UBM Direct Savings Account Terms and Conditions

Welcome to the UBM DIRECT SAVINGS ACCOUNT from Ultima Bank Minnesota, the account that you manage electronically and pays a premium rate of interest. The current Interest Rate is 0.75% with an Annual Percentage Yield of 0.75%. The rate is determined by Ultima Bank Minnesota and is subject to change at our discretion and may change daily.

Introduction: In this Deposit Account Agreement and Disclosure, each and all of the depositors are referred to as "you" and "your". Ultima Bank Minnesota is referred to as "we," "our," and "us." The term "Agreement" means this Deposit Account Agreement and Disclosure. By selecting "I accept" at the end of this document you indicate that you have received a copy of this disclosure and agree to the terms of the Agreement. We may change the Agreement from time to time, if we choose, we don't have to collect any fees or charges or enforce the Agreement.

Rate Information: As stated earlier, the interest rate and annual percentage yield may change on this account. Check our rate page at: www.ultimabank.com for the most current rate information. Interest begins to accrue on the first business day after the day you deposit.  Interest is calculated daily, then compounded monthly and credited to your account monthly.  The interest rate is variable and subject to change without notice.  We use the daily balance method to calculate the interest in your account.  This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day. You must maintain a minimum balance of $1,000.00 in the account each day to obtain the disclosed annual percentage yield.  If you close your account before interest is credited, you may not receive the accrued interest.  Fees may reduce earnings.

Account Fees and Limitations: A monthly service charge of $10.00 will be assessed in any month the balance of your account falls below $1,000.00 on any given day. A fee of $25.00 will be assessed if you close your UBM DIRECT SAVINGS ACCOUNT within the first 90 days of opening.

Account Opening Deposit: You may authorize us to withdraw funds from the checking account on your application or send us an incoming wire transfer. Your  account must be a checking account and cannot be a money market account, even if you have check-writing privileges with that account. For your security we will verify that you have access to the checking account indicated. We may put a temporary hold on your deposit(s) for up to 10 business days or until you complete our verification procedures, whichever is longer.  You must deposit at least $1,000 to open this account.

Deposits: You may make deposits to your UBM DIRECT SAVINGS ACCOUNT by requesting a withdrawal from your  checking account via the transfer feature in Online Banking (may take up to three business days), by transferring funds from another Ultima Bank Minnesota account, or by sending an incoming wire. DO NOT SEND CASH. It is your responsibility to verify that your deposit reaches us and that we know where you want your deposit credited. If we do not receive your deposit or are not sure to which account it should be credited, you will be responsible for any loss that results.

We may limit or refuse any part of a deposit. If an item you deposit is returned unpaid or is otherwise charged back to us we will charge it back to your account along with a $10.00 fee for Deposited Items Returned. In general, you can't withdraw a deposit for 10 business days.

Withdrawals: You may withdraw funds from your UBM DIRECT SAVINGS ACCOUNT by accessing your account via our Online Banking and 1) transferring to an existing Ultima Bank Minnesota account or 2) transferring funds to your  checking account. Withdrawals may take up to 3 business days to reach your checking account from the date of your request.  Total withdrawals per day not to exceed $100,000 without prior seven days notice.

Account Ownership: A UBM DIRECT SAVINGS ACCOUNT can be opened for any citizen or permanent resident (per the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia (the "U.S.") by providing us with certain verifying information such as social security number(s), date of birth and U.S. address for each account owner. Any account with a Taxpayer ID # ("TIN") must be opened by mail with a Business, Trust, Estate or Government/Municipal/Public Funds Account Application. All accounts must have a checking account at a financial institution chartered in the U.S.

Types of Account Ownership

Individual Accounts: An Individual Account is an account in the name of only one person and only that person may withdraw money from the account.
Multiple-Party Accounts

Joint Account Ownership: An account with two or more Account Holders is a joint account. Joint Account holders are treated as joint tenants with right of survivorship, if one of the joint Account Holders dies, that person's ownership interest will immediately pass to the other joint account holder(s).

Transactions for Multiple-Party Accounts: Each joint Account Holder, without the consent of any other Account Holder, may make any transaction allowed under the Agreement, including the following:

  • withdraw all or any part of the money in the Account
  • pledge the Account as collateral to us for any obligation
  • close the Account and decide how to pay the money in the Account.

Any joint Account Holder may act for the other Account Holder(s). We may accept orders and instructions regarding the Account from any joint Account Holder. If we believe that there may be a dispute between joint Account Holders or if we receive inconsistent instructions, we may suspend or close the Account (after giving any notice required by law), we may require a court order to act, and we may require that all joint Account Holders agree in writing to any transaction concerning the Account.

Your obligations under the Agreement are joint and several. This means that each joint Account Holder is fully and personally obligated under the Agreement for all your obligations. Each joint Account Holder is liable for all overdrafts and account charges, even if only one Account Holder caused this to happen, knew about it, or received a benefit from any overdraft or account charges. Also, we may use our right of setoff against the Account. The right of setoff is explained in the Account details.

