Regulation D begins January 1st, 2014

Regulation D is a federal regulation that requires all financial institutions to enforce controls and limits on the number of certain types of transfers or withdrawals from a savings account.  Regulation D allows for a maximum of six transactions each calendar month from a savings account. Transactions from a savings account exceeding six in a calendar month must be rejected and/or assessed a punitive fee to deter further activity of this nature.

Transactions from a savings account affected by Regulation D are:

  • overdraft protection transfers
  • authorized payables (ACH, pre-authorized debits, etc.) to third parties
  • automatic transfers excluding transfers to loans
  • transfers completed within home banking or mobile banking

Transactions from a savings account not affected by Regulation D are:

  • in-person withdrawals or transfers
  • ATM withdrawals

Effective January 1, 2014, Southwest Oklahoma FCU is obligated to enforce a fee of $10 for each Regulation D transaction from a savings account that exceeds six in a calendar month. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Thank you for understanding as your credit union continues to work within the stringent parameters of our federal regulatory requirements.
