Is there a limit on the number of transfers that can be done on an account?
There is a federal regulation (Reg D) which stipulates the number of unsigned transfer’s that may be made from a Savings account (or Money Market) into a Checking account per month to six. Transactions that do not count towards that limit are any transfers from Savings/Money Market into checking that are requested in person, by mail or completed at an ATM machine. There are no limitations to the number of credits an account may receive or the number of transfers out of a checking account.

Can I see how many transfers that have been done?
At this time you may see transfers on your monthly statement or by logging in and viewing your account activity online. If making a transfer online the system will notify you prior to completion if the transfer will add towards the regulated limit. While we do not have an application that will display a running count of transfers online that contribute towards the six limit, our eBranch can let you know where your count is at, either in person or over the phone.

Can I transfer money to an account at another bank electronically?
You can transfer funds using our enhanced transfers and using Person to Person payments. This is all done through the Transfers page in Online Banking.
