Interest will be compounded on a monthly basis. Interest will be credited to your Kasasa Saver account on the last day of the current statement cycle.

- Interest Rate & Annual Percentage Yield:
The interest rate and Annual Percentage Yield (APY) associated with your Kasasa Saver account when linked to either a Kasasa Cash or Kasasa Cash Back account is documented below. Please refer to the appropriate Kasasa Cash or Kasasa Cash Back Truth In Savings Disclosure for specific account qualification information.

*When your linked Kasasa Cash or Kasasa Cash Back qualifications are not met during a Monthly Qualification Cycle: the entire daily balance in the Kasasa Saver account earns 0.05% APY.

*APY = Annual Percentage Yield. APY calculations are based on an assumed balance of $10,000.00 + $100,000 in your Kasasa Cash account and $25,000.00 + $100,000 in your Kasasa Saver account and an assumed statement cycle of thirty-one (31) days.
