- Currently regulatory rules limit the number of preauthorized transfers and preauthorized transfers to a third party, to 6 per month. Exceeding this limitation could result in the reclassification of your account from a savings account to a transactional account. Examples of a third party transfer would be a preauthorized debit for payment of an insurance premium or a request for a wire transfer of funds. Examples of a preauthorized transfer would be an Online Banking transfer of funds, a First Connection transfer of funds, or an automated transfer of funds to cover an overdraft in a Demand Deposit Account.
