Business Funds Availability Policy
BUSINESS FUNDS AVAILABILITY POLICY
This policy statement applies to all business deposit accounts.
Our policy is to make funds from check deposits available to you on the first business day after we receive your deposit. Electronic direct deposits and the first $200 from a deposit of checks will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Once the funds are available, you can withdraw them in cash and we will use the funds to pay checks that you have written. Funds from cash deposits are available immediately or as otherwise described in this policy.
Please remember that even after we have made funds available to you, and you have withdrawn the funds, you are still responsible for checks you deposit that are returned to us unpaid and for any other problems involving your deposit.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 Sundays, and federal holidays. If you make a deposit before the cut-off time 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 the cut-off time or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open. The time of day that we post the cut-off notice may vary by branch. In no event, however, will the cut-off time be earlier than 2:00 P.M.
If you make a deposit at an ATM that is owned and operated by us before 7:00 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 at an ATM after 7:00 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.
If we cash a check for you that is drawn on another bank, we may withhold the availability of a corresponding amount of funds that are already in your account. Those funds will be available at the time funds from the check we cashed would have been 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 withdrawal immediately but delay your availability to withdraw a corresponding amount of funds that you have on deposit in another account with us. The funds in the other account would then not be available for withdrawal until the time periods that are described elsewhere in this disclosure for the type of check that you deposited.
LONGER DELAYS MAY APPLY
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 computer or communications 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 fourth business day after the day of your deposit.
If you deposit a check drawn on a bank outside the United States and not payable through a U.S. branch or bank, we will make these funds available when we receive notification of payment.
Deposits made at a Night Depository are considered as received on the next business day.
BUSINESS MOBILE DEPOSIT
For determining the availability of your mobile deposit, every day is a business day except Saturdays, Sundays and federal holidays. Deposits made through our CSB Business Mobile Deposit service are not considered electronic direct deposits for purposes of funds availability. Deposits made through CSB Business Mobile Deposit are considered to be made in Cambridge, Massachusetts with a 7:00 P.M. Eastern cut-off time. Any deposit made through CSB Mobile Deposit received and confirmed before 7:00 P.M. Eastern cut-off time Monday through Friday will be credited to your account the same day with the first $200 from a deposit of checks available that same day. Deposits made through CSB Mobile Deposit which are initiated after 7:00 P.M. Eastern cut-off time and any such deposits initiated on Saturdays Sundays, federal holidays or days that are not our business days, will be received, processed and credited to your account on the following business day that we are open.
