By providing good cause written notice the Credit Union may reduce your Credit Line Limit, revoke your card and/or terminate this agreement.

By separate agreement the Card Holder may authorize the Credit Union to charge the minimum payment automatically to your share savings or share draft checking account. You may pay more frequently, pay more than the Minimum Payment, or pay the Total New Balance in full, which will reduce the Finance Charge. The Minimum Payment will be either (a) 2% of you Total New Balance, or $20.00, whichever is greater, or (*b) you Total New Balance, if it is less than $20.00, plus (c) any portion of the Minimum Payment(s) shown on prior statement(s) which remains unpaid. Additionally, any time your Total New Balance exceeds your Credit Line Limit, you must immediately pay the excess upon our demand. Payments made to your account will be applied in the following order: Fees and Finance Charges; Previously Billed Purchases; Cash Advances; New Purchases. The Credit Union may accept checks marked �payment in full� or with words of similar effect without losing any of our rights to collect the full balance of your account. However, any payment equal to, or greater than, the Previous Balance of Purchases will be applied first to that Balance and any Finance Charges there in to avoid continuing accrual of Finance Charges on that amount. Purchases and cash advances will be paid off in the order they were posted to your account. If two or more purchases were posted on the same day, your payment will be applied to the smallest first.
7. Finance Charges. You can avoid FINANCE CHARGE on purchases by paying the full amount of the New Balance of Purchases each month within 25 days of your statement closing date. Otherwise, the New Balance of Purchases, and subsequent purchases form date they are posted to your account will be subject to FINANCE CHARGE. Cash advances are always subject to FINANCE CHARGE from the date they are posted to your account.

Finance Charges (interest on cash advances) is calculated at the periodic rate of 1.32% per month (ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE of 13.75%) on the average daily principal balance. The principal balances of purchases and cash advances are determined each day during the statement period, beginning with the principal portion of your Previous Balance, reduced by payments you make and credits we apply, and increased by purchases and cash advances you make and debit adjustments we make during the same period. The daily principal balances are totaled, and divided by the number of days in the statement period, to produce separate average daily principal balances for purchases and cash advances to which the periodic rate is then applied. A $25.00 overlimit fee will be added to your account if you exceed your credit limit on each statement date. A late payment fee of $25.00 will be applied if your minimum is 10 days late.
8. Default. You will be in default if you fail to make a Minimum Payment within 45 days after your monthly statement closing date. You will also be in default if your ability to repay the Credit Union is materially reduced by a change in your employment, an increase in your obligations, bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings involving you, your death or your failure to abide by the Agreement or if the value of our security interest materially declines. If you default, the entire balance of this account shall become due and payable at the option of the Credit Union. In addition, the entire balance may be subject to an increase in the Annual Percentage Rate to 18% APR. This default rate will affect all special rates, promotional rates on purchases, cash advances, balance transfers and any other promotions should the account become in default.
