      Anyone else use WoodForest bank? When I opened my account a few months ago I was told that they do not hold direct deposited checks. I specifically asked about my tax return and they said as long as its direct deposited it will not be held, as soon as it is sent to the bank they release it to the customer. However, I have noticed a guideline on transactions stating that if they are done before 8 pm they are posted to the account but after 8pm they get posted the next day. Not sure if this info will help anyone but I figured I’d pass it along. If anyone has any other information about this bank please post. Thanks!

      I use woodforest as well and they do not hold deposits my return went in last year at like 1pm. Our branch manager said as soon as a dd comes in its available to you.

      I used to bank with them and my direct deposits from employer always came in immediately after being sent from payroll company – on Wed instead of Friday. No exp. with taxes to that account, though.

      IRS says Direct Deposit of refund was put into my account March 21, 2023. I had just found prior that they had closed the account (probably because I bank there infrequently.
      I reopened an account (not the same # on my tax return) and WF said not to worry, if the refund comes in, they’ll open up the closed account and give it 30 days. Well, that answer is not very satisfactory to me. By reading these messages, I have seen that to be inconsistent with others.
