DEPOSIT AGREEMENT ADDENDUM

Effective June 1, 2020

This Deposit Agreement Addendum amends and supersedes, where applicable, the Bank’s Deposit Agreement dated 6/18/2015 and applies specifically to accounts opened using the East West Bank mobile banking application.

 
  1. Holds for Uncollected Funds / Delayed Funds Availability

    The below revised information amends the “Ability to Withdrawal Funds”, “Longer Delays May Apply” and “Special Rules for New Accounts” information contained in the Holds for Uncollected Funds / Delayed Funds Availability section of the Bank’s Deposit Agreement. All other information contained in the Holds for Uncollected Funds / Delayed Funds Availability section of the Deposit Agreement remains the same.

    Effective April 16, 2020

    Ability to Withdrawal Funds - Our policy is to delay the availability of funds from your check deposits. During that delay, you may not withdraw the funds in cash and we will not use the funds to pay checks that you have written.

    For determining the availability of your deposits, every day is a business day, except Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays. If you make a deposit in person at one of our branch locations before the close of business on a business day that we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. If you use our mobile banking remote deposit capture service to deposit a check before 9:00 p.m. (Pacific Time), we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit.

    NOTE:
    Generally, our close of business is 5:00 p.m. (local time zone), Monday – Friday, however most of our locations close at 6:00 p.m. (local time zone) on Friday. (Note: These times may vary by location.)

    If you make a deposit into one of our automated teller machines before 3:00 p.m. (local time zone) on a business day we are open, we may consider that day to be the day of deposit. However, if you make any of the above mentioned deposits after the cut-of time or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open.

    The length of the delay varies depending on the type of deposit and is explained below.

    Same-Day Availability

    Funds from electronic direct deposits to your account will be available on the day we receive the deposit.

    Next-Day Availability

    Funds from the following deposits are available on the first business day after the day of your deposit:

    • U.S. Treasury checks that are payable to you.
    • Wire transfers.
    • Checks drawn on East West Bank.

    If you make the deposit in person to one of our employees, funds from the following deposits are also available on the first business day after the day of your deposit:

    • Cash.
    • State and local government checks that are payable to you.
    • Cashier's, certified, and teller's checks that are payable to you.
    • Federal Reserve Bank checks, Federal Home Loan Bank checks, and postal money orders, if these items are payable to you.

    If you do not make your deposit in person to one of our employees (for example, if you mail the deposit or use our remote deposit capture service), funds from these deposits will be available on the second business day after the day we receive your deposit.

    Other Check Deposits

    Our policy is to make funds from local and nonlocal checks available as follows.

    • The first $225 from a deposit of local checks will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit. The remaining funds will be available on the second business day after the day of your deposit.

      For example, if you deposit a local or nonlocal check of $700 on a Monday, $225 of the deposit is available on Tuesday. The remaining $475 is available on Wednesday.

    Effective June 1, 2020

    Longer Delays May Apply – In some cases, we will not make all of the funds that you deposit by check available to you on the first business day after the day of your deposit. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit. However, the first $225 of your deposit will be available on the first business day.

    If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available on the first business day, we will notify you at the time you make your deposit. We will also tell you when the funds will be available. If your deposit is not made directly to one of our employees, or if we decide to take this action after you have left the premises, we will mail you the notice by the day after we receive your deposit.

    If you will need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask us when the funds will be available.

    In addition, funds you deposit by check may be delayed for a longer period under the following circumstances:

    • We believe a check you deposit will not be paid.
    • You deposit checks totaling more than $5,525 on any one day.
    • You redeposit a check that has been returned unpaid.
    • You have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the last six months.
    • There is an emergency, such as failure of communications or computer equipment.

    Effective June 1, 2020

    Special Rules for New Accounts – If you are a new customer, the following special rules will apply during the first 30 days your account is open.

    Funds from electronic direct deposits to your account will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Funds from deposits of cash, wire transfers and the first $5,525 of a day’s total deposits of cashier’s, certified, teller’s, traveler’s and federal, state and local government checks, will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit if the deposit meets certain conditions. For example, the checks must be payable to you. The excess over $5,525 will be available on the ninth business day after the day of your deposit. If your deposit of these checks (other than a U.S. Treasury check) is not made in person to one of our employees, the first $5,525 will not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit.

    Funds from all other check deposits will be available on the ninth business day after the day of your deposit.

    NOTE:
    The forgoing rules do not apply to deposits of foreign items (items drawn on or payable through or at an office of a depository institution not located in the U.S.).
