Account Updates

Excessive Transaction Charges for Savings and Money Market Accounts

As you may be aware, for an account to be classified as a savings or money market account, by law financial institutions need to monitor the account and limit “convenient” withdrawals and transfers from the account to six (6) per statement cycle. We previously charged $15 per item exceeding those limits, starting after the notification that you had reached your monthly limit. After conversion, we will begin to charge $15 per item exceeding those limits, beginning with the 7th convenient withdrawal or transfer out of your savings or money market account per statement cycle, with a daily limit of no more than 3 excessive transaction fees.

“Convenient” transfers and withdrawals, for purposes of this limit, include preauthorized, automatic (including, but not limited to, transfers from the savings or money market deposit for overdraft protection or for direct bill payments), and electronic transfers and withdrawals (including those initiated by telephone, online banking, email, or our mobile app), and transfers made by check, debit card, or other similar order made by the depositor and payable to third parties. Other, less convenient types of transfers and withdrawals from savings or money market accounts are not subject to the limit. An unlimited number of transfers and withdrawals may be made from a savings or money market account when made in person at the bank, by mail, or by using an ATM.

New VIP (Very Important Purpose) Club Account Designation and Renewal Process

With our new system, we are re-designating all of our VIP (Very Important Purpose) Club Accounts as savings accounts, as opposed to time accounts.This is primarily a regulatory designation that does not affect your use of the account, however, we are required to disclose this change to you. In conjunction with this change, we are eliminating any early withdrawal penalty within the first 10 days after account opening, the renewal of the account after maturity date, or for withdrawals up to the amount of a deposit within 10 days after the deposit. Any account agreement or disclosure you have previously been given for your VIP account is automatically modified to eliminate any fee for withdrawals in these instances. As a savings account, your VIP Club account will be subject to the excessive transaction limitations for savings accounts, which limits savings account customers to 6 “convenient” transfers or withdrawals from their savings account per statement cycle, and we are also reserving the right to require not less than 7 days’ notice in writing before each withdrawal (the law requires us to reserve this right, but it is not our general policy to use it).

One other change we are making to this account is that after our conversion, you will not get an annual renewal notice. As a reminder, you are still able to change the deposit schedule and amounts at any time.

Funds Availability Disclosure

Your Ability to Withdraw Funds

Our policy is to make funds from your cash and check deposits available to you on 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 the funds in cash and we will use the funds to pay checks that you have written.

For determining the availability of your deposits, every day is a business day, except Saturdays, Sundays and federal holidays. If you make a deposit at one of our community banking offices, before the end of business day cutoff, which coincides with our community banking office hours, on a business day we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit after these cutoff times, or on a day that 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 that you deposit by check available to you on the day of your deposit. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit. The first $225 of your deposits, however, may be available on the same business day.

If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available on the day of your deposit, 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 a notice by the day after we receive your deposit.

If you will 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 $5,525 on any one day.
  • You redeposit a check that has been returned unpaid.
  • You have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the last six months.
  • There is an emergency, such as failure of computer or communications equipment.

We will notify you if we delay your ability to withdraw funds for any reason, and we will tell you when the funds will be available. Funds will generally be available no later than the seventh business day after the day of deposit.

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 $5,525 of a day’s total deposits of cashier’s, certified, teller’s, traveler’s, and federal, state and local government checks will be available to you on the day we receive your deposit. For example, the checks must be payable to you (and you may have to use a special deposit slip). The excess over $5,525 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 $5,525 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 ninth business day after the day of your deposit.
