Frequently Asked Questions


Why did 1st MidAmerica introduce Member Relationship Rewards?

We created Member Relationship Rewards to provide our members with increased savings and convenience for making us their financial provider. The more relationships you have with us, the higher your level of rewards.

How will I know which tier I am?

You will see your tier on your account statements.

When, or how often, will my tier change?

Your tier is subject to change on a monthly basis. As long as you maintain your current relationship, your tier will not change. If your balances increase to an amount that elevates you to a higher level, or your balances decrease to an amount that places you in a lower level, your level will not change for at least one statement period. On the last day of a month, your balances are calculated, then your tier is assigned and will appear on your next month's statement. For example, your balances for the month will be calculated on May 31, your tier will be assigned on June 30. If you are a Select or Premier member your rewards will begin on July 1. If you are a Basic member, your monthly maintenance charge will occur on June 30.

How is my total relationship, or balances, calculated?

On the last day of each month, your account balances are calculated. Your loan balances, as of the last day of the month, are added to the average daily balance of your share accounts for the month. All loans and share accounts are used to calculate your balances. These include mortgage, auto, home equity, visa and other personal loans, share certificates, money market accounts, IRAs, checking accounts and basic share accounts.

What promotional offers will I receive as a Premier member?

As a Premier member, you will receive the benefits outlined in our rewards chart. You will also receive periodic special offers or coupons for discounts on products and services. You may receive these through the mail or a staff member may make you special offers when you visit our branches.

Why do Basic members have a $5 monthly maintenance charge?

As a cooperative, we depend on the participation of all our member-owners to remain financially healthy, making it possible to successfully serve all our members. Member participation enables 1st MidAmerica to provide you with the best services and products available so you can manage your finances with convenience and confidence. Members contribute to the credit union by maintaining combined loan and share balances of over $500 with us. We are asking members who do not maintain combined loan and share balances above $500 to participate through a small cooperative contribution of $5 per month.

If my account reaches a zero balance, what will happen?

If your basic share account falls below $5, you will need to replenish your share account through account transfers or by making a deposit at one of our branches. If your account remains below $5 for 3 consecutive months, the credit union will either transfer funds from another share account or close your account if no other share funds are available for transfer. If your account is closed, you may open a new account with the credit union at a later date, but we will open the new account with a new account number.

What can I do to increase my rewards?

Here are some tips to help you quickly maximize your benefits:

Why do members who use 1st MidAmerica Investement Services qualify for the Premier level?

We constantly strive to provide members with services that increase the financial well-being of our members. When a member elects to use Investment Services, the member is choosing to plan for the future. Whether you are planning for retirement, a child's education, or want to protect your assets, 1st MidAmerica offers no cost, no obligation financial management service to assist you.
