Deposit Reclassification

Under federal law, Central Bank is required to report deposits in a certain way for regulatory reporting purposes. We are simply changing the way we report checking accounts and we are notifying you of this change. This change does not affect you in any way, and no action is required.

Effective immediately, the bank may make a change in your checking account that will not affect your available balance, interest earnings, FDIC insurance or bank statement. This change will consist of a checking sub-account and a savings sub-account. Central Bank may periodically transfer funds between the two sub-accounts. On a sixth transfer during a calendar month, any funds in the savings sub-account will be transferred back to the checking sub-account. If an account pays interest, your interest calculation will remain the same. Otherwise, the savings sub-account will be non-interest bearing. The savings sub-account will be governed by the rules governing our other savings account.

ATM Fees: To obtain a refund of foreign ATM fees, a fee incurred at a non-Central Bank ATM, you must bring in (or mail) the original receipt(s) within 60 days of the transaction. Deliver receipt(s) to a Central Bank financial service representative for processing. Include your Central Bank account number on the receipt(s). After verification, the refund of qualifying foreign ATM fee(s) will be credited to your account.

**Monthly activity service charge will be waived on the first month’s statement cycle.

 

*Overdraft Privilege Disclosure: Central Bank reserves the right to limit participation to one account per household and to discontinue overdraft privilege without prior notice. Overdraft fees (insufficient funds fees) of $35 each will be charged for each overdraft created on your account by check, debit card, in-person withdrawals, ATM withdrawals or other electronic means. We normally require overdrafts to be repaid within 30 days. However, we reserve the right to require you to repay an overdraft immediately upon our demand. We do not pay overdrafts on accounts in the following circumstances: A) Accounts that are not in good standing B) Accounts where the overdraft limit has been reached and C) When we reasonably believe that an overdraft will not be repaid.
