Terms & Conditions
You intend these rules to apply to this account depending on the form of ownership and beneficiary designation, if any, specified on page 1. We make no representations as to the appropriateness or effect of the ownership and beneficiary designations, except as they determine to whom we pay the account funds.
DEFINITIONS: "We," "our," and "us" mean the issuer of this account and "you" and "your" mean the depositor(s). "Account" means the original certificate of deposit as well as the deposit it evidences.
TRANSFER: "Transfer" means any change in ownership, withdrawal rights, or survivorship rights, including (but not limited to) any pledge or assignment of this account as collateral. You cannot transfer this account without our written consent.
PRIMARY AGREEMENT: You agree to keep your funds with us in this account until the maturity date. (An automatically renewable account matures at regular intervals.) You may not transfer this account without first obtaining our written consent. You must present this certificate when you request a withdrawal or a transfer.
This account is void if the deposit is made by any method requiring collection (such as a check) and the deposit is not immediately collected in full. If the deposit is made or payable in a foreign currency, the amount of the deposit will be adjusted to reflect final exchange into U.S. dollars.
We may change any term of this agreement. Rules governing changes in interest rates have been provided on page 1. For other changes we will give you reasonable notice in writing or by any other method permitted by law.
If any notice is necessary, you all agree that the notice will be sufficient if we mail it to the address listed on page one of this form. Your must notify us of any change.
WITHDRAWALS AND TRANSFERS: Only those of you who sign the permanent signature card may withdraw funds from this account. (In appropriate cases, a court appointed representative, a beneficiary or a trust or pay-on-death account whose right of withdrawal has matured, or a newly appointed and authorized representative of a legal entity may also withdraw from this account.) The specific number of you who must agree to any withdrawal is written on page one in the section bearing the title "...Number of Endorsements..." This means, for example, that if two of you sign the signature card but only one endorsement is necessary for withdrawal then either of you may request withdrawal of the entire account at any time.
These same rules apply to define the names and the number of you who can request our consent to a transfer.
PLEDGES: Any pledge of this account (to which we have agreed), must first be satisfied before the rights of any joint account survivor, pay-on-death beneficiary or trust account beneficiary become effective. For example, if one joint tenant pledges the account for payment of a debt and then dies, the surviving joint tenant's rights in this account are subject first to the payment of the debt.
Individual Account - Such as account is owned by one person.
Joint Account With Survivorship (And Not As Tenants In Common) - Such an account is owned by two or more persons. Each of you intend that upon death the balance is the account (subject to and previous pledge to which we have consented) will belong to the survivor(s). If two or more of you survive, you will own the balance in the account ownership as joint tenants with survivorship and not as tenants in common.
Joint Account - No Survivorship (As Tenants In Common) - Such an account is owned by two or more persons but none of you intend (merely by opening this account) to create any right of survivorship in any other person. We encourage you to agree and tell us in writing of the percentage of the deposit contributed by each of you. This information will not, however, affect the "number of endorsement" necessary for withdrawal.
Revocable Trust and Pay-on-Death Account (subject to this agreement) - If two of more of you create such an account, you own the account jointly with survivorship. Beneficiaries acquire the right to withdraw only if: (1) all persons creating the account die, (2) the beneficiary is then living, and (3) we are not otherwise required by Mississippi Law to make payment to a parent, custodian, or guardian. If two or more beneficiaries are named and survive the death of all persons creating the account, such beneficiaries will own this account in equal shares, without right of survivorship. Any such beneficiary may withdraw all or any part of the account balance. The person(s) creating either of these account types reserves the right to: (1) change beneficiaries; (2) change account types; and (3) withdraw all or part of the deposit at any time.
Trust Account Subject to Separate Agreement - We will abide by the terms of any separate agreement which clearly pertain to this account and which you file with us. Any additional consistent terms stated on this form will also apply.
SET-OFF: You each agree that we may (without prior notice and when permitted by law) set off the finds in this account against any due and payable debt owned to us now or in the future, by any or you having that right of withdrawal, to the extent of such person's or legal entity's right to withdraw. If the debt arises from a note, "any due and payable debt" includes the total amount of which we are entitled to demand payment under their terms of the note at the time we set off, including any balance the due date for which we properly accelerate under the note. This right of set-off does not apply to this account if: (a) it is an Individual Retirement Account or other tax-deferred retirement account, or (b) the debt is created by a consumer credit transaction under a credit card plan, or (c) the debtor's right of withdrawal arises only in a representative capacity. We will not be liable for the dishonor of any check when the dishonor occurs because we set off a debt against this account. Your agree to hold us harmless from any claim arising as a result of our exercise of our right of set-off.
BALANCE COMPUTATION METHOD: We use the daily balance method to calculate the interest on this account. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day.
TRANSACTIONS LIMITATIONS: You cannot make additional deposits to this account during a term (other than credited interest). You cannot withdraw principal from this account without our consent except on or after maturity. (For accounts that automatically renew, there is a ten day grace period after each renewal date during which withdrawals are permitted without penalty.)
In certain circumstances such as the death or incompetence of an owner of this account, federal regulations permit, or in some cases require, the waiver of the early withdrawal penalty.
FOR ACCOUNTS THAT AUTOMATICALLY RENEW: Each renewal term will be the same as this original one, beginning on the maturity date (unless we notify you, in writing, before a maturity date, of a different term for renewal).
You must notify us in writing before, or within a ten day grace period after, the maturity date if you do not want this account to automatically renew.
Interest earned during one term that is not withdrawn during or immediately after that term is added to principal for the renewal term.
The rate for each renewal term will be determined by us on or just before the renewal date. You may call us on or shortly before the maturity date and we can tell you what the interest rate will be for the next renewal term. On accounts with terms of longer that one month we will remind you in advance of the renewal and tell you when the rate will be known for the renewal period.
