Generally there is a federal regulation (Regulation D) that limits the number of transfers that a member can make from a savings account.
On April 24, the Federal Reserve Board announced an interim final rule to amend Regulation D to delete the six-per-month limit on convenient transfers from the “savings deposit” definition. The interim final rule allows depository institutions immediately to suspend enforcement of the six transfer limit to allow their members to make an unlimited number of convenient transfers and withdrawals from their savings deposits at a time when financial events associated with the coronavirus pandemic have made such access more urgent.
At Western Vista we have turned off the Reg D tracking for the following accounts on a temporary basis: Primary Savings, Horizon Savings, Money Market, Liquid Gold, Secondary Savings, and Rainbow Savings. This change allows a member to transfer an unlimited number of times from these accounts governed by Reg D without placing a restriction or fee ($3.00) after the sixth transfer is made. Additionally, we have decided as an organization to temporarily remove the $3.00 fee that a member is charged for utilizing the automated overdraft transfer within their accounts. This measure is currently in place through October 1, 2020, but is subject to change.
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Forward Greater Cheyenne and the City of Cheyenne have partnered to meet the urgent needs of the Cheyenne community via the Greater Cheyenne COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund. The Greater Cheyenne Relief Fund will be overseen by a committee that will review applications and award funds to individuals that are in need. Applications will start being accepted on April 13.
