Your rate will be changed to the prevailing 30 month share certificate rate on the day we receive your request and will be in effect from that day until the share certificate maturity date. This flex rate option is not available for renewal terms.

A minimum balance of USD 500 is required to open the 30 month flex rate share certificate. To earn the full dividend, you are required to keep your funds in the account for the 30 month term. Early withdrawal penalties will apply.

Early withdrawal penalties will be waived on share certificates of 18 months or less when funds are used for a new home purchase financed by UNFCU or a new investment product offered by UNFCU or its affiliates, if the share certificate has been open and funded for at least six days. The early withdrawal penalty for certificates closed within the first six days of funding is seven days of simple interest.

*The flex rate option on the 30 month share certificate was introduced on 22 October 2015 and is not available for certificates opened prior to this date. Flex rates may not be converted to promotional rates or any other special offers. After the flex rate feature has been exercised, the new dividend rate will be reflected in the statement of the month that the option was exercised. You will not receive an additional share certificate receipt upon exercising your flex rate option. The one-time rate conversion option must be exercised within the initial 30 month term and cannot be carried over into a renewal term.

*** The new deposit cannot be funds already held by UNFCU or its affiliates including but not limited to existing savings, checking and investment accounts. To be eligible to receive the 0.25% APY bonus rate, you must keep the share certificate open for its full term.
