Effective July 1, 2020
Your Ability To Withdraw Funds At Olympia Credit Union
Our policy is to make funds from your deposits available to you on the same business day we receive your deposit. At that time, you can withdraw the funds in cash and/or 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 before 5:30 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 5:30 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.
Reservation Of Right To Hold
In some cases, we will not make all the funds that you deposit by check available to you on the same business day as 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. However, the first $225 of your deposit will be available on the first business day of your deposit. If we are not going to make all 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 this action after you have left the premises, we will mail you the notice by the business day after we receive your deposit. If you need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask us when funds would be available.
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:
- You deposit checks totaling more than $5525 on any one day.
- You re-deposit a check that has been returned unpaid.
- You have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the last six months.
- We believe a check you deposit will not be paid.
- 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.
Holds On Other Funds
If we cash a check for you that are drawn on another financial institution, 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. If we accept for deposit a check that is drawn on another financial institution, 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 will generally be available no later than the seventh business day after the date of deposit.
