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
This is a summary and generally applies when deposit amount is less than $5,000 - absent a deposit hold. See the Consumer Deposit Account Agreement, Funds Availability Disclosure, for a detailed description of our deposit hold policy.
|Dispute Resolution Agreement||If a dispute arises between us, either party 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.|
