Processing Policies
Posting Order
The order in which withdrawals and deposits are processed

We process and post transactions - both credits (including deposits) and debits - throughout the day. This approach allows us to more closely match the posting of transactions on your account with the timing of your actual account activity.
Note: Deposits received and posted late in the day will not cover payments and withdrawals posted earlier the same day.

Summary of Our Deposit Hold Policy
When funds deposited to your account are usually available for deposits less than $5,525 and absent exceptional circumstances - see the Account Agreement for a detailed description of our policy.
  • Cash deposit with Teller or ATM: same business day as the day of deposit
  • Direct deposit or wire transfer: same business day as the day of deposit
  • Check deposit with Teller or ATM: same business day as the day of deposit
  • Remote Deposit Capture: same business day as the day of deposit
  • If something causes a longer hold on a deposit, the first $225 of that deposit will generally be made available the same business day as the day of deposit.

A "business day" is a non-holiday weekday. At branches, business days end at closing time and at ATMs business days end no earlier than 1 pm. Remote Deposit Capture business days end at 8 pm CST.

Dispute Resolution
Dispute Resolution Agreement

If a dispute arises between us, you or we may require that it be resolved through arbitration, rather than through jury trial. Please see the arbitration and waiver of jury trial provisions in your Consumer Deposit Account Agreement for additional details.

Miscellaneous Fees and Charges
