As stated on the Certificate Account Penalties page, the Early Withdrawal Penalty (EWP) reads as follows:

      If the certificate account term is 12 months: 90 days of accrued dividends;

      If the certificate account term is 24 months: 120 days of accrued dividends;

      If the certificate account term is 36 months: 180 days of accrued dividends.

Each of the above phrases is followed by “or all accrued dividends since the date of issuance or renewal not to be less than 7 days’ dividends on a new account.” The lesser amount applies which means that the penalty will not eat into the principal.

Funding and Maturing Funds

CSR stated that the easiest way to fund a CD Special being opened online is through a transfer from an HVCU savings/checking account. HVCU participates in the CO-OP Shared Branch network, making the transfer of funds relatively easy. CDs can also be funded by ACH, wire transfer, or by check. Maturing funds can be distributed by check to the address on file or transferred into an HVCU savings or checking account. There is a 10 calendar day grace period before a CD will automatically renew.

Hudson Valley Credit Union’s history is a classic chronicle of credit unions in America. Established in October 1963 as the IBM Poughkeepsie Employees Federal Credit Union, the Credit Union had 14 member accounts and $172 in assets by the end of the first year. For the first 30 years, the credit union grew, but its membership was limited to IBM employees. In 1994, the name was changed to Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union to better reflect its SEG-based status. A community charter was adopted in 2003, extending membership to residents of four New York State counties. According to a 2019 Albany Business Review article,

The CEO of Hudson Valley Credit Union, Mary Madden, said the credit union is looking at all opportunities to expand after changing its charter and adding more counties to its coverage area.

The Poughkeepsie-based credit union was approved to change last month from federally charted to state chartered. With that change, its coverage area has expanded to Albany, Saratoga, Schenectady and Rensselaer counties, as well as Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange, Dutchess, Ulster, Columbia and Greene. The credit union changed its name to Hudson Valley Credit Union from Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union.

"We were very limited by our federal charter and the New York State Department of Financial Services is more open for us to expand our charter to provide more New Yorkers with affordable financial services," Madden told the Business Review in an interview last month. "Our goal is to grow, and grow in a very methodical way."

Hudson Valley Credit Union is currently the fifth largest credit union headquartered in New York, with more 318,000 members and assets in excess of $6.4 billion.
