This disclosure describes your ability to withdraw funds from all your accounts at Waterbury Postal Employees Federal Credit Union.
Our policy is to make funds from your cash and check deposits available to you on the same business day that 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. 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 4:00PM on a business day that we are open, we will consider that day to be 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 thirty (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, teller's, traveler’s, and Federal, state, and local government checks will be available on the next business day after the day of your deposit if the deposit meets certain conditions. For example, the checks must be payable to you. The excess over $5,000 will be available on the sixth (6th) business day after the day of your deposit. If your deposit of these checks (other than a U.S. Treasury check) is not made in person to one of our employees, the first $5,000 will not be available until the second (2nd) business day after the day of your deposit. Funds from all other check deposits will be available on the sixth (6th) business day after the day of your deposit.
