Click here to magnify


This screen appears when you select "Add New" (F6) on the initial account service charge listing screen or when you select an existing transaction service charge and then Programs Settings and Criteria, View or Copy.

This screen is used to control when the fee is charged (daily, monthly or annually) and the selection parameters that determine which account type will incur the fee. Start by completing the fields at the top of the screen (described below).  If annually is selected (for example, to charge an IRA account a yearly handling fee), select whether to charge the fee on the anniversary month the account was opened (last day of the month) or the same date for all accounts.

Then add or modify the conditions.  (See below for more information.)

When you are finished, use Save/Done to advance to the Fee Waiver screen, or return to the original listing.

Modifying Existing Conditions

It is not possible to delete a condition from the middle of the list. Try changing the condition parameters, or mark the condition just prior to that with “End” to remove all conditions from that point down, then append new records to the end of the list.

Step for Using this Screen

Use the following steps to enter the desired conditions on this screen. (HINT: This is similar to the “Select Records” logic used by the CU*BASE Report Builder.)

  1. Select a field - This screen lists all of the commonly-used fields used for service charges. Select one of these fields and use Enter to proceed to the next screen.

  2. Specify conditions - This screen is used to specify the conditions for the selected field. Choose one comparison option (equal to, greater than, etc.) and enter the data value for the comparison.

  3. If there will be additional conditions for this service charge, choose either “And” or “Or” to set up the next condition:

  1. Press Enter to continue. If “And” or “Or” was selected, the field selection screen will reappear; repeat starting with step 1 until all conditions are entered. If “End” was selected, the Program Number screen will reappear.

Activate this service charge program

Leave this box unchecked to test the service charge before it is implemented. This can be used in conjunction with the Run Audit feature on the previous screen to test as program before it is activated.

This can also be unchecked to suspend a service charge without deleting it.  If this box is unchecked, it will not post a fee to a member's account.

Check this box to activate a service charge so it posts fees to member's accounts.  If this box is checked, it will post fees to member's accounts during the normal posting programs.

Generate notice when posting to member

Check this to generate a notice to be sent to the member when the fee is posted.  The notice text cannot be changed and the exact text is covered in back section of the Member Notices: Configuring and Printing CU-Defined Notices and e-Notices booklet.
