The following information explains how soon various types of deposits, such as checks deposited from another bank, will be available for your use at Old National.
Checks drawn on another bank - Deposits made with checks drawn on a bank other than Old National (if there are no holds placed on the checks), when made by the close of business, will not be available until the next business day. This means these funds will not be available to cover checks or other debits being processed that night.1 This is different than what you may have experienced at Tower.
Checks drawn on Old National Bank - Deposits made with checks drawn on Old National Bank (if there are no holds placed on the checks), when made by the close of business, will be credited to your account and have same day availability to cover checks or other debits being processed that night.2
Cash and electronic deposits (such as direct deposit of payroll checks, Social Security or other government checks) - All available same day of deposit.
Old National offers overdraft protection and overdraft courtesy to help you avoid returned checks or declined transactions, if you don't have enough money in your checking account to cover them. These are two, separate services that can also be used together for extra protection.
Overdraft protection automatically transfers money from a linked account, when there is not enough money in your checking account to cover a transaction.
Overdraft courtesy works differently, by approving and paying certain transactions in most instances, if you don't have enough money in your checking account to cover them. Overdraft Courtesy limits are based on several account factors, including how long your account has been open, the average balance and previous returned check activity.
Overdraft courtesy is an automatic feature with most Old National checking products. Overdraft courtesy automatically covers checks written and ACH and recurring debit card payments (such as monthly utility bills). It does not automatically cover ATM withdrawals and one-time debit card transactions (such as everyday purchases at stores and restaurants), unless you request it at Old National or have already requested it at Tower Bank.Did my Tower Bank overdraft protection automatically transfer to
