MoneyWise Certificates offer the high dividend rate of a certificate with flexibility more like that of a typical savings account. These certificates have a 12-month term, but allow kids – or their parents – to add money to the account throughout the year.

*APY: Annual Percentage Yield. Fees could reduce the earnings on the dividend bearing accounts. TruStone Financial membership required. The APY assumes that dividends will remain in your account until maturity. Penalties may be imposed if you withdraw any of the principal in your account before the maturity date. The penalty will equal 90 days’ dividends on your account if the original term is one year or less. The penalty will equal 365 days’ dividends on your account if the original term is greater than one year. If a certificate is withdrawn within six calendar days after the account is opened, a penalty of at least seven days dividends will be assessed.
DIVIDEND INFORMATION: Balance computation method – Dividends are calculated by the daily balance method which applies a daily periodic rate to the balance in the account each day. Accrual of dividends on non-cash deposits – Dividends will begin to accrue on the business day you deposit non-cash items (e.g. checks) to your account. Compounding and crediting frequency – Dividends will be compounded and credited at the end of the calendar quarter and on the maturity date of your certificate. Withdrawal of dividends prior to maturity – The APY assumes that dividends will remain in your account until maturity. A withdrawal will reduce earnings.
The dividend period is quarterly. For example: the first dividend period of the calendar year is January 1 through March 31. All other dividend periods follow this pattern of dates. The dividend declaration date is the ending date of a dividend period, such as March 31. Dividend rates on certificates will be in effect until the maturity date. Dividends are no longer paid on nonrenewable certificates after maturity.
CERTIFICATE INFORMATION: If you are under age 18, the minimum balance to open is $25. Automatically renewable certificates have a 10-business day grace period after the maturity date to withdraw funds or close the account without being assessed an early withdrawal penalty. Accrued dividends will be paid during the grace period. Automatically renewable certificates will be renewed at maturity for the same term as the original. The new certificates will also be renewable.
1MoneyWise Certificate 12-month: MoneyWise certificate will be converted to a regular 12-month certificate on the maturity date immediately following the 18th birthday of the primary member. Additional deposits may be made throughout the term of the MoneyWise certificate.
