Cheque Holds and Access to Funds
In an effort to protect NLCU’s members and NLCU’s assets, when depositing a cheque into your account a hold may be placed on your funds. For the duration of the hold, you will be unable to access that portion of your funds.
The hold period varies depending on the type of cheque being deposited as well as the amount of the cheque. Upon request access to $100 of the deposit may be provided to you for your immediate use*. This feature applies once the cheque has been reviewed.
Cheques may be held for the following maximum number of business days:
|Item||Amount||Maximum Business Days Held|
|Cheques drawn on a Canadian financial institution||Up to, and including, $1,000||4|
|Cheques drawn on a Canadian financial institution||Greater than $1,000||7|
The Maximum Business Days Held begins once the cheque has been reviewed. Cheques deposited via an ATM or Deposit Anywhere may be held additional days.
Some cheques may require further confirmation, if so, the funds will be made available in your account upon confirmation that the funds to cover the deposited cheque have been received.
*Only available to members holding a $100 member share. If approved, this feature will not be available again until such time has passed allowing the initial cheque to be processed and cleared.
