parda federal credit union funds availability disclosure
NOTICE TO DEPOSITORS – regarding your ability to withdraw funds at PARDA Federal Credit
Union. This disclosure contains information about your deposits, holds and withdrawals. The Expedited
Funds Availability Act, implemented by Regulation CC, requires us to give you this disclosure.
Our Funds Availability Policy applies to deposits made into your accounts. We may delay your ability to withdraw funds from a deposit, you may not be allowed to withdraw funds in cash or other negotiable means, and we will not pay checks you write on your account by using these delayed funds. Even after you have withdrawn the funds, you are still responsible for checks you deposit or cash that are returned to us unpaid and for any other problems involving your deposit.
For purposes of this disclosure, the terms: “you” or “your” refer to the depositor and the terms “our” “we” or “us” refer to PARDA Federal Credit Union.
Determining Availability of Your Deposits
For determining the availability of your deposits, every day is a business day except, Saturdays, Sundays and federally declared legal holidays. The “banking day” portion is that part of the “business day” in
which we are open for business and may determine the availability of your funds. If you make your deposit
before or during our banking day, consider that day to be the day of your deposit. If you make your deposit
after our banking day, consider the next business day to be the day of your deposit. The length of the
delay varies depending on the type of deposit, which is explained below.
Same Day Availability
It is our policy to make the following types of deposits available to you on the banking day of deposit:
• Electronic direct deposits
• Wire Transfers
• U.S. Treasury Checks made payable to you
• Checks drawn off an account at PARDA Federal Credit Union
• State and Local Government checks payable to you
• Cashier’s, Certified or Teller’s checks payable to you
• Federal Reserve, Federal Home Loan Bank checks and U.S. Postal Money Orders payable to you
• Personal checks of $200 or less, or an aggregate amount of $200 or less.
Once the funds are available, you can withdraw the funds in cash and/or we will use the funds to pay share drafts (checks) that you have written.
Other Check Deposits
The first $200 from a deposit of other types of checks not listed above will be made available on the same
day of deposit. The remaining funds will be available on the second business day following the banking
day of deposit.
For example, if $300 was deposited by check on Tuesday, $200 will be available on Wednesday. The remaining $100 will be available on Thursday.
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 same
day of deposit. Depending on the type of check deposited, funds may not be available until the seventh
business day after the banking day of your deposit. However, the first $200.00 will be available on the
same day of deposit.
If we are not going to make all of your check deposit funds available, 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 made by mail, or we decide to take this action after you have left the branch, we will mail you notification by the day after the decision has been made to place a hold.
Checks subject to delayed availability include:
• Your account has been opened for less than 30 days
• Check(s) being deposited we believe to be uncollectible
• Amount of total check deposits made in one day in excess of $5,000.00
• Check(s) being redeposited that were returned as “unpaid”
• You have overdrawn your account repeatedly within the past six month period
• An emergency condition does not allow us to make funds available to you, such as computer and/or communication failure.
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 seventh 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
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, travelers, and federal, state and local government checks will be available on the first business day after the banking 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 deposit 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 banking day of your deposit.
Funds from all other check deposits will be available on the ninth business day after the banking day of your deposit.

Union are subject to the terms and conditions described above. If you make a deposit at an ATM that is
