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 the interest on your account.  This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day.

Transaction Limitations: You will be permitted to make no more than 6 combined pre-authorized, automatic or telephone transfers per calendar month from your Star Money Market 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. There are no limits on the number of transfers or withdrawals that you may make in person at any of our branches or at an ATM. There will be no check access with this account.

Fees and Charges: If you have arranged the Overdraft Deposit Sweep feature on your Star Checking Account or Gold Star Checking Account, you will be assessed a fee for each automatic transfer to pay an overdraft item on your checking account. Please refer to our Fee Schedule for information about fees and charges.