P.O.D Account: A Payable on Death (P.O.D.) Account is an account payable to the Account Holder during his or her lifetime. As the owner of the Account, the Account Holder may withdraw money from the Account. Also, the Account Holder may change the P.O.D. payee on the account. When the Account Holder dies, the Account is owned by the P.O.D. payees. If the P.O.D. Account is held by more than one person, each Account Holder is covered by the above rules for joint accounts. If there is no surviving P.O.D. payee when the last Account Holder dies, state law will determine who owns the money in the Account.

Additional Account Types

Formal Trust Account: A Formal Trust Account is an account held by one or more trustees for the benefit of one or more beneficiaries according to the written trust agreement. The trustees must give us a copy of any trust agreement covering the Account. We act only as the custodian of the trust funds. We are not required to act as trustee or to ask about the powers or duties of any trustee.

Business Accounts: If the account is not owned by a natural person, the Account Holder must supply us with documentation that shows who can sign on behalf of the Account Holder. This applies to corporations, partnerships, sole proprietorships, associations and similar organizations.

Government/Municipal/Public Funds Accounts: This type of account is owned by a government or public entity. For this type of account, you must give us a form that lists us as a depository for the funds of the government or public entity. Also, the form must also say who can conduct transactions for the government or public entity account holder. If required by law, you agree to enter into a Collateral Security Agreement regarding this type of account.

Account Details

Limitations on frequency of transfers - In addition to any limitations described elsewhere, the following limitations apply to your savings accounts:  During any statement period, you may not make more than six withdrawals or transfers to another account of yours.  If you exceed the transfer limitations set forth above in any statement period, we reserve the right to close your account.  Except as indicated elsewhere, we do not charge for or limit these electronic fund transfers.  There is no limit to the number of deposits you may make to your UBM Direct savings account.

Automatic Savings Plan: You may authorize Ultima Bank Minnesota and your other bank to debit another Ultima Bank Minnesota account or your checking account in accordance with your instructions on our Automatic Savings Form or on your Account Application. You may direct us to stop your Automatic Savings Plan withdrawals by giving us written notice 3 business days prior to your next scheduled withdrawal. You may notify us by completing an online form in online banking, by calling us at (800) 421-2588 or by mailing us at P.O. Box 299, Fosston, MN 56542, in time for us to receive your request 3 business days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made. If you call, we may also require you to put your request in writing and get it to us within 14 days after you call.

Overdrafts: You may not overdraw your UBM DIRECT SAVINGS ACCOUNT. You agree not to withdraw more money than is available at the time of your request. Any item that overdraws the account will be returned and a $25 per item charge will be assessed.

Financial Institution Liability: If we do not properly complete a transaction according to the Agreement, we are not liable for losses or damages greater than the amount of the transaction. We are not liable for consequential damages. When we receive requests from you for a withdrawal or items for deposits, we are acting only as your agent. You are responsible for the condition of a check when you deposit it. If a check or item is returned or payment is delayed as a result of any writing or marking that you or a prior endorser placed on the front or back of the check or item, you will be responsible for any cost and liabilities associated with such return or delay. If any deposited item is lost in the collections process, we may reverse the credit for the deposited item or charge your Account for the item.

Right of Setoff: We may use our right of setoff against any or all of your accounts (except IRA, Keogh Plan and Trust Accounts) without notice, if allowed by law. This means that we may charge your deposit accounts for any of your liabilities or debts to us. If the Account is a joint account, we may set off against any and all accounts of each Account Holder, even though only one joint Account Holder owes us money.

Inactive and Dormant Accounts: Your Account is considered dormant after 3 years if no account activity has taken place during that time period. Funds in abandoned accounts will be sent to a state agency, in accordance with state law. After the funds have been sent to the state, we are not responsible for them. If you choose to reclaim the funds, you may apply to the state agency. We reserve the right not to send statements on accounts we consider dormant, subject to applicable law.

Wire and ACH Transactions: From time to time you may be a party to an Automated Clearing House ("ACH") entry or a wholesale (wire) funds transfer which may be credited to your UBM DIRECT SAVINGS ACCOUNT. The Uniform Commercial Code Article 4A governs wholesale wire transfers as well as any commercial ACH credit entry and any consumer ACH credit entry excluded from the Electronic Funds Transfer Act. The Electronic Funds Transfer Agreement and Disclosure provided to you reflects our policies relating to the electronic funds transfers governed by the Electronic Funds Transfer Act.

Provisional Payment: Credit given by us to you with respect to an ACH credit or wholesale (wire) funds transfer entry is provisional until we receive final settlement for such entry through a Federal Reserve Bank. If we do not receive final settlement, you are hereby notified and agree that we are entitled to a refund of the amount credited to your Account in connection with such entry, and the party (the originator of the entry) making payment to you via such entry shall not be deemed to have paid you the amount of such entry.

We can extend these time periods if extenuating circumstances (such as an extended hospital stay) kept you from notifying us.

You agree that you will not reveal your online access information to any person not authorized by you to use it and will not leave your computer terminal unattended after you have logged in using your online access or other confidential information.  If you believe your electronic access information has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, telephone us at (800) 421-2588 or write to us at Ultima Bank Minnesota, P.O.

Prohibited Transactions: Under the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 and Regulation GG, restricted transactions are prohibited from being processed through your account or relationship with us.  Restricted transactions are those in which a person knowingly accepts credit, funds, instruments or other proceeds from another person in connections with unlawful internet gambling.
