Funds Availability Policy

This policy provides information to allow you to determine when funds you deposit or receive at NYTEFCU are available to pay checks or be withdrawn in cash. It is applicable to your account(s) with us unless you receive notice that a different policy applies. Most deposits require some period of time to "clear" because it takes us time to determine whether the deposited items will be paid. The time it takes varies with the kind of deposit involved, the location of the source of the funds, or both. Therefore, it is necessary to delay the availability of funds while collection is in progress. During the delay, you may not withdraw the funds and we will not use the funds to pay checks that you have written.

Determining the Availability of a Deposit. The length of the delay is counted in business days from the day of your deposit. Every day (except Saturday, Sunday, and a federal holiday) is a business day. If you make a deposit at any of our offices or ATMs on a business day that we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. If you make a deposit at one our ATMs on a day we are closed, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open. Unless this policy specifically provides otherwise, funds available on a business day are available 9:00 a.m. on that day.

Same Day Availability. Funds from electronic direct deposits to your account will be available on the day we receive the deposit.

Next-day Availability. Funds from the following deposits are available on the first business day after the day of your deposit:

  • U.S. Treasury checks that are payable to you.
  • Wire Transfers.
  • Checks drawn on us.

If you make the deposit in person to one of our employees, funds from the following deposits are also available on the first business day after the day of your deposit:

  • Cash
  • State and local government checks that are payable to you.
  • Cashier's, certified, and teller's checks that are payable to you.
  • Federal Reserve Bank checks, Federal Home Loan Bank checks, and postal money orders, if these items are payable to you. If you do not make your deposit in person to one of our employees (for example, if you mail the deposit), funds from these deposits will be available on the second business day after the day of your deposit.

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 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 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 business day after the day of your deposit. Funds from all other check deposits will be available on the 30th business day after the day of your deposit.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  • This policy does not apply to checks drawn on banks outside the United States, its territories and possessions.
  • We reserve the right to reject any deposit or to accept checks for collection only.
  • We reserve the right to refuse any check containing multiple endorsements when one or more endorser in unknown to us.
  • NYTEFCU's additional regulations applicable for each type of account remain in effect, and are available upon request.

