Funds Availability Policy

This Disclosure describes your ability to withdraw funds at Tex Mex Credit Union.

1. General Policy.
Our policy is to make funds from you cash and check deposits available to you on the same business day that we receive your deposit. Electronic direct deposits will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Once they are available, you can withdraw the funds in cash and we will use the funds to pay checks that you have written. For determining the availability of your deposits, ever day is a business day, except Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays. If you make a deposit after 3:00 p.m. or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open.

2. Reservation of Right to Hold.
In some cases, we will not make all of the funds that you deposit by check available to you on the same business day that we receive your deposit. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the fifth business day after the day of your deposit. However, the first $200.00 of your deposit will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit. If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available on the same business day, we will notify you at the time you make your deposit. We will also tell you when the funds will be available. If your deposit is not made directly to one our employees, or if we decide to take this action after you have left the premises, we will mail you the notice by the next business day after we receive your deposit. If you will need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask when the funds will be available.

3. Holds on Other Funds.
If we cash a check for you that is drawn on another financial institution, we may withhold the availability of a corresponding amount of funds that are already in your account. Those funds will be available at the time funds from the check we cashed would have been available if you had deposited it. If we accept for deposit a check that is drawn on another financial institution, we may make funds from the deposit available for withdrawal immediately but delay your availability to withdraw a corresponding amount of funds that you have on deposit in another account with us. The funds in the other account would then not be available for withdrawal until the time periods that are described elsewhere in this disclosure for the type of check that you deposited.

4. Longer Delays May Apply.
We may delay your ability to withdraw funds deposited by check into your account an additional number of days for these reasons:

  •     We believe a check you deposit will not be paid.
  •     You deposit checks totaling more that $ 5,000 on any one day.
  •     You deposit a check that 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.


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 eleventh business day after the day of your deposit.
