Transfer Services Disclosure
Revised on 04/01/2000
The access device is not validated until the appropriate agreement for the Electronic Funds Transfer has been signed. You can not use the card or PIN/Access Code to transfer money into or out of your account until validated by the credit union.
If you do not want to use the card, please destroy it at once by cutting it in half. If you do not want to use the PIN/Access Code, please destroy the notice containing the assigned code at once.
II. Member Liability
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your card or PIN/Access Code has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all of your money in your account (plus your maximum line of credit).
You agree to notify us immediately of the loss, theft, or use without your permission of any card or PIN/Access Code. You may be liable for the unauthorized use of your card. You will not be liable for unauthorized use that occurs after you notify the Credit Union verbally or in writing, of the loss, theft, or possible unauthorized use within two business days (48 hours) of discovery.
Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
