Dividends cease to earn on balances greater than $500,000.01. Limitations: Minimum $25.00 opening balance is required.
    – Dividends are earned by balances within each balance range based on day end balances. For example if your balance at the end of a day was $30,000.00 dividends would earn the rate for that day on $9,999.99 for the dividend rate for that band; the balances of $10,000.00 through $24,999.99 would earn the rate for the balances for that band, and the balance from $25,000 through $30,000.00 would earn the rate for the band $25,000.00 to $49,999.99. As a result, the Annual Percentage Yield (APY) will vary by the balance contained in each band – which results in the APY being displayed as a range which depends on the actual balances within the bands.
