Federal regulations limit certain types of transfers from a money market or saving account to a combined maximum of six per month. If you exceed the transfer limits on more than an occasional basis, we may convert your account to one not subject to transfer limitations or close your account.
In addition, each time a transfer is paid against your account in excess of those allowed by federal regulation, you will be assessed an "Excess Transaction or Withdrawal Fee". See our Deposit Account Agreement and Disclosures for details.
