Dividends will not be earned for any day the account balance is below the minimum balance to earn dividends. Dividends are paid from current income and available earnings after transfers to reserves at the end of the dividend period and therefore cannot be guaranteed.

ALL
Dividends are calculated by the daily balance method, which applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in your account each day. The dividend period is monthly. For example, the beginning date of the first dividend period of the calendar year is January 1 and the ending date is January 31. All other dividend periods follow the same pattern of dates. Dividends begin to accrue on the business day cash and non-ash items are deposited. The credit union may require notice of up to sixty (60) days for withdrawal of shares. A minimum balance (Par Value) of $50.00 is required to be maintained in Primary Shares to utilize other services. Additional account information may also be stated in individual account agreements or certificates. All transactions on these accounts are listed on the member’s periodic statement. Member’s accounts at Riverfront are federally insured up to at least $250,000 and backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government through the National Credit Union Administration.

In this brochure, the reference to “We,” “Us,” “Our” and “Credit Union” mean Riverfront Federal Credit Union. The words “You” and “Your” mean each person applying for and/or using any of the services described in this brochure. “Account” means any account or accounts established for You by the Credit Union.

Money Market Account Agreement

It is agreed that:
1. The account will earn dividends at rates which will vary from time to time and may be higher or lower than the rate in effect on the date of the first deposit to the account.
2. During any day that the balance for this account is below $500.00, the account will not earn dividends for that day.
3. Dividends are compounded daily and will be credited monthly.
4. Only Money Market checks and other methods approved by the credit union may be used to make withdrawals and transfers for this account.
5. TRANSACTION LIMITATIONS. Regulation D of the Federal Reserve permits you to make no more than six transfers and withdrawals, or a combination of such transfers and withdrawals, per calendar month, from all credit union savings-type shares (except checking) to another account of yours at the credit union, or to a third party by means of a preauthorized or automatic transfer, or telephonic agreement, and no more than three of the six such transfers may be made by check, draft, debit card or similar order made by you and payable to third parties. Automatic transfers from Savings to Checking to cover overdrafts also fall under the transfers limited to six per calendar month.
6. The credit union is under no obligation to honor a withdrawal or transfer request or pay a Money Market check that exceeds the fully paid and collected share balance in this account; the credit union may, however, honor such request or pay such Money Market check and transfer shares to this account in the amount of the resulting overdraft from any other share account from which the primary member or joint owner is then entitled to withdraw shares.
7. The credit union may pay a Money Market check on whatever day it is presented for payment, notwithstanding the date (or any limitation on the time of payment) appearing on the Money Market check.
8. When paid, Money Market checks become the property of the credit union and will not be returned either with the periodic statement of this account or otherwise.
9. Except for negligence, the credit union is not liable for any action it takes regarding the payment or nonpayment of a Money Market check.
10. Any objection respecting any item shown on a periodic statement of this account is waived unless made in writing to the credit union on or before the end of 60 days after the statement is mailed.
11. This account is subject to such other terms, conditions and service charges as the credit union may establish from time to time.

2. Only methods approved by the credit union may be used to make withdrawals and transfers from this account.
3. You are permitted to make either one withdrawal or one transfer from this Bonus Share Account each month. You agree to pay a service charge for each withdrawal or transfer made in excess of one in any month. (Refer to our schedule of rates and fees for applicable charge.)

Share Certificate and Yes$ Share Certificate Agreement
It is agreed that:
1. The person(s) named on the Investment Services Application is/are the owner(s) of the certificate number indicated on the application. Owners on certificates are limited to owners on members’ primary savings account. A certificate issued in the name of two or more owners indicates joint ownership with full rights of survivorship. Individual retirement account certificates are not eligible for joint ownership. For IRA certificates, the beneficiary is the person(s) designated as beneficiary on the Individual Retirement Account Agreement. The certificate will be subject to withdrawal or receipt by any owner without requiring consent of the other owner(s).
2. The certificate amount, maturity date, dividend rate and payment method are set forth on and governed by the face of the certificate. The dividend payment method may not be changed after issuance of certificate.
3. A certificate may only be used as collateral for a loan with a maturity date earlier than or the same as the maturity date of the certificate. A certificate may not be pledged, transferred or assigned to any party other than Riverfront Federal Credit Union. IRA certificates may not be pledged as collateral.
4. A certificate may be redeemed before its maturity date only upon presentation of the original certificate. If certificate funds other than dividends are withdrawn before the maturity date, a substantial penalty will be imposed. The penalty will be calculated as follows. For certificates purchased with a maturity term of 1 year or less, the penalty will be all dividends since the date of issuance or 90 days, whichever is less. For certificates with a maturity term of over 1 year, the penalty will be dividends since the date of issuance or 180 days, whichever is less. The penalty does not apply to any of the following early withdrawals: withdrawals subsequent to the death of any owner; withdrawal after the close of dividend period in which the owner’s credit union membership was terminated under Article III, Section 5(c) of the Bylaws.
5. The credit union will give the owner(s) at least thirty (30) calendar days notice prior to the maturity of a certificate. Unless the credit union is notified to terminate a certificate on the maturity date, the certificate renewal term will be the same as the original term, beginning on the maturity date. The dividend rate will be the same as we offer on new certificates on the maturity date which have the same term, minimum balance and other features as this original certificate. Yes$ Share Certificates will automatically redeem to the primary share account upon maturity if member
is over age 22.
6. Advertised yields on certificates assume interest is added to the principal until maturity.
