The Best and Fairest Savings Plan
Ever Put Out By Any Bank Anywhere
The Munsey Trust Company's savings account plan is framed on strictly
new lines. It is a plan that brings to the savings depositor over four per cent,
as interest is compounded every three months. Moreover, the rules govern
ing savings deposits are liberal in spirit and fact.
They contain no penalty provisions that deprive a depositor of so much
as a single day's interest. Here are the rules and regulations governing
savings accounts:
1 . The Munsey Trust Company pays four per cent on sav
ings accounts. Deposits may be made on any business day in the
year, and will begin drawing interest on the first day after de
posits are made, provided the deposits are in cash. If made in ,
checks or drafts or money orders or express orders, interest will
commence when the drafts or kindred form of deposits have been
collected. This may take one day, or perhaps several days,de
pending upon the origin of the draft how far from Washington.
Savings deposits-may be drawn out on any businesVday-'in
the year, and without penalties causing a loss of so much as a sin
gle day's interest. "Savings deposits," however, presuppose that
the money is to remain in the bank for a considerable peripdThe
Munsey Trust Company fixes arbitrarily upon six monthsvas the
shortest time on which it will allow interest at the full pavings
account rate of four per cent. On money drawn out that has been
in the bank less than six months, the interest rate will be three
per cent instead of four.
In other banks most other banks no interest is allowed
on savings accounts running less than six months. But The
Munsey Trust Company will allow interest at the rate of three
per cent on every day, save the day of deposit, that the money is
in the bank if drawn out in a shorter period than six months. It
will allow four per cent if it remains in the bank six months or
more. Interest will be added quarterly. This means that interest
will be compounded on savings accounts four times a year, as
against twice a year in all, or nearly all, other savings institutions.
2. Any sums of money from one dollar up will be accepted
as a savings account, but interest will not begin until the sum of
ten dollars has accumulate;.. Sayings accounts may be opened
with as small a deposit as one dollar, and whenever additions have
brought the account up to ten dollars, then interest wHl tcom
menceand at four per cent, subject to the above conditions.
When an account that has exceeded ten dollars drops below
ten dollars, interest will cease during the, time it is below ten dol
lars. Money xwUl be received for savings accounts in: sums rang
ing from one dollar to five thousand dollars, but no savings ac
count will be allowed to exceed five thousand dollars except on
special arrangement.
- A
VVtf sv
3. A pass book will be furnished to every person opening
a savings account in The Munsey Trust Company, and on this
pass book will be entered the amount of the deposit and the date
on which it is made. Whenever additional deposits are made, they
must be entered on the pass book. Whenever money is with
drawn, the withdrawal entry must be entered on the pass book.
No money will be paid out except a record of the payment is en
tered on the pass book. This pass book is the receipt of the de
positor for his deposit, so should be preserved with greatest care.
4. If a pass book is lost, immediate notice must b&given to
this bank. If it has not been recovered within thirty days after
such notice, a duplicate pass book will be issued to the depositor,
provided The Munsey Trust Company be held harmless on ac
count of the issuance of the duplicate pass book. When a pass
book has been destroyed, or is alleged to have been destroyed,
and proper notice to this bank has been made, a new pass- book
will be issued on conditions that this bank be held harmless for
such issuance.
5. The Munsey Trust Company reserves the right to close
all savings accounts on thirty days' notice to depositors, in which
case interest will be figured at the rate of four per cent, whether
the deposits have been in the bank six months or less. The com
pany reserves this right for the reason that it may be found de
sirable from time to time to either increase or decrease the rate
of interest, dependent upon the money market. Presumably, how
ever, this will not happen often, and may not happen in a very
long time, if at all.
The Munsey Trust Company also reserves the right, on thirty
days' notice to depositors, to change its rules and regulations per
taining tg the relation between depositors and itself. :
Certificates of Deposit
The Munsey Trust Company will issue certificates of deposit
in place of issuing a pass book, when so desired. The company
will also issue certificates of deposit for any length of time and
any amount of money, whether for one month or one year or five
years or ten years, the interest rate to be mutually agreed upon
between the depositor and this bank.
No other bank or trust company anywhere
of standing and strength has a savings account
plan that in any way compares with this plan
of The Munsey Trust Company. No other
bank of big capital and real substantiality pays
four percent and compounds interest quarterly.
And no other bank of real responsibility
gives the savings depositor so square a deal in
its scheme of allowing interest without time
penalties that may rob him of interest alto
gether. Most or all other Washington banks allow
three per cent on savings accounts three per
cent to our four. Moreover, they compound
interest twice a year while we compound it
four times a year.
These other banks, all or nearly all, have
rigid time rules governing Savings Accounts,
while we have the most liberal rules rules as
liberal for the small man as for the big man
rules that do not impose the penalty of entire
loss of interest when the savings depositor
draws out his money at his pleasure or accord
ing to his necessities.
The Munsey Trust Company, with its fully
paid in capital of two million dollars, and a
surplus of one hundred and fifty-two thousand
The Property and Banking Home of The Munsey Trust Company dollars is as Strong as the Rock of Gibraltar.
As all capital stock carries a responsibility equal to its face value, our two millions of
capital means with our surplus a guarantee to the depositor of over four millions of dollars.
