¹Pelican State CU membership is required to open a Kasasa Cash rewards checking account. If you are not a Pelican member, you must be eligible to open a primary savings account with Pelican to become one. The deposit to open a primary savings account starts at a minimum of $10 ($5 to join + $5 minimum balance). A minimum deposit of $25 is required to open Kasasa Cash account. APY = Annual Percentage Yield. APYs accurate as of 9/1/2023. Rates and rewards may change after account is opened. This account is a tiered rate account. When your Kasasa Cash account qualifications are met during a Monthly Qualification Cycle, average daily balances up to and including $10,000 in your Kasasa Cash (tier 1) account earn a dividend rate of 5.89% resulting in an APY of 6.05%; and average daily balances over $10,000 (tier 2) earn a dividend rate of 0.50% on the portion of the average daily balance over $10,000, resulting in a range from 6.05% to 1.00% APY depending on the account's average daily balance. When your Kasasa Cash qualifications are not met, the dividend rate earned on the account's entire average daily balance will be 0.05% resulting in an annual percentage yield of 0.05% and ATM withdrawal fees are not refunded. APY calculations are based on an assumed balance of $10,000 (tier 1) + $100,000 (tier 2) in your Kasasa Cash account and an assumed statement cycle of thirty-one (31) days. The minimum service requirements include: (1) making 15 debit card point-of-sale purchases (ATM transactions and transfers between accounts do not qualify) that are cleared and posted to your account during the qualification period; (2) having direct deposit, ACH debit or credit, or Bill Pay transaction posted to your Kasasa Cash account; (3) accessing online or mobile banking once during qualification period; and (4) receiving your monthly statement electronically. Transactions may take 1 or more banking days from the date transaction was made to post to and settle account. The qualification period is defined as a period beginning on the last day of the prior calendar month and ending on the next-to-last day of the calendar month. ATM receipt must be presented for reimbursement of ATM fees of $5.00 or higher within 30 days after the statement cycle where the reimbursement was applicable in order to receive a refund. The advertised Kasasa Cash APY is based on compounding dividends. If member has a Kasasa Saver account, dividends earned on Kasasa Cash balances are automatically transferred to Kasasa Saver each statement cycle and do not compound. Actual dividends paid may be less than advertised Kasasa Cash APY. The Kasasa Saver APYs may be less than Kasasa Cash APYs. Not everyone will qualify to open a Kasasa Cash rewards checking account.

²APY = Annual Percentage Yield. Balances up to $50,000 in the Kasasa Saver account receive an APY of 2.25% if required service qualifications in the Kasasa Cash or Cash Back account are met each monthly qualification cycle. Balances of $50,000.01 and above receive an APY of 1.29% on the portion of the balance above $50,000 if qualifications in the Kasasa Cash or Cash Back account are met each monthly qualification cycle. As a result, the APY for balances above $50,000 will range from 2.25% - 1.62% if qualifications in the Kasasa Cash or Cash Back account are met each monthly qualification cycle, depending on the balance in the account. If qualifications in the Kasasa Cash or Cash Back account are not met, the APY will be 0.05% on all balances in the Kasasa Saver account. Monthly qualification cycle = last day of the month to the second to the last day of the next month. Monthly statement cycle = first day of the month to the last day of the month.
