General Checking and Savings Account Features
2 ATM Fee refunds: We will only issue ATM Fee refunds to customers in Harvest Rewards Checking, who meet the qualification criteria.
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 Available Balance in the account each day. A 365-day accrual basis will be used.
Closing an account: If you close an account before interest is credited, you will not receive the accrued interest.
Compounding and crediting: For all Interest Checking accounts, Money Market checking accounts, and Savings accounts, interest is compounded and credited monthly.
3 Interest accrual: For non-cash deposits (for example, checks) to Checking, Money Market, and Savings accounts, interest begins to accrue no later than the Business Day we receive credit. For cash and electronic deposits, interest begins to accrue the Business Day of deposit.
4 Minimum Balance: This fee will be imposed if the balance falls below the minimum daily balance any day of the month.
5 Rate information: Your interest rate and annual percentage yield may change. At our discretion, we may change the rate of interest on your account weekly; with the exception of Holiday Savings Club and Harvest Rewards Checking. On Holiday Savings Club, we may change the rate of interest on your account at maturity. On Harvest Rewards Checking, we may change the rate of interest on your account monthly. When an account qualifies for a higher interest rate based on the Available Balance, that higher rate will be applied to the entire Available Balance in the account; with the exception of Holiday Savings Club and Harvest Rewards Checking, which have split balance interest tiers. There is no limitation on the amount the interest rate may change. Interest rates and annual percentage yields are available by telephone at 1-800-371-3316 or at any FFBT location.
Statement: We will provide Checking, Money Market, and Savings account statements monthly.
