Most banks limit the amount of money you can withdraw per day from your account at an ATM. Two reasons explain why they do this. First, ATM machines can only hold a finite amount of cash. Banks have to hire a Brinks Truck (or similar) to restock the machine. Secondly, an ATM withdrawal limit curbs the amount of damage that an individual thief can do to an account.
In most cases, you will only be allowed to withdraw five hundred dollars. If you know where to go, however, you can find a bank with a much higher limit.
Here is a list of the maximum daily withdrawal limits at some of the larger banks in the United States. The maximum daily ATM withdrawal amount is listed first. If there are limits to the amount that can be spent with the account’s debit card, then that sum is listed after the ATM maximum.
