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 wereceive your deposit. Electronic direct deposits will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Once the funds areavailable, 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 Please remember that even after we have made funds available to you and you have withdrawn the funds, you are stillresponsible for checks you deposit that are returned to us unpaid and for any other problems involving your deposit.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 closing on a business day that we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of yourdeposit. However, if you make a deposit after closing or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit wasmade on the next business day we are open. If we cash a check for you that is drawn on another bank, we may withhold the availability of a corresponding amount offunds that are already in your accounts. Those funds will be available at the time funds from the check we cashed would havebeen available if you had deposited it. If we accept for deposit a check that is drawn on another bank, we may make funds from the deposit available for withdrawalimmediately but delay your availability to withdraw a corresponding amount of funds that you have on deposit in the accountto which the deposit is made. The funds in the account would then not be available for withdrawal until the time periods thatare described elsewhere in this disclosure for the type of check that you deposited.
