Regulation D FAQs
- What is
Reserve Regulation D places a monthly limit of six (6) electronic
transfers and withdrawals that you may make from your Savings Accounts
without your physical presence being required.

Transfers made using SAFE@home
Transfers made using Telephone Banking
Overdraft transfers (made automatically to cover insufficient funds in other accounts; see below)
Transfers by phone made by a Member Service Representative on your behalf
Pre-authorized, automatic, scheduled or recurring transfers

- What are my options once
my saving account has reached its Regulation D limit in a calendar
You may complete withdrawals and transfers in person, by mail, or at an ATM.
- If a
savings account has reached its Regulation D limit, will Stark FCU
continue to automatically transfer money to cover an overdraft?
No. In that case, you will receive a notice by mail and you
may incur an overdraft charge for each item presented for payment
against your account.

- I have authorized a merchant to automatically withdraw payments from my Savings Account; do these count against my monthly limit?
Yes. These payments (which you might know as "ACH" or "EFT" transactions) follow Regulation D limitations. Any withdrawals attempted beyond your monthly limit will not be honored, and you will receive a notice by mail and incur an Insufficient Funds change. To avoid this situation, make automatic payments using something other than a Savings Account or MMA, such as a checking account. Contact the merchant to arrange this change, and be aware that your request could take more than a month to go into effect.
Note: There are no limitations on checking accounts, only
