You may contact Neo if you wish to withdraw your consent to receive such electronic notifications during Neo’s business hours. Printed copies of documentation can be provided at an account holders’ request, subject to applicable fees outlined in the fee table above.
Interest accrues on every dollar the day your Savings Account becomes active. Interest is calculated daily on the total closing balance and paid monthly, based on the rates per annum, as offered. Interest rates are expressed annually and may vary from time to time. You acknowledge that, from time to time, we may change interest rates and how we calculate interest.
Fees are charged on the date that the transaction or event occurs (unless otherwise indicated). See the Rate and Fee Schedule above for all the fees applicable to the Savings Account.
Neo will provide you with notice of any fee changes, either an increase in fees or the addition of fees, through electronic means. These means may include posting a notice on Neo’s Website, through email, or through the Neo online web portal or mobile application or by any other method allowed by law as determined by us, at least 30 days before the change comes into effect.
Neo Savings accounts are eligible for CDIC deposit protection. The Neo Savings account is provided by Concentra Bank, a CDIC member institution. All eligible deposits made with the Bank are aggregately eligible for CDIC protection up to $100,000, per category, per depositor. For more information about CDIC deposit insurance, please consult CDIC’s website cdic.ca.
This hold policy is based on regulation set by the Bank Act (Canada) and Payments Canada. When you make a deposit into your Savings Account, Neo may place a hold on your deposit on our behalf to verify that the funds will be available from the account of the other financial institution. Although the deposit will be reflected in your account balance immediately, your ability to access the entire amount of your deposit will be restricted until the hold period expires. This means that you will be unable to withdraw, transfer (ET or INTERAC ® e-Transfer) or pay bills using funds that are being held.
Subject to the exceptions below, the maximum length of time Neo will hold funds for is 5 business days for amounts under $1,500, and 8 business days for amounts above or equivalent to $1,500.
In general, up to $100 of each cheque you deposit to your Savings Account (via Remote Deposit Capture) will be available for withdrawal on the business day following the day of deposit when you contact us. If the deposit is made by ET, access to the first $100 will not apply. In addition, the first $100 of each deposit may not be available for withdrawal if your account has been open for less than 90 days, at our discretion.
The expiry of the hold period means that you can access the entire amount of your deposit, but it does not guarantee that the cheque cannot be returned to us unpaid. You are financially responsible for any items that you deposit, and if a cheque is returned unpaid at any time (for example, due to insufficient funds, a stop payment order or a forged signature) either during or after the expiry of the applicable hold period, Neo has the right to charge the amount of the cheque or item to your account.
We may extend the maximum hold periods or we may refuse to accept a cheque in some circumstances, including (but not limited to) if:
We have reasonable grounds to believe that the cheque has been deposited for illegal or fraudulent purposes.
The cheque has been endorsed more than once; is deposited six (6) months or more after the date of the cheque; is not encoded with magnetic ink character recognition or is not readable by clearing and processing systems (e.g. has damaged or mutilated encoding)
