly deposited to your account; c) you establish and maintain an automatic transfer from this account to pay a Salem Five Mortgage, excepting Home Equity products; or d) the combined ledger balances in your account and its companion Star Savings account total at least $1,500 as of the current statement cycle date of your Star Checking account.
