What's the difference between a Primary and a Regular Share?

Primary and Regular Shares are essentially the same account with just a few simple differences:

Requirements: Starts at a $10 minimum opening deposit ($5 membership fee + $5 minimum account balance) Requirements: Having a Primary Share

Benefits (the same for both accounts):
- Up to 0.55% APY*
- No monthly service fee
