Transfers from one account to another do not qualify. Qualifying direct deposit does not include payments received from apps such as PayPal or Cash App, and other similar payment providers.

Deposits made at a financial center, via ATM, online transfer, mobile device, debit card/prepaid card number or the mail do not qualify. The Bank may change or discontinue the offer at any time and without notice. This offer is non-transferable and cannot be combined with other offers.

Additional Terms and Conditions:

2 Early Pay grants access to eligible direct deposit payments (PPD ACH transactions $25,000 and under) made into a Hancock Whitney Checking or Savings account up to two days prior to the scheduled payment date. Certain payroll payments may not be eligible for Early Pay. Early Pay availability is based on the timing of the payor’s payment instructions and therefore, you may not always see your direct deposits arrive early. Hancock Whitney does not guarantee early availability of these direct deposits. Early Pay eligibility may vary between pay periods, and daily/transaction limits apply. Any direct deposit not posted early will be made available to you in accordance with the payment instructions. After we have made the deposit available to you and you have withdrawn funds, you remain responsible if any deposit to your account is returned, rejected or uncollected by Hancock Whitney. No action is needed to take advantage of Early Pay. Early Pay will be activated for all Hancock Whitney Checking and Savings accounts only.

Monthly service fee of $10 can be waived by the following: primary account holder under 18 or age 64 and over or make one or more client-initiated debit or credit transactions per statement cycle to waive the service charge.
