However, you may make an unlimited number of withdrawals from your account in person, by ATM, or by mail. An excessive withdrawal fee of up to $15 is assessed if you exceed your withdrawal limits during a monthly statement cycle.

If the above limits are exceeded three (3) times in a twelve (12) month period, the account will be closed or changed to a different type of account.
