Minimum Balance Requirements

Average Daily Balance Computation Method
Interest is calculated by the average daily balance method which applies a periodic rate to the average daily balance in the account for the period. The average daily balance is calculated by adding the balance in the account for each day of the period and dividing that figure by the number of days in the period. The period MCU uses is the monthly statement cycle.
Accrual of Interest on Non-Cash Deposits
Interest will begin to accrue on the business day you deposit non-cash items (for example, checks) to your account.
Fees and Charges
There is no fee for each check/debit/ACH presented to the HSA Checking Account.
The HSA checking account does not have a monthly maintenance fee or a minimum balance requirement.
Any applicable fees are listed in the “Truth in Savings Fee Disclosure”
If there are not enough funds available in the HSA Checking Account to cover an applicable fee, the fee will be pulled out of your checking or savings account.
Any transaction limitations that are not listed above can be found in your “HSA Account Custodial Agreement”. Contributions and withdrawals are limited by law. Please seek advice from your tax professional. You have the right to withdraw your deposit plus interest at any time, however, you may be subject to certain penalties.
