All members who open a Laurel Road Linked Savings during their new student loan refinancing will receive an introductory 2-month 0.25% interest rate discount at account opening. The interest rate discount applied for each month thereafter will vary based on the average prior monthly balance held in the savings account.

In addition to the Linked Savings discount, members can also receive any other interest rate discounts they may be eligible for, such as Autopay and/or eligible affiliation discounts.
Once a Linked Savings account is opened, interest will begin to accrue on a deposit on the first business day we receive your deposit.

All savings accounts pay interest at a variable rate and rates may vary based on the balance in your Account. Refer to the Interest Rate and Annual Percentage Yield (APY) chart for interest rate and APY information pertaining to your Account. We may change the interest rate and APY at our discretion and as often as daily. There are no limits on the amount that the interest rate or APY may change. The interest rate and APY for this Account may vary based on multiple factors including, but not limited to: your overall relationship with the bank as defined by other Accounts you have, the balances in all of your Accounts, Account location, Account usage and other bank services you use. We use the daily balance method to compute interest on Accounts. This method applies a daily percentage rate to the balance in the Account each day. To determine the daily percentage rate, we divide the interest rate by the actual number of days in the year. Interest begins to accrue on non-cash items (for example, checks) presented to us no later than the business day we receive credit for the deposit. Interest is compounded daily and credited to your Account monthly.
If you close your Account within ten (10) business days after the last interest payment date, the accrued but not yet credited interest will not be paid. If you close your Account after the tenth business day, interest accrued up to, but not including, the day of withdrawal will be paid at closing.
The minimum deposit required to open this Account is $0.00.This Account pays a variable rate of interest as described in the “Interest Rates & Payments” section. The monthly Maintenance Service Charge is $0.00. Your canceled checks and digital images of your canceled checks will be held by KeyBank in our secure system. We reserve the right to limit opening deposits in this account to $500,000.00 per account.
In addition to your specific Account service charges described above, your Account may also incur service charges as described in the OTHER CHARGES section listed at the end of this document. Your Account is also subject to our Deposit Account Agreement and Funds Availability Policy.
The term Withdrawal means any check, any preauthorized transfer or withdrawal (including any electronic debit or automatic payment), and any telephone transfer or wire transfer of funds from your Account. The term checks/withdrawals paid as referenced in this Disclosure means a check, or each withdrawal made in a KeyBank branch. Deposit means a deposit of funds into your Account, including any electronic direct deposit, automatic deposit or telephone transfer.
The Daily Balance is the balance in your Account each day. The Average Daily Balance is calculated by adding the Daily Balance in your Account for each day of the statement period and dividing that amount by the number of days in the statement period.
We provide detailed statements for all Accounts (except passbook savings). Check safekeeping is required. Check safekeeping means that your canceled checks and other items are not returned with the statement but are stored for you on microfilm records. If you request a copy of a canceled check or item, we will send you the copy (refer to the OTHER CHARGES section for applicable service charges), provided that the check or item was presented for payment within the time period during which we maintain copies of checks (normally seven years).
If the number of withdrawals/transfers made to another KeyBank account of yours or to a third party by means of a preauthorized or automatic transfer or telephonic (including data transmission) agreement, order or instruction, or by check, draft, debit card, or similar order and payable to a third party exceeds a total of seven (7) per monthly period, your account will be charged $15.00 for each transfer or payment over the limit.

Annual Percentage Rate (“APR”): This term represents the actual cost of financing to the borrower over the life of the loan expressed as a yearly rate.
Interest Rate: A simple annual rate that is applied to an unpaid balance.
Variable Rates: The current index for variable rate loans is derived from the one-month London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) and changes in the LIBOR index may cause your monthly payment to increase. Borrowers who take out a term of 5, 7, or 10 years will have a maximum interest rate of 9%, those who take out a 15 or 20-year variable loan will have a maximum interest rate of 10%.
The London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) benchmark used as the Index for this loan is likely to be discontinued after 2021 or perhaps sooner. Should LIBOR no longer be available, an alternative published benchmark will be selected to serve as the Index. Any alternative Index may behave differently than LIBOR; however, any Index changes will not change most other terms of the loan, such as the maximum interest rate payable during the term of this loan or the timing of any interest rate resets. For more information on the possible discontinuation of LIBOR, see the Alternative Reference Rates Committee website which is maintained by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and is available at: https://www.newyorkfed.org/arrc.
