  • For Rollover Type, the aggregate sum of principal and after-tax interest thereon shall be automatically renewed for successive 2 weeks, and the interest rate which is posted as of the renewal of 2 Weeks Maturity Foreign Currency Deposit shall apply. If the depositor has applied for Cancellation Type, the principal and after-tax interest shall be remitted to the depositor's PowerFlex foreign currency savings deposit in the same currency on the subsequent maturity date immediately after such application, and the posted interest rate on such savings deposit shall apply on and after the maturity day.
