13. When I schedule an automatic loan payment, when will my account be debited?
The funds need to be available in your designated account on the due date. The system will attempt to debit from the account at the end of the business day on that date, unless the due date falls on a weekend or holiday. If the due date falls on a weekend or holiday, the payment will be debited at the end of the next business day. So if the due date falls on a Saturday, your account will be debited on the following Monday.
If the funds aren’t available in the account on the date the system attempts to debit, you will need to transfer the necessary additional funds into your account. Call us at 800.232.8669 or make a transfer through Online Banking.
14. What is Courtesy Coverage? What is my overdraft limit?
Rather than automatically returning unpaid, non-sufficient fund items which could cause you to incur a fee from the payee, Alliance will pay these items up to $1000. During the time you don’t have sufficient funds in your account, you will incur an NSF/overdraft fee for each transaction posted. Please see fee schedule for current fees.
As long as you bring your account current within each 30-day period, this benefit continues uninterrupted. We will send you an eAlert each time an overdraft occurs.
You are automatically enrolled in this program for checks and ACH debits 30 days after you open a checking account unless you tell us otherwise. You must opt-in to participate in this program for debit and ATM transactions. Please click here to complete the Opt-in Form for Debit/ATM Transactions.
15. If I make a deposit at an Alliance ATM, when will my funds be available?
The first $500 of funds from deposits at a Credit Union ATM or at any CO-OP ATM we participate in will be available immediately. If the deposit was made at a CO-OP ATM, any remaining funds may not be available until the fifth business day after the day of your deposit.
Funds from deposits may not be available for immediate withdrawal. The cut off time for deposits is 3 pm each business day. If you make a deposit at a Credit Union ATM after 3 pm on a business day, or on a weekend or holiday, any remaining funds will be available on the following business day.
Saturdays, Sundays and holidays are not business days.
