CBC Legal Policies
Your Ability to Withdraw Funds
Our policy is to make funds from your 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 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 holidays. If you make a deposit before 4:00 PM 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 PM or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open.
Longer Delays May Apply
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 fifth business day after the day of your deposit. However, the first $100 of your deposits will be available on the first business day.
If we are not going to make all of 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.
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 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 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. They will generally be available no later than the 11th business day after the day of your deposit.
Special Rules for New Accounts
If you are a new member, the following special rules will apply during the first 30 days your account is open. Funds from electronic direct deposits to your account will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Funds from deposits of cash, wire transfers, and the first $5,000 of a day's total deposits of cashier's, certified, teller's, traveler's, and federal, state and local government checks will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit if the deposit meets certain conditions. For example, the checks must be payable to you (and you may have to use a special deposit slip). The excess over $5,000 will be available on the ninth business day after the day of your deposit. If your deposit of these checks (other than a US Treasury check) is not made in person to one of our employees, the first $5,000 will not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit.
Funds from all other check deposits will be available on the 11th business day after the day of your deposit.
Deposits at Automated Teller Machines
Funds from any deposits (cash or checks) made at automated teller machines (ATMs) we do not own or operate may not be available until the fifth business day after the day of your deposit. This rule does not apply at ATMs that we own or operate. A list of ATMs where you can make deposits but that are not owned or operated by us is available upon request.
About Our Insured Money Market Rate Account (IMMRA)
Minimum Balance and Deposit Requirements
The minimum deposit required for you to open an IMMRA is $2,000. You must maintain a minimum average daily balance of $2,000 to obtain the Annual Percentage Yield stated on the Rate Schedule and to avoid closure. If the balance in your IMMRA falls below the required minimum average daily balance of $2,000, your account will not earn dividends.
No more than six preauthorized, automatic, online or telephonic transfers made to another account at CBC Federal Credit Union or to a third party or no more than six transfers or withdrawals made by check, draft, debit card or similar order payable to a third party may be made from each savings account or money market deposit account in any calendar month. If an Account Holder exceeds, or attempts to exceed, these transfer limits, the excess transfer requests may be refused or reversed, a fee may be imposed on the excess transfer requests, and we may reclassify or close the account. Transfers initiated by telephone must be counted among the six monthly transfers, except that there are no limits on the number of withdrawals paid directly to an Account Holder when initiated by mail, telephone or messenger. There are no limits on the number of withdrawals if initiated in person.
