A special savings account allows you to accrue a larger dividend per quarter. A minimum deposit of $500 must be made to open a special savings. Rates are subject to change at the beginning of each quarter. Withdrawals may be made during the quarter with no penalty so long as a minimum balance of $500 remains in the account. Deposits to a special savings must be made in increments of $500 and can be done at any time during the quarter. Account closures during the quarter are subject to early withdrawal penalties.
