Debit Holds/Pending Transactions

When you make a purchase with your debit card, a hold is placed on the funds. This is called a “pending transaction.”  The transaction “posts” when the funds are moved from your account to the accounts of the merchant.

When a transaction posts to your account the system will consider your available balance. If the available balance (current balance less pending transactions) is negative, a fee may be assessed and the item may or may not be paid, dependent upon Overdraft Protection, account history, and Overdraft Privilege settings.  For more information, please visit an office or call our Member Service Center at 800.991.2221.
