Savings Account Terms Notice: Permanent Change 

Due to recent regulatory changes, we have lifted the transaction limitation for your savings account. Previously, Regulation D limited more than six (6) withdrawals or transfers from a savings account to another account. Effective immediately, savings account withdrawals or transfers will now be unlimited and no fees or penalties will be incurred for exceeding those limits.
