Limit one Premium Money Market account per Social Security number. Interest earned is based on Average Daily Balance for the month. The Premium Money Market account is a split rate tiered savings account where you earn the stated Annual Percentage Yield (APY) only for the account balance within each tier. Dividends are calculated by the average daily balance method that applies a periodic rate to the average daily balance in the account for the period. The average daily balance is calculated by adding the balance in the account for each day of the period and dividing that figure by the number of days in the period. The period we use is the calendar month. Other terms and conditions may apply.