The electronic funds transfers which are covered by this Agreement are: (i.) the direct deposit of Social Security checks and other recurring payments from governmental agencies; direct deposit of payroll, payroll deductions or other payments from a company, using the Automated Clearing House (ACH); payments you have , by agreement with a third party, authorized to be made by debit to your Checking account (an example would be insurance premiums); (ii) transactions made at STAR machines including deposits or transfers to Share, Checking and Money Market accounts, withdrawals or transfers from Share, Checking or Money Market accounts, loans payments made by cash or by transferring funds from a Share or Checking account and advances on your Line-of-Credit; (iii) transactions made at ATMs including transfers to Share and Checking accounts, withdrawals or transfers from Share and Checking accounts, and advances on your Line-of-Credit; (iv) payment for purchases at merchants that have agreed to accept the ATM Card or Debit Card (referred to as Point-of-Sale or "POS" transactions); (v) transactions made using Infoline including inquiries to obtain account balances on share and loan accounts, transfers of funds from Share, Money Market and Checking accounts (transfers from Share and Money Market are limited to six (6) per month), transfer of funds to Share accounts, transfer of advances from unsecured lines of credit to Share or Checking accounts (minimum amount $100.00, maximum amount $10,000), transfer of loan payments from either Share or Checking, inquiries as the whether a specific check has cleared against your Checking account, inquiries as to the last 15 transactions on Share and Loan accounts, requests for withdrawal checks from Share accounts (minimum amount $5.00 - maximum $10,000.00), and advance checks from unsecured Lines of Credit (minimum $100 - maximum $10,000). Note: Checks will be mailed only to the address appearing in our records; (vi) transactions made at our Information Terminals including inquiries to obtain Share, Loan or Certificate balances, and inquiries as to whether either a specific check has cleared your Checking account, or as to the last 5 checks which have cleared your account.
  3. Your ATM Card and Debit Card: To perform electronic funds transfers at STAR machines or ATM's, in addition to your ATM Card or Debit Card, you will be required to use your PIN. To perform POS transactions you may be required to use your PIN or sign a sales draft. We will send you a PIN by mail after we send you your ATM Card or Debit Card. You may use this PIN or you may encode a PIN that you select at one of our offices. It is important to remember this number and to prevent others from discovering it since, if someone else obtains your PIN and ATM Card or Debit Card, he/she can make withdrawals from your accounts. If you do not want to use the ATM Card or Debit Card, you should destroy it at once by cutting it in half. If you authorize us to issue an ATM Card or Debit Card (or any other access device) to anyone else, you authorize that individual to withdraw funds from any account (including a Line-of-Credit account) which can be accessed by the ATM Card or Debit Card, regardless of whether that individual is authorized to withdraw money from the account by any means other than by use of the ATM Card or Debit Card.
  4. Your PIN: In order to use Infoline or our Information Terminals, you must use the PIN which we send you. If you do not want to use this PIN, destroy the PIN notification form when you receive it from us. It is important to remember this number and to prevent others from discovering it since, if someone else obtains your PIN, he/she can make transactions, including withdrawals from your accounts. If you authorize us to issue a PIN (or any other access device) to anyone else, you authorize that individual to withdraw funds from any account (including a Line-of-Credit account) which can be accessed by Infoline, regardless of whether that individual is authorized to withdraw money from the account by any means other than by the use of ARU.
  5. Making Electronic Funds Transfers: You agree to follow the instructions posted or otherwise given by us for use of our STAR machines, ATMs, Infoline or our Information Terminals.
  6. Limitations on STAR and ATM Withdrawals: Each day you may withdraw up to a maximum of five hundred ($500.00) dollars in cash at a STAR machine or ATM, fifteen hundred ($1,500) dollars when using your Debit Card for POS transactions done in person at a merchant location. Subject to the following conditions: (1) at the time you use your ATM Card or Debit Card, the POS terminals, STAR machines or ATMs are "on-line" to our computer system; (2) you have sufficient funds in your Share account or Checking account or available under your Line-of-Credit; (3) advances under your Line-of-Credit must be in minimum increments of one hundred ($100) dollars. If the STAR machine, ATM or POS terminal is not "on-line" at the time you use the machine or attempt the transaction, you will be limited to a daily aggregate withdrawal of (i.) two hundred ($200.00) dollars when using your ATM Card or Debit Card at a STAR machine or ATM or; (ii) two hundred ($200.00) dollars when using your ATM Card for POS transactions or; (iii) five hundred ($500.00) dollars when using your Debit Card for POS transactions done in person at a merchant location or; (iv) two hundred ($200.00) dollars when using your Debit Card for POS transactions that you do not do in person at the merchant location. Once you have withdrawn two hundred ($200.00) dollars or more with your ATM Card or five hundred ($500.00) dollars or more with your Debit Card, you will be unable to obtain any additional funds if, subsequently, the STAR machines, ATMs, or merchants are not on-line that same day.
  7. Verification and Availability of STAR Machine Transactions: All deposits and loan payments made at any of our STAR machines will be provisionally credited subject to subsequent verification and collection. Please refer to our rules governing funds availability for further details about the availability of deposits made at our STAR machines.
  8. Withdrawal of Unavailable Funds: If you use an ATM Card or Debit Card to withdraw funds and we later determine you had insufficient funds in the account you used for this transaction, or for any other reason the withdrawal may not be processed, you authorize us to withdraw the amount of insufficient funds from any other accounts you have with us or to process an advance against your available Line-of-Credit in an amount equal to the amount of insufficient funds. If, at that time, by following these procedures we are unable to obtain reimbursement, you will be charged a fee of twenty-five ($25) dollars for each improper withdrawal and you agree to pay us the monies you owe us including the applicable fee within 24 hours after we notify you. You agree that we may continue to follow these procedures to obtain reimbursement of the monies you owe us, including the applicable fee.
  9. Receipts: You will receive a receipt for each transaction that is made at a STAR machine, ATM Information Terminal or POS location. You will not receive a receipt for transactions performed using Infoline.
  10. Information Disclosure: We will discuss information to third parties about your account or the transactions you engage in: (a) where it is necessary for completing transactions, or (b) in order to verify the existence and condition of your account for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant, or (c) in order to comply with government agency or court orders, subpoenas and other legal documents, or (d) if you give us your written permission.

