Important Definitions

  • "Introductory Period" - Begins the day of account opening and continues through the first Evaluation Day.
  • "First Evaluation Day" - Will occur at the end of the First Evaluation Period after account opening.
  • "First Evaluation Period:"
    • Accounts opened before February 1, 2019: Begins on the first business day of the month after account opening and ends at 4:00 pm PT on the next month’s Evaluation Day, except for accounts opened on the last two business days of a month. For accounts opened on the last two business days of a month, the First Evaluation Period will begin on the first business day of the second month after account opening, and end at 4:00 p.m. PT on the next month’s Evaluation Day. 
    • Accounts opened on or after February 1, 2019: Begins on the third business day prior to the end of the month after the month of account opening and ends at 4:00 pm PT on the next month’s Evaluation Day.

Following the Introductory Period, the following definitions apply:

  • "Evaluation Period" - Begins the day after an Evaluation Day and ends at 4:00 pm PT on the next month's Evaluation Day.
  • "Evaluation Day" -The fourth business day prior to the end of a month.

Introductory Interest Rate
During the Introductory Period, all new Savings Builder accounts will be paid the Upper Tier interest rate. After the Introductory Period ends, accounts will be evaluated on the first Evaluation Day to determine the interest rate to be paid for the next Evaluation Period.

Monthly Determination of Interest Rate
On each Evaluation Day the interest rate applicable for the next Evaluation Period will be determined. Accounts with an end-of-day balance of at least $25,000 on the Evaluation Day or with at least one deposit of $100 or more that posts to the account during the Evaluation Period will earn the Upper Tier interest rate during the next Evaluation Period. Accounts with an end-of-day balance less than $25,000 on an Evaluation Day without a deposit of $100 or more that posts to the account during the Evaluation Period will earn the Base Tier interest rate for the next Evaluation Period. This process will occur every month.

Deposits Made Prior to the First Evaluation Period
Deposits of $100 or more made between the account opening date and the start of the First Evaluation Period will not count for purposes of determining the interest rate on the First Evaluation Day, unless they result in an account balance of $25,000 or more on the First Evaluation Day.

Example:
A Savings Builder account opened on February 12, 2019 and funded with an initial deposit of $5,000 would earn the Upper Tier interest rate during the Introductory Period, which begins on the account opening date and ends on the First Evaluation Day, April 25, 2019.  

The First Evaluation Period for this account begins on March 27, 2019 and ends on the First Evaluation Day, April 25, 2019.  With a balance less than $25,000, in order to continue earning the Upper Tier interest rate during the next Evaluation Period, the customer must make at least one deposit of $100 or more during the First Evaluation Period, March 27- April 25, 2019.

Important: Deposits made prior to March 27, 2019 will not count for purposes of determining the interest rate for the next Evaluation Period unless they result in an account balance of $25,000 or more on April 25, 2019.
