Important Kasasa Account Disclaimers:

 ‡ Kasasa Cash with Kasasa Saver - Truth In Savings Disclosure

This disclosure contains the rules that govern your deposit account as of November 22, 2022.

Account Overview:
• Kasasa Cash: A free variable rate checking account with no minimum balance that rewards accountholders with interest and nationwide ATM withdrawal fee refunds when they meet minimum qualifications during the account's Monthly Qualification Cycle.
• Kasasa Saver is a free, variable rate, deposit account with no minimum balance that rewards accountholders with interest when they meet the minimum qualifications associated with their linked Kasasa Cash checking account during each Monthly Qualification Cycle.

Purpose and Expected Use of Account
This account is intended to be the accountholder's primary checking account in which payroll transactions and day-to-day spending activities including but not limited to grocery, gasoline, apparel, shopping, dining, sporting and entertainment transactions are posted and settled.
Commensurate with the spending activities identified above, we expect the account's debit card to be used frequently throughout each month and for transaction amounts to reflect a wide dollar range. Small debit card transactions conducted on the same day at a single merchant and/or multiple transactions made during a condensed time period particularly near the end of a Monthly Qualification Cycle are not considered normal, day-to-day spending behavior. These types of transactions appear to be conducted with the sole purpose of qualifying for the account's rewards and thus will be deemed inappropriate transactions and will not count toward earning the account's rewards.
First Independent Bank reserves the right to determine if the account is being maintained for a purpose other than day-to-day, primary use. Accountholders who persist in making debit card transactions in a calculated and limited fashion in order to meet their monthly qualifications may have their accounts converted to a different checking account or closed altogether. We also reserve the right to convert the account to a different checking account if the account does not have consistent active use over 3 consecutive Statement Cycles.
We have the right to close this account at any time, with proper notice. Our decision to close the account will not affect your existing obligations to us including any obligation to pay fees or charges incurred prior to termination. No deposits will be accepted, and no checks will be paid after the account is closed. If the account is closed, you will forfeit any rewards that have not been credited to your account. A First Independent Bank check for the remaining balance, if applicable, will be mailed to accountholder at the address indicated on our current records. Upon termination of your Kasasa Cash with Kasasa Saver account, any optional add-on products / services associated with this account will also be terminated at the same time.
If, for whatever reason the Kasasa Saver portion of your account is closed, your account will automatically be converted to a standalone Kasasa Cash account and only the Kasasa Cash terms and conditions articulated within this disclosure will apply.
Interest Rate & Annual Percentage Yield (APY)

• Compounding & Crediting:

 

Interest will be compounded on a monthly basis. Interest will be credited to your Kasasa Cash with Kasasa Saver account on the last day of the current statement cycle. If you close your account before the interest is credited, you will not receive the accrued interest. Interest begins to accrue on the business day you deposit noncash items (for example, checks).

 

"Business Day" means a calendar day other than a Saturday or a Sunday, January 1, the third Monday in January, the third Monday in February, the last Monday in May, July 4, the first Monday in September, the second Monday in October, November 11, the fourth Thursday in November, or December 25. If January 1, July 4, November 11, or December 25 falls on a Sunday, the next Monday is not a Business Day.

 

"Statement Cycle" means the period of time for which First Independent Bank provides a summary of the financial activities and transactions that post and settle to the accountholder's account. Contact one of our branch service representatives for specific Statement Cycle dates.

 

• Balance Computation Method:

 

We use the average daily balance method to calculate the interest on your Kasasa Cash with Kasasa Saver account. This method applies a periodic rate to the average daily balance in the account for the period. The average daily balance is calculated by adding the principal in the account for each day of the period and dividing that figure by the number of days in the period. The period we use is the Statement Cycle.

 

• Interest Rate & Annual Percentage Yield:

 

This is a variable rate account. The interest rate and annual percentage yield may change. The interest rate is determined at our discretion and we may change the interest rate on your account at any time, without any limitations, and without notice to you.

 

When your Kasasa Cash account qualifications are met during a Monthly Qualification Cycle:

 

Kasasa Cash: average daily balances up to and including $15,000.00 in your Kasasa Cash account earn an interest rate of 3.4451% resulting in a non-compounding APY* of 3.50%; and average daily balances over $15,000.00 earn an interest rate of 0.4989% on the portion of the average daily balance over $15,000.00, resulting in a non-compounding range from 3.50% to 0.89% APY depending on the account's average daily balance.

 

Kasasa Saver: average daily balances up to and including $30,000.00 in your Kasasa Saver account earn an interest rate of 0.9954% resulting in an APY of 1.00%; and average daily balances over $30,000.00 earn an interest rate of 0.7474% on the portion of the average daily balance over $30,000.00, resulting in a range from 1.00% to 0.81% APY depending on the account's average daily balance.

 

When your Kasasa Cash account qualifications are not met during a Monthly Qualification Cycle:

 

Kasasa Cash: ATM withdrawal fees are not refunded and the entire average daily balance in the account earns an interest rate of 0.05% resulting in a non-compounding annual percentage yield of 0.05%.

 

Kasasa Saver: the entire average daily balance in the Kasasa Saver account earns an interest rate of 0.05% resulting in an annual percentage yield of 0.05%.