You will not receive any notice from us other than your monthly statement of account. 13. Pre-authorized Credits-Social Security Payments: If you have arranged to have Social Security payments made directly to your NYTEFCU account, the deposit will be reflected on your monthly Statement of Account. If you need to verify that the deposit was made prior to receiving your monthly statement, you may do so by calling (212) 354-0351.
  13. Pre-authorized Debits: You may make arrangements with other companies to make payments to them out of your Checking account. You will not receive any notice from us other than your monthly Statement of Account. If these regular payments may vary in amount, the person you are going to pay will tell you 10 days before each payment, when it will be made and how much it will be. You may choose instead to get this notice only when the payment would differ by more than a certain amount from the previous payment, or when the amount would fall outside certain limits that you set.
  14. Your Right to Stop Payment of Pre- authorized Debits and How to Do So: If you have told us in advance to make regular payments out of your account, you can stop any of these payments. Here's how: Call us at (212) 354-0351, or write us at 620 Eighth Avenue, 28th Floor, New York, NY 10018, in time for us to receive your request three business days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made. If you call, we may also require you to put your request in writing and get it to us within 14 days after you call. If you order us to stop one of these payments three business days or more before the transfer is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.
  15. In Case of Errors or Questions About Your Electronic Transfer: Telephone us at (212) 354-0351 or write to us at 620 Eighth Avenue, 28th Floor, New York, NY 10018, Attention: Reconciliation Department, as soon as you can if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transaction listed on the statement or receipt. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent you the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared. 1)Tell us your name and account number; 2) Describe the error or the transaction you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information; 3) Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error. If you tell us orally, we require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days. We will tell you the results of our investigation within 10 business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will re-credit your account within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we do not receive your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days, we may not re-credit your account. If we decide that there was no error, we will withdraw the amount we had credited back to your account and send you a written explanation within three business days after we finish our investigation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
  1. Your Liabilities for Unauthorized Transactions: Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your ATM Card, Debit Card, or PIN, has been lost, stolen or discovered by an unauthorized person. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. If you tell us within two business days that your Debit Card is lost or stolen, you will not be liable for any losses. If you do not report the loss or theft of your Debit Card within two days, you will be liable for up to fifty ($50.00) dollars. If you do NOT tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your ATM Card or PIN and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your ATM Card or PIN without your permission if you had told us, you can lose as much as five hundred ($500.00) dollars. Also, if your statement shows transactions that you did not make, tell us AT ONCE. If you do NOT tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods. If you authorize someone else to use your ATM Card or Debit Card or PIN, you are responsible for ALL transactions which that person initiates at any time, even if the amount of the transaction exceeds what you authorized.
  2. Our Liability for Failure to Complete Transactions: If we do not properly complete a transaction on time or in the correct amount according to this Agreement, we may be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable if: (a) through no fault of ours, your account does not contain enough money (or sufficient collected funds) to complete the transaction; (b) in the case of direct deposit, through no fault of ours, the other parties to the transaction fail to initiate it; (c) your account is frozen because of a court order or similar reason; (d) the STAR machine or ATM where you are making the money does not have enough cash; (e) the STAR machine, ATM, Infoline or our terminal or other electronic funds transfer system was not working properly and you knew this at the time you started the transfer; (f) the transaction would exceed your Line-of-Credit; (g) your ATM Card, Debit Card or PIN has been reported lost or stolen and we have blocked the account; (h) circumstances beyond our control prevent the transaction, despite reasonable precautions we have taken.
