When I conduct a transaction via the Internet, when will my updated account information post?

Although you can access your account information at any time and perform transactions between your accounts, your transactions are not posted "real time." Banking transactions will not be reflected in the Ledger Balance until the application's posting the next business day. Transactions will be reflected in the Available Balance.

What is the difference between my Ledger Balance and Available Balance?

Your Ledger Balance is your beginning of the day balance. Your Available Balance is your beginning of the day balance plus or minus "Today's Credits" or "Today's Debits". For example: Your uncollected ledger balance is $100, Today's Credits total $25 (you deposited $25 cash at your branch), and Today's Debits total $10 (you took out $10 at an ATM). Your available balance would be $115. Note: Other Transactions may be credited/debited to your account throughout the day.
