The Annual Percentage Yield on Share Certificates assumes dividends will remain on deposit until maturity. A withdrawal will reduce earnings. A penalty of up to 90 days of dividends may be imposed for early withdrawal on Share Certificates and Performance Saver Accounts and will affect earnings on the account. You must be an ACU member to qualify.
