The minimum balance to earn this APY is $0.01. Fees could reduce earnings on the account.

Enrollment in online banking and in electronic statements is required to meet certain qualifiers. Please contact us for details on how to enroll.

3Domestic ATM Fee Refunds
If you meet the requirements associated with a qualification cycle period for Synergy Checking, we will reimburse you for domestic ATM fees. ATM fee reimbursement will be credited to your account on the last day of your statement cycle. ATM fees of $4.99 or less will be reimbursed up to a maximum of $4.99 per individual transaction. ATM fees of $5.00 or higher will be reimbursed if the appropriate ATM receipt is presented to a representative at one of our branches. If you believe that you have not been reimbursed the correct amount, please contact us. We must hear from you no later than 30 days after the statement cycle when the reimbursement was applicable.

“Qualification Cycle” means a period beginning one business day prior to the first day of the current statement cycle through one business day prior to the close of the current statement cycle.
