Question:  What is a MMA (Money Market Account)? 

Answer:  It is a type of share savings account where very little account activity is expected and is normally controlled by assessing fees for excessive activity and/or for falling below the required minimum balance of $1,000.  The two key features of this account versus a regular savings account is the added dividend earning potential and the capability to write checks from that account even though it is a special share account.  It is commonly referred to as a Money Market Account.

Question:  How many withdrawals/transfers may I make from this account? 

Answer:  You may make six (6) per month as limited by Federal law and regulation.  Included are transfers to third parties by means of a preauthorized, automatic, telephonic, home banking or audio response transfer or instruction. Exempt are transfers/withdrawals made in person.  If you exceed the limit on preauthorized and automatic withdrawals/transfers, you will be assessed $12 fee for each occurrence.  If you continually exceed the monthly transaction limit, your MMA may be closed as prescribed by law and regulation.

Question:  Do I need special checks to access this account? 

Answer:  Yes.  Checks should be ordered when this account is opened.

Question:  May this account be used for overdraft protection? 

Answer: No.

Question:  May I set up online bill payment from this account?

Answer:    No.

Question:   May I use my check card on this account?

Answer:  No

Question:  If my account is assessed a fee for failure to maintain required balance or for excessive withdrawals and my account starts the new dividend period below minimum balance requirement, will I be assessed a fee? 

Answer:  Yes, you need to make sure your minimum balance is always at or above the minimum balance required of $1,000.  Example: Your balance falls to $500 on October 15, and you make a deposit of $520 on October 30 to bring your balance up to $1,020.  You are assessed a $10.00 minimum balance fee and $12.00 in excess withdrawal fees on October 31 so that your balance declines to $998.00 on October 31.  You did not make another deposit before the fees were assessed on October 31.  So, your beginning balance on November 1 is $998.00 and you will be assessed a $10.00 minimum balance fee on November 30.

1 Annual Percentage Yield. Certificates - $500.00 minimum deposit. Dividends paid and compounded quarterly. Rates may be changed or discontinued at any time; call your local branch for current rates. Fees and/or withdrawals will reduce earnings. When opening a certificate the member has agreed to leave the principal of this account on deposit for the full term stated in the account or renewal notice. If all or part of the principal is withdrawn before the maturity date, the Credit Union may charge a penalty. Withdrawal of the principal amount of the certificate may be made only with the consent of the Credit Union. Unless stated otherwise, the owner shall forfeit an amount equal to 90 days dividends, whether earned or not, on certificates with maturities less than 24 months; 180 days dividends, whether earned or not, on certificates with maturities between 24 and 48 months; 365 days dividends, whether earned or not, on 59 month certificates. The penalty may be calculated at the rate paid on the deposit. The penalty will, if necessary, be taken from the principal amount of the deposit.
