FAQs: Checking and Savings Accounts

In order to qualify for monthly dividends from the Premier Interest Checking Account, be sure you’ve met the following criteria: 1) You’ve signed up for eStatements, 2) You’ve set up direct deposit in any amount into any account within your membership, and 3) You’ve made at least 25 debit card (non-ATM) transactions that have posted and settled to your account within the calendar month.

If you don’t meet the criteria one month don’t worry! You’ll still earn 0.05% APY on your average daily balance over $2,500. The following month, you’ll be eligible again to qualify for the 4.00% APY. With the Premier Interest Checking Account there are never any penalty fees or minimum balances to maintain for not meeting account dividend requirements.
