After providing for payment of expenses of operation of the association and for the required minimum transfer to its loss reserves, the board of directors of an association may declare dividends or pay interest on savings accounts not to exceed four times a year. An association need not pay or credit a dividend or pay interest of less than one dollar ($1.00) on any account or any dividend or interest on short term accounts where the savings contract provides for closing the account within one year and waives dividend or interest participation. Dividends or interest shall be credited to savings accounts on the books of the association unless, upon written request of a savings account holder, the association agrees to pay dividends or interest in cash. Dividends or interest payable in cash may be paid by check or bank draft.
