*Annual Percentage Yield (APY).  Certain Restrictions may apply. APY accurate as of 03/17/20 and may change at any time after the account is opened. Fees may reduce earnings. Transactions may take one or more business days from transaction date to post to your account from the date the transaction is made. Transfers between The Bank of New Glarus® and Sugar River Bank Branches do not count as qualifying ACH transactions.

**Beginning April 1, 2020, the debit transaction qualifier of our Premier Checking accounts will be “temporarily waived” until further notice. This is a courtesy to our customers affected by the "safer-at-home" order in place in the state of Wisconsin, restricting access to non-essential retailers that may be temporarily closed.
