In TISA disclosures must we disclose amount to earn APY if there is no minimum to earn APY? We do require a minimum opening amount but will pay interest on any amount greater than 0.

I can't find anything that says you don't have to, just that you do, so I disclose the $0 figure, just to make sure that there are no misunderstandings.

The regulation requires that you disclose "any minimum balance" to obtain the APY, and says that all disclosures are to be made "as applicable." That means "if it don't apply, you needn't supply."

Since there is no minimum balance to earn the APY, you do not need to disclose one, IMHO. But the $0 amount disclosure is not a problem.
