Individual Retirement Accounts

An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) should be the central building block of any financial portfolio. When you invest in a Heartland Area Federal Credit Union IRA, you can be sure your money will be there when you need it... because they're insured investments which are built to last. Unlike stocks or mutual funds, all Heartland Area Federal Credit Union's IRA accounts are separately insured up to $250,000 by NCUA, an agency of the federal government. This means your money (both the dividend and the principal) will always be there for you.

Variable Rate

  • $50 minimum balance is required to earn a dividend.

  • Dividends are paid quarterly.

Fixed Rate IRA

  • This IRA is in Share Certificates
  • Terms available: 12 months, 24 months, or 36 months

TRUTH-IN-SAVINGS ACCOUNT DISCLOSURES

Except as specifically described, the following disclosures apply to all of the accounts. All accounts described in this Rate and Fee Schedule are share accounts.

Rate Information. The Annual Percentage Yield is a percentage rate that reflects the total amount of dividends to be paid on an account based on the dividend rate and frequency of compounding for an annual period. For Share Certificate account, the Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield are fixed and will be in effect for the term of the account. For Share, Vacation, Christmas Club, and IRA accounts, the Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield may change quarterly as determined by the Credit Unionís Board of Directors. For Share Draft accounts, the Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield may change monthly as determined by the Credit Unionís Board of Directors. The Annual Percentage Yield is based on an assumption that dividends will remain on deposit until maturity. A withdrawal of dividends will reduce earnings.

Nature of Dividends. Dividends are paid from current income and available earnings after required transfers to reserves at the end of the dividend period.

Dividends Compounding and Crediting. The compounding and crediting of dividends applicable to each account is set forth in the Rate Schedule. The Dividend Period is the period of time at the end of which an account earns dividend credit. The Dividend Period begins on the first calendar day of the Dividend Period and ends on the last calendar day of the Dividend Period. The Dividend Rates and Annual Percentage Yields are the rates and yields as of the last dividend declaration date which is set forth in the Rate Schedule.

Balance Information. The minimum balance requirements applicable to each account are set forth in the Rate Schedule. For all Share Certificate and IRA Share Certificate accounts, dividends are calculated by the Daily Balance method which applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day. For all other accounts, dividends are calculated by using an 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 determined by adding the full amount of principal in the account for each day of the period and dividing that figure by the number of days in the period.
