3 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 After we have made the deposit available to you and you have withdrawn funds, you remain responsible if any deposit to your account is returned, rejected or uncollected by Hancock Whitney.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.

4 NSF items created by check, in-person withdrawals or other electronic means that overdraw (OD) an account may be charged $36.00 per item. If you have opted-in to the payment of ATM and everyday debit card (POS) NSF items into overdraft, we may assess OD fees on those items as well. We waive OD fees on the following: NSF items of $5.00 or less or overdrawn balances of $10.00 or less at the end of nightly batch processing. See our Truth in Savings Disclosure and Deposit Agreement for more information. We pay overdrafts at our discretion and do not guarantee that we will always authorize payment of any transaction. For example, we typically do not pay overdrafts if your account is not in good standing. If your account is overdrawn, you must immediately bring it to a positive balance. For additional details on the Bank’s OD practices see our Standard Overdraft Services, or visit a local financial center.
