Why did you place a hold on my deposit?

Gothenburg State Bank’s general policy is to make deposited funds available on the first business day we receive the deposit. In some cases, however, we place a “hold” on the funds. Common reasons for placing a hold on a check or deposit include, but are not limited to:

  • Accounts with frequent overdrafts
  • Accounts opened for a short time
  • High dollar deposits that exceed the total available balance in the account
  • Deposits of foreign currency
  • Deposits of checks that have already been returned unpaid
  • The financial institution that the check was drawn against has notified our bank that the check will be returned
