A: Absolutely! Enabling online trading simply adds to the services provided through your CUNA Brokerage Account. You still get all of the other great services offered by CUNA Brokerage, including telephone access to a representative who can help you place trades.
Q: Will I earn interest on uninvested money in my account?
A: If you choose to settle your trades through your credit union account, there will be no un-invested money within your brokerage account. Any un-invested money will remain in your credit union account and earn the interest normally paid, if any, on that account. If you choose to settle trades through the CBSI Money Market Accounts within your Brokerage Account, un-invested funds may earn competitive money market rates, once a minimum threshold has been reached and the money market is actively paying interest. To trigger interest payments, the balance in your CBSI Money Market Accounts must reach $500 in a nonqualified (regular) account, or $100 in a qualified (retirement) account. Once the threshold is reached, interest will be paid from that point on provided that the money market is actively paying interest. You do not have to maintain a minimum balance.
Q: How can I pay for trades?
A: The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) requires that all securities trades settle in no later than three business days. In some cases, some trades settle in one business day. In other words, you must pay for purchases, or deliver securities that have been sold, to your brokerage firm no later than settlement day. CUNA Brokerage offers you a choice of three convenient settlement options to help meet this timeframe:
- Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) handles the transfer of money automatically, on settlement day between your brokerage account and your credit union account.
- CBSI Money Market Accounts provide three options on regular brokerage accounts and allow you to earn competitive interest while you decide how to invest your funds.
- Direct Mail - Your check for payment must be sent to CUNA Brokerage via a method guaranteeing delivery by settlement date, made payable to Pershing LLC, our clearing company.
