FUNDS AVAILABILITY POLICY -- Wednesday, May 11 2011
YOUR ABILITY TO WITHDRAW FUNDS
Under normal circumstances, our policy is to make funds from your deposits available to you immediately. At that time, you can withdraw the funds and we will use the funds to pay share drafts that you have written. In some cases, there may be delays in availability. See below:
For determining the availability of your deposits, every day is a business day, except Saturday’s, Sunday’s and Federal Holidays. If you make a deposit before 4:00 p.m. 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 p.m. 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 immediately. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit. However, the first $200 of your deposits will be available on the first business day.
In addition, funds you deposit by check may be delayed for a longer period under the following circumstances:
a. We believe a check you deposit will not be paid.
b. You deposit checks totaling more than $5,000.00 on any one day.
c. You redeposit a check that has been returned unpaid.
d. You have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the last six months.
e. There is an emergency, such as failure of communications or computer equipment.
If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available immediately, we will notify you at the time you make the 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.
New accounts shall be subject to the same Funds Availability Policy that established accounts are subject to.

OPT OUT OF CREDIT CARD OFFERS & PHONE SOLICITATIONS -- Thursday, February 4 2010
Stop those dinnertime phone calls permanently by logging on to www.donotcall.gov and entering your home phone number or by calling 1-888-382-1222.
You can also stop all the credit card offers that you get in the mail by logging on to www.optoutprescreen.com or by calling 1-888-567-8688. You can choose to opt out permanently or for 5 years.
Opt-out Notice Rule Takes Effect August 1
Beginning August 1, 2005, financial institutions and other companies that send “prescreened” solicitations of credit or insurance to consumers will be required to provide simple and easy-to-understand notices that explain consumers’ right to opt-out of receiving future offers. The FTC, as required by FACTA, issued a Final Rule on January 31, 2005, which specified the format, type size, and manner for these opt-out notices.
If consumers decide that they don’t want to receive prescreened offers of credit and insurance, there are two choices: (1) opt-out of receiving them for five years; or (2) opt-out of receiving them permanently. Consumers can call toll-free 1-888-5-OPTOUT (1-888-567-8688) or visit www.optoutprescreen.com for details. The telephone number and Web site are operated by the major consumer reporting companies. When calling, or visiting the Web site, consumers will be asked to provide certain personal information, including home telephone number, name, Social Security Number, and date of birth. The information provided is confidential and will be used only to process the request to opt-out.
