Federal Reserve Board Regulation D limits the number of certain withdrawals from savings accounts. As required by regulation, we monitor your accounts to ensure the transaction restrictions are observed. Beginning on May 1, 2015, your Credit Union will begin limiting withdrawals covered by the regulation from savings accounts (including your primary share account, any secondary share savings accounts, and minor shares as well as member perks accounts).
