Ho

I have my check deposited by direct deposit into my Federal Credit Union account. Past 4 months the funds were not made available for 5 to 6 business days later. Has anyone else experienced this?

Actually, ArthurS851289, they cannot do that - legally - not a bank nor a credit union..  Neither can these funds be garnished.  

However, are you sure that something else is not going on? 

Sometimes there is more to a story - is there to this one???

If there is no further story then you shold confront the Credit Union on this policy and ask WHY.

 

Your SS benefit funds (from the US Treasury) done by electronic direct deposit should be available in one-business day under a Federally regulated credit union.  I always thought that even state chartered credit unions had the same rule - but You may have to check with your state on that -

 

You should have a written policy on the holding of deposited funds from your Credit Union - you should know if it is a Federally regulated facility or under a state-charter - this determines who does the regulating.

Asking the institution WHY this is happening should get you a starting point.  

Let us know what you find out.    Good Luck.

BOTTOM LINE:  The NCUA allows consumers to trust credit unions across the United States. However, not every credit union is insured or regulated by NCUA.
