See Pending Debit Card Transactions on Web Branch

Starting today, you are able to see your pending debit card transactions on Web Branch. When you look at your checking account history, transactions you've made, but have yet to post to your account, will appear at the top of your history.

These items will have the word Authorized under the category column. You'll be able to assign a real category (or one will auto-assign) when the actual transaction posts to your account in 1-2 business days. The latest date the authorization will expire is next to the description of the transaction (it could expire sooner).

The authorized transactions amounts will be taken out of your available balance so you'll have a better sense of how much money you actually have. You can see this in the balance column. In the future, we'll add additional pending items like transfers and Web Payments to this area to provide additional insight into your "true balance."

If you don't like this feature, it can be easily hidden by clicking on the X in the top right of the pending items section.
