“HOLD MEMO DR” is identical to “HOLD REL MEM CR”. Per our other article, HOLD REL MEM CR, it means there’s a large deposit pending credit to the account, which means it needs extra time to process the amount.
Typically, a portion of the large deposit should still be available for use though. But it may be good to call the bank directly.

In very general terms, I always knew the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) and the Annual Percentage Yield (APY) were essentially the same, but there must be some difference. I finally decided to do some research and discovered the below.
||Annual Percentage Rate
||Annual Percentage Yield
||The annual cost of borrowing money that includes fees
||The rate at which your deposit account can earn money
- Savings Account
- Certificates of Deposit
APR = ( ( ( ( Fees + Interest Paid over Life of Loan ) / Loan Amount ) / Number of Days in Loan Term ) * 365 ) * 100
APY = ( 1 + (r/n) )^n – 1
r = annual interest rate
n = the number of times interest compounds per year
