Dear frmr reservist,

I am sorry you have received conflicting information about the holds on your funds. I would like to get a specialist in contact with you to see if this can be sorted out. Please message us here with the best way to contact you and details about your situation.

 

Just for general knowledge, the Funds Availability details (in the depository agreement) can be found on page 28 of this PDF document.

 

Thank you

I made a mobile deposit on Feb. 11th with a check from The Bank of New York. At first the check was placed on hold because the camera only captured 2/3 of the check image which allowed it to still be accepted but at the same time placed the check on hold. I spoke to someone above the customer service rep level that explained to me because only a partial image was captured the check was placed on hold, but the agent went ahead and released the funds because he said he was familiar with checks from the issuing bank. On Mar. 9th, I went to the UPS Store and deposited another check from the same issuing bank and same company. Again, the check is on hold until Mar. 17th...

 

So my first question is why was the check placed on hold again even though its from the same issuing bank, which according to your employee, there is some familiarity with the issuing bank? Last time I spoke with someone above the customer service rep level, I was told the hold issue was due to the camera not capturing the whole check. Now, I know that transactions go through the Federal Reserve, but I also know from speaking with the issuing bank that my bank could always call and verify funds, but it's up to my bank if they want to go that extra step. It's apparent from talking with the customer service rep this morning that she was not open to the idea of verifying the funds or transferring me to someone that would've gone that extra mile.

 

And my second question is where does the accrued interest go for the seven days that my check is on hold? I've had this account for almost a year now but it's just recently that I've started having these issues with depositing checks, but not with money orders.

My husband has been on the phone with usaa for almost an hour. I recently got a new job and my first paycheck wasn't direct deposited. Takes 2 cycles. They held $93. Its been 4 business days. They won't release the funds. We had this problem when my husband got a new job. They asked us to borrow money from a family member and then began to question our purchases. First, we don't have anyone to borrow money from, and shouldn't have to when we have money that the bank won't give us. Second, its no one's business what we spend money on!!!! My husband will get paid tomorrow, but need OUR money for gas tonight to get to work. He will now miss a shift and almost $200, for a $93.00 hold. I thought they are supposed to be there for the troops, not turn them away. Will be closing our account.
