Federal Regulations limit you to six (6) transfers per month from your savings account using online banking. This regulation applies to all banks and credit unions in the U.S. However, there is good news. After you've reached your six online withdrawals from savings every month you can still make as many withdrawals as you’d like at the ATM. Use our extensive surcharge-free ATM network at anytime.
