Frozen Account

A bank account that the customer may not use because of a debt that has not been paid. This means that money can neither go into nor come out of an account. A creditor is allowed to freeze an account for up to twice the amount owed if the debtor is consistently delinquent. The account remains frozen until the debt is settled or the creditor is otherwise satisfied. Generally speaking, an account holder is notified in writing that his/her account has been frozen, but this is not always the case.

frozen account

A brokerage account in which a customer must pay in full before securities are bought and must deliver certificates before securities are sold. An account is frozen when a customer fails to maintain the proper margin required by Regulation T. Compare freeriding.
