You can use the Online Services seven days a week, 24 hours a day; however, some or all features may not be available occasionally due to emergencies, maintenance, or upgrades.

If you originate a funds transfer and you identify by name and number a Financial Institution and beneficiary, we and every receiving or beneficiary Financial Institution, may rely on the identifying number to make payment. We may rely on the number even if it identifies a Financial Institution, person, or account other than the one named. You agree to be bound by the National Automated Clearinghouse Association rules (“NACHA Rules”). The NACHA Rules provide, among other things, that payments made to you, or originated by you, are provisional until final settlement is made through a Federal Reserve Bank. If we do not receive such payment, we are entitled to a refund from you in the amount credited to your account, and the party originating such payment will not be considered to have paid the amount credited. If we receive a payment order to credit an account by wire or ACH, we are not required to give you any notice of the payment order or credit.
Cut off times do apply to Funds Transfers which could impact their availability.
External transfers may or may not be included with your Online Services and this may be limited by your access method, Access Device, qualifying Account, entity type, elected/enrolled services, or additional agreements.
As part of the enrollment process to conduct external transfers, you will need to request approval to add External Account(s). You agree that you will attempt to register only External Accounts that you have the authority to conduct transfer capabilities. Transfers to External Account(s) are subject to certain limitations. Any dollar limits imposed will apply to the total of all transfers to a specific External Account on any given day. Any transfer initiated on a non-Business Day will apply toward the total for the next Business Day. External transfers are processed as ACH transfers and may take up to 3 Business Days to process. We may change your transfer limits at any time. Any decrease will be subject to notice to the extent required by law.
If the external transfer feature is utilized to transfer funds between accounts with us, there will be a delay in funds availability as noted above.

You may modify transfers scheduled to occur at a future date. Any modification must be received before 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the day preceding the scheduled transfer date for the modification or cancellation to be effective. You cannot modify a transfer that has already occurred.
Funds transferred through Online Services may not be available for immediate use. The term ‘processing date’ is used by the Online Services permitting funds transfers.
