Interest is calculated as simple interest daily and credited monthly. Interest is computed on a calendar year basis. We pay interest only in whole cents. Therefore, at the end of each monthly interest payment period, any fractional amount of interest less than half of one cent will be rounded down and any fractional amount of interest equal to half of one cent or more will be rounded up to the next whole cent.

You can also receive incoming domestic wires at no cost. Outgoing wires are $15 per transaction, which is significantly lower than the industry standard.
