How Dividends Are Calculated
Dividends are figured using the average daily balance method. The calculation applies a periodic rate to the average daily balance in the account for the period. The average daily balance is calculated by adding the account balance for each day of the period and dividing by the number of days in the period.
When Dividends Begin to Accrue Interest
Cash and non-cash deposits, such as checks, begin to accrue on the business day you make your deposit.
Nature of Dividends
Dividends are paid from current income and available earnings, after required transfers to reserves are made at end of a dividend period.
