MEMBER PREFERRED FEDERAL CREDIT UNION FUNDS AVAILABILITY POLICY
1. GENERAL POLICY
Our policy is to make funds from your cash and check deposits available to you on the same business day that 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.
2. RESERVATION OF RIGHT TO HOLD
In some cases, we will not make all of the funds that you deposit by check available to you on the same business day that we receive your deposit. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the seventh business day after the day of your deposit. However, the first $200.00 of your deposit will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit. If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available on the same 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 action after you have left the premises, we will mail you the notice by the next business 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.
3. LONGER DELAYS MAY APPLY
We may delay your ability to withdraw funds deposited by check into your account an additional number of days for these reasons:
* We believe a check you deposit will not be paid
* You deposit checks totaling more than $5,000 on any one day
* You deposit a check that has been returned unpaid
* You have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the last six (6) months * There is an emergency, such as failure of communications or computer equipment
* Other reasons that we may deem necessary
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 eleventh business day after the day of your deposit.
4. FOREIGN CHECKS
Checks drawn on financial institutions located outside the U.S. (Foreign checks) cannot be processed the same as checks drawn on U.S. financial institutions. Foreign checks are exempt from the policies outlined in this disclosure. Generally, the availability of funds for deposits of foreign checks will be delayed for the time it takes us to collect the funds from the financial institutions upon which it is drawn.
