Funds Availability Policy
YOUR ABILITY TO WITHDRAW FUNDS
This policy statement applies to all deposit accounts. 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 the funds are available, you can withdraw them in cash and we will use the funds to pay checks that you have written
Please remember that even after we have made funds available to you, and you have withdrawn the funds, you are still responsible for checks you deposit that are returned to us unpaid and for any other problems involving your deposit.
For determining the availability of your deposits, every day is a business day, except Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays. If you make a deposit before 4:00 P.M. 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 4:00 P.M. or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open.
If you made a deposit at an ATM before 2:00 P.M. 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 at an ATM after 2:00 P.M. or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open.
ON OTHER FUNDS (CHECK CASHING)
If we cash a check for you that is drawn on another bank, we may withhold the availability of the 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.
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 this disclosure for the type of check that you deposited.
LONGER DELAYS MAY APPLY
Case-by-case delays. In some cases, we will not make all of the funds that 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 second business day after the day of your deposit. The first $200.00 of your deposits, however, may be available on the first business day.
If we are not going to make all 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 will need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask us when the funds will be available.
Safeguard exceptions. 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 $5,000.00 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 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.
DEPOSITS AT AUTOMATED TELLER MACHINES
Availability of funds from any deposits (cash or checks) made at automated teller machines (ATMs) we do not own or operate may take up to five business days after the day of your deposit. This rule does not apply at ATMs that we own or operate.
ATMs we own are located at our banking facilities at 630 Main Street, 846 Freeport Avenue Elk River, MN 55330; 15800 88th Street NE, Otsego, MN 55330; Wal-Mart Elk River, 18185 Zane Street NW, Elk River, MN 55330 and 26319 2nd Street E, Zimmerman, MN 55398.
