An Important Update to Reg D

Regulation D (Reg D) is a federal regulation that limits the number of transfers allowed from a savings account each month. To maintain compliance with this federal requirement, the number of transfers that CU1 members can make from a savings account is limited to six per month. This applies to any transfer from savings that is made via Online Access, ACH, Bill Pay, periodic transfer, audio response – and new in 2018, phone transfers as well.

Transfers made in person do not count toward the Reg D limit, and additionally, you can make as many transfers INTO savings as you’d like. If you need to complete more than six transfers in a month, we encourage you to make use of a spending or loan account to do so, as transfers from these accounts are unlimited!
