Will you collect private information during the online application process?
What are the options to fund my new Savings account?

Funding your Savings account using a check, wire, or other payment source cannot be done through our online account application process.

If your account is approved but for any reason you are unable to connect an account using Plaid, we will send you an email within one week of account opening with instructions to enroll in online banking where you can set up an external account from which to transfer funds to your new Savings account.  The following disclosures pertain to external transfers conducted through online banking:

The external transfer service allows you to transfer funds between your deposit accounts at Poppy Bank and certain deposit accounts at other financial institutions.  You will need to enroll each of your non-Poppy Bank accounts that you wish to use for this external transfer service.  You agree that you will only attempt to enroll accounts for which you have the authority to transfer funds.  All accounts requested to be used as part of this external transfer service will be verified in accordance with Poppy Bank’s procedures.  The verification process must be completed by you prior to using the electronic transfer service.  Verification instructions are displayed to you during the enrollment process.

Funds requested to be transferred from your Poppy Bank account will be debited from your Poppy Bank account the Business Day following the day you initiate the transfer, provided you have met the cutoff time for submitting external transfers.  Funds requested to be transferred to your Poppy Bank account will be credited to your Poppy Bank account three (3) Business Days following the day you initiate the transfer, provided you have met the cutoff time for submitting external transfers. In the case of a future-dated or recurring transfer, these time limits will be the Business Day following the scheduled date of the transfer.  The cutoff time for initiating transfers is 3:00 PM Pacific Time.  Funds requested to be transferred will be debited/credited to the non-Poppy Bank account according to the receiving bank’s availability and Transaction processing schedule.

External transfers are subject to number and dollar limits, at Poppy Bank’s discretion. Standard external transfer limits are up to $100,000 daily and $250,000 monthly, unless otherwise agreed upon by you and Poppy Bank.  Limits will apply to the total of all external transfers of a specific type for all accounts enrolled in the Electronic Transfer service.  Poppy Bank may change your dollar limits and transfer limits at any time.

A transfer may not be completed if we believe it is not genuine, conflicts with another instruction or relates to funds or an Account over which there is a dispute or restriction on withdrawal or if we suspect the transfer in question results from a breach in the confidentiality of a Security Procedure or relates to an account or service that we suspect is being used for, or is the target of, fraudulent or illegal activity.

Is there a balance limit on my Savings account?
How is interest on the Savings account accrued and paid?

Interest will be compounded daily and credited to your account monthly.  We use the daily balance method to calculate the interest on your account.  This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day.  Interest begins to accrue on the business day you deposit non-cash items (for example, checks).  You must maintain the minimum balance requirement in the account each day to obtain the disclosed annual percentage yield.  If you close your account before interest is credited, you will receive your accrued interest. 

Am I limited on the deposits and withdrawals I make on my Savings account?

You are permitted to make unlimited deposits to your account.  You are limited to six (6) withdrawals per month at no cost.  Any withdrawals after the first six (6) will result in a per withdrawal fee of $5.00. 

How is interest income from my Savings account taxed?

Interest income earned from your Savings account will be reported as income on your form 1099-INT from Poppy Bank for the year in which it accrues.

When and how will I receive statements?

Account statements are prepared quarterly.  Additionally, a monthly statement will be prepared for any months in which you conduct an electronic transfer.  If you elect for electronic statements, they will be accessible through Poppy Bank’s online or mobile banking platform.  Otherwise, a paper statement will be mailed to the address associated with your Savings account.  A $5.00 per month paper statement fee will be assessed if you do not elect for electronic statements.

Can I open more than one Savings account?

Only one Online Savings account is permitted per applicant.
