Same Day Debits go into Effect September 15, 2017!

Beginning September 15, 2017, withdrawals from your account will post faster than before. A change in the way the Federal Reserve processes payments will allow all checks or electronic payments to clear on the same day they are paid.

Be prepared for the change by doing the following:

  • Get in the habit now of planning for funds to clear at the time you swipe your card or write your check.
  • Check your account balance and make sure your funds are at a level to support your spending.
  • Contact us with questions you may have; we are here to help!
