Q. When will the funds of my deposit become available?

A. Determining the availability of a deposit

The length of the delay is counted in business days from the day of your deposit. Every day is a business day except Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays. If you make a deposit before 3:00 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 after 3:00 p.m. or on a non-business day, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day. The length of the delay varies depending on the type of deposit and is explained below.

Same Day Availability

Funds from electronic direct deposits to your account will be available on the day we receive the deposit.

Next Day Availability

Funds from the following deposits are available on the first business day after the day of your deposit:

  • U.S. Treasury checks that are payable to you.
  • Wire transfers.
  • Checks drawn on Trustco.
If you make a deposit in person to one of our employees, funds from the following deposits are also available on the first business day after the day of your deposit:
  • Cash
  • State and local government checks that are payable to you (if you use a special deposit slip available from Trustco).
  • Cashiers, certified, and teller's checks that are payable to you (if you use a special deposit slip available from Trustco).
  • Federal Reserve Bank checks, Federal Home Loan Bank checks, and postal money orders, if these items are payable to you.

If you do not make your deposit in person to one of our employees (for example, if you mail the deposit), funds from these deposits will be available on the second business day after the day of your deposit.

Other Check Deposits

The first $100 from a deposit of checks will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit. The remaining funds will be available on the second business day after the day of your deposit.

For example, if you deposit a check of $700 on a Monday, $100 of the deposit is available on Tuesday. The remaining $600 is available on Wednesday.

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 communications or computer equipment.
  • You deposit a check in U.S. funds which is not drawn on a bank located in the U.S.

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 customer, the following special rules will apply during the first thirty (30) days your account is open.

  • 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, traveler’s, and federal, state, and local government checks will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit if the deposit meets certain conditions. For example, the checks must be payable to you and you must use a special deposit slip available at Trustco. 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 day of your deposit.
  • Funds from all other check deposits will be available on the eleventh business day after the day of your deposit.

 

Q. What should I do if I have an unauthorized direct withdrawal on my account?

A. Visit or contact your local branch immediately. A branch manager will assist you in disputing this transaction.
