A Note About Dormant Accounts
Please ensure that there are transactions on your accounts every 6 months.
Capital Area’s policy requires that when a deposit account goes below $200 and there is no activity for six (6) months, the account becomes “inactive” or “Dormant” and is charge a $5 monthly fee until the account is activated. A deposit of just a dollar every 6 months will keep the account active.
Please remember that this is NOT our goal to fee your account. It is our goal to ensure that your account is not termed “dormant” as described by Maine Law. If the account remains inactive for three (3) years, the account then becomes abandoned and the monies at that time (by Law) have to be turned over to the State of Maine as unclaimed property.
If you have an inactive account please activate it as soon as possible to avoid the monthly charge of $5 and avoid your funds from being defined as “abandoned”.
