The deposit relationship balance is calculated by adding the current balances in all Northwest Bank deposit accounts as of the close of your statement cycle for this checking account. Accounts used to calculate your deposit relationship balance include all Northwest checking, savings, money market, certificate of deposit, and individual retirement accounts owned by at least one of the owners listed on this checking account. Only personal accounts that are either solely owned, jointly owned, or account trustees, will qualify for relationship balances. Holds placed on deposits according to our Funds Availability Policy Disclosure do not reduce your current balance for deposit relationship balance calculation. Any account used in the calculation of your deposit relationship balance may be subject to its own service charge and must still meet the requirements disclosed for waiving the service charge specific to that account as applicable.
