FUNDS WILL BE HELD 9 BUSINESS DAYS BEGINNING THE BUSINESS DAY OF DEPOSIT

  • New account check deposits made payable to you that do not meet same day availability
    parameters.

  • For determining availability of your deposits, every day is a business day, except Saturday, Sunday and Federal holidays. If you make a deposit before closing 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 closing or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made the next business day we are open.
  • After we have made funds available to you, and you have withdrawn the funds, you are still responsible for checks you deposit that are returned to us unpaid and for any other problems involving your deposit.
  • Funds you deposit by check may be delayed for a longer period under the following circumstances:
      • (1) We believe a check you deposit will not be paid.
      • (2) You re-deposited a check that has been returned unpaid.
      • (3) You have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the last six months.
        (4) There is an emergency, such as failure of communication 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.
      1. (5) Other case by case circumstances.
  • Checks deposited through Mobile Banking are subject to the Funds Availability Policy.
  • We do not accept third party checks.
  • We do not accept improperly endorsed jointly held checks.
  • We do not accept post-dated checks.
  • 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 would be available at the time funds from the check we cashed would have been available if you had deposited it.
  • 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 in the above funds availability disclosure for the type of check that you deposited.
