IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT OPENING A NEW DEPOSIT ACCOUNT: To help the federal government fight terrorist financing and money laundering, the USA PATRIOT Act requires us to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

The claim for faster funding is based on a comparison of the Republic Bank & Trust Company’s policy of releasing funds upon receipt of payment instructions to a typical banking practice of posting funds at settlement. Fraud prevention restrictions may delay the availability of funds with or without notice. Early availability of funds requires the support of the payer by direct payment and depends on the date of submitting the payment instruction by the payer.

If the average daily balance is more than $ 2,000.00, the interest on the portion of the average daily balance that exceeds $ 2,000.00 will be 0.49% with an APR of 0.50% and the interest paid on the portion of the average daily balance of 2 $ 000.00 or less would be 5.87%.
