Funds Availability Policy

FUNDS AVAILABILITY POLICY

Our policy is to make funds from your cash and check deposits available to you on the first business day after the day we receive your deposit. Electronic direct deposits will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Once they are available you can withdraw funds in cash and we will use the funds to pay checks you have written. For determining the availability of your deposits, every day is a business day, except Saturday, Sunday, and federal holidays. If you make a deposit before 3:00pm on a business day that we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit after 3:00pm, or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open.  

Longer Delays May Apply:
In some cases, we will not make all of the funds you deposit by check available to you on the first business day after the day of your deposit. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the third business day after the day of your deposit. However, the first $200 of your deposits will be available on the first business day.

 
If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available on the first business day, we will notify you at the time you make your deposit. We will also tell you when the funds will be available. If your deposit is not made directly to one of our employees, or if we decide to take this action after you have left the premises, we will mail you the notice by the day after we receive your deposit. If you need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask us when the funds will be available.
In addition, funds you deposit by check may be delayed for a longer period under the following circumstances:
 

  • We believe a check you deposit will not be paid.  
  • You deposit checks totaling more than $5,000 on any one day.
  • You redeposit a check that has been returned unpaid.
  • You have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the last 6 months. 
  • There is an emergency, such as failure of communications or computer equipment.
  • We will notify you if we delay your ability to withdraw funds for any of these reasons, and we will tell you when the funds will be available.  They will generally be available no later than the seventh business day after the day of your deposit.

    Holds on Other Funds (Check Cashing):

    If we cash a check for you that is drawn on another bank, we may withhold the availability of a corresponding amount of funds that are already in your account.  Those funds will be available at the time funds from the check we cashed would have been available if you had deposited it. 

    Special Rules for New Accounts:

    If you are a new customer, the following special rules will apply during the first 30 days your account is open. 

    Funds from electronic direct deposits to your account will be available on the day we receive the deposit.  Funds from deposits of cash, wire transfers, and the first $5,000 of a day's total deposit of cashier's certified, teller's, traveler's and federal, state and local government checks will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit if the deposit meets certain conditions. 

    For example, the checks must be payable to you and you may have to use a special deposit slip.  The excess over $5,000 will be available on the ninth business day after the day of your deposit.  If your deposit of these checks (other than a U.S. Treasury check) is not made in person to one of our employees, the first $5,000 will not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit.

    Funds from all other check deposits will be available on the eleventh business day after the day of your deposit.

    Holds On Other Funds (Other Account):

    If we accept for deposit a check that is drawn on another bank, we may make funds from the deposit available for withdrawal immediately but delay your availability to withdraw a corresponding amount of funds that you have on deposit in another account with us.  The funds in the other account would then not be available for withdrawal until the time periods that are described elsewhere in the disclosure for the type of check that you deposited. 

    Check Withdrawal Limitations:

    We place certain limitations on withdrawals in cash.  In general, $200 of a deposit is available for withdrawal in cash on the first business day after the day of deposit.  In addition, a total of $400 of other funds becoming available on a given day is available for withdrawal in cash at or after 5:00pm on that day.  Any remaining funds will be available for withdrawal in cash on the following business day.
