What is the difference between balance and available balance?

Your account balance is the total amount of money that is currently in your account, including any pending transactions (e.g., debit card purchases that have not cleared).

Your available balance is the total amount of money in your account that you can use for purchases and withdrawals, as it excludes pending transactions and check holds from your account balance. However, the available balance will not show checks that haven’t been cashed or deposits which haven’t posted.

You should always use the available balance to determine how much money you have available for purchases and withdrawals. Otherwise you might overdraw your account if you spend based on your account balance and it is higher than your available balance.

Overdraft fees are also called non-sufficient funds (NSF) fees.You can enroll in overdraft protection to safeguard against any NSF fees, and monitor your available balances on the go with Online and Mobile Banking.
