I learned today that Alterna places a hold of 5 days on deposits made when transferring (push) funds from another financial institution, restricting withdrawals during that period.

I made a deposit on July 12, and could not withdraw some of those funds today, July 17..until after midnight July 17.

Good to know if funds might be needed in a hurry.

…

July 12 to July 17 is only four business days. As well, I don't see holds on funds pushed in.

Instead of a hold, is it possible you had reached one of Alterna Bank's Me-to-Me Transfer limits of $50,000 in 7 days and $125,000 in 30 days?

Yes this is mentioned on their website.

For security reasons, there may be a 5 business day hold on incoming Me-to-Me transfers.
