NOTICE CONCERNING “PENDING ACH”
With our ACH files being processed via our Disaster Recovery Center, you may see “pending ACH” on your account. Please know that the files are being pulled in at different times than normal due to the evacuation, but the posting date of your deposit from the sender determines when the credit or debit is actually posted to your account. Be aware we have limited staff working remotely to perform these functions and times may take longer than during regular operating hours.
We appreciate your patience.
