Frequently Asked Questions

How can I add someone to an account?

The fastest way to add someone to your account would be to stop into any branch location with them.

How can I remove an owner from an account?

We are not able to remove an account owner; a new account would need to be opened.

How can I close an account?

We require a signature from an account owner to close an account. The fastest and simplest way is to stop into any branch location. 

When do I receive my savings account statements?

Savings account statements are rendered quarterly. If you have a checking account and have elected for combined statements then you will receive a statement monthly.

Why is my account inactive?

A checking or Savings account will become inactive after 12 months of no credit or debit activity.

Why can I not withdraw more than six times a month?

Regulation D (Reg D) is a Federal Reserve Board rule that puts a limit of six transactions per month on certain transfers and withdrawals from your savings or money market account.  If you go over the limit, UBT can charge you a fee and/or close your account or restrict transactions.   Reg D is the federal government's way of encouraging people to use saving accounts as they are intended---to save money---and ensures that banks have the proper amount of reserves on hand.

Which transactions are limited under Reg D?

  • Online transfers from savings or Money Market accounts to a different account either at the same institution or a different one
  • Transfers processed over the phone
  • Automatic or preauthorized transfers, such as bill payments or any other recurring transfers
  • Overdraft transfers from your savings account to your checking account
  • Transfers made by check or debit card.

Which transactions don't count under the limit?

  • Withdrawals or transfers made at ATMs
  • Transactions made in person at a bank

Quick tips on avoiding Reg D fees/violations

  • Make transfers count; do fewer transfers with larger sums of money
  • Link any automatic transfers, such as bill payments, to your checking account instead of savings
  • If you hit the transaction limit and need to make another transfer or withdrawal from your savings account, do it at an ATM or bank.  Even if the bank charges a fee, you won't risk your account being closed.
  • If your checking account has overdraft protection linked to a savings account try to avoid overdrafts.  Set up low-balance alerts on your checking account.

At Union Bank, we notify our customers by letter each time the violate the regulation in hopes they will explore other ways to avoid going over the transaction restriction but if this is not done our only option is to restrict the transfers and/or close the acct.
