In the event that you have discontinued use of our internet banking services and want recurring transfers stopped, please contact us at 877.782.2195 to ensure the transfers are stopped.


Liability for failure to make transfers. If we do not complete a transfer to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance:

  • If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.
  • If you have an overdraft line and the transfer would go over the credit limit.
  • If the automated teller machine where you are making the transfer does not have enough cash.
  • If the terminal or system was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the transfer.
  • If circumstances beyond our control (such as flood or fire) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.
  • There may be other exceptions stated in our agreement with you.


We will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transfers you make:

  • Where it is necessary for completing transfers; or
  • In order to verify the existence and condition of your account for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant; or
  • In order to comply with government agency or court orders; or
  • If you give us written permission.


  1. Consumer liability generally. Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your card and/or codes has been lost or stolen, or if you believe that an electronic fund transfer has been made without your permission using information from your check. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit). If you tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your card and/or code, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your card and/or code without your permission.
  2. If you do NOT tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your card and/or code, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your card and/or code without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500. Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make including those made by card, code or other means, 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.
  3. (b) Contact in event of unauthorized transfer. If you believe your card and/or code has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call or write us at the telephone number or address listed on this disclosure.

In Case of Errors or Questions about Your Electronic Transfers, Call or Write us at the telephone number or address listed on this disclosure, as soon as you can, if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement or receipt. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.

  1. Tell us your name and account number (if any).
  2. Describe the error or the transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
  3. Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.

If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or questions in writing within 10 business days. We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days (5 business days if involving a Visa point-of-sale transaction processed by Visa or 20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (90 days if the transfer involved a new account, a point-of-sale transaction, or a foreign-initiated transfer) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days (5 business days if involving a Visa point-of-sale transaction processed by Visa or 20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to completed the investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your account. Your account is considered a new account for the first 30 days after the first deposit is made, unless each of you already has an established account with us before this account is opened. We will tell you the results within three business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
