Electronic Fund Transfer Disclosure
THIS IS YOUR ELECTRONIC SERVICES DISCLOSURE AND AGREEMENT. IT INCLUDES NECESSARY FEDERAL STATEMENTS AS REQUIRED BY THE ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFER ACT (EFTA) (15 U.S.C. SECTION A683 ET SEQ.) AND REGULATION E (12 CFR PART 205, ET SEQ.) AND ANY SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS REGARDING THE USES OF YOUR PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (PIN) AND PASSWORD TO ACCESS NEIGHBORHOOD CREDIT UNION’S AUDIO RESPONSE SYSTEM, ONLINE BANKING AND AUTOMATED TELLER MACHINES (ATMs). PLEASE BE CERTAIN TO READ THIS DISCLOSURE CAREFULLY AND NOTIFY US AT ONCE IF ANY PARTS ARE UNCLEAR.
This disclosure covers the ATM card features of your VISA Debit Card, Audio Response System and Online Banking electronic fund transfer (EFT) services Neighborhood Credit Union currently offers. Some provisions may not currently be applicable to you.
Please read, print and retain this disclosure; it provides the procedures to be followed if you have an error or problem regarding your EFT services.
DEBIT/ATM CARD, AUDIO RESPONSE SYSTEM AND ONLINE BANKING AGREEMENT
This agreement applies to any electronic fund transfer made to or from your account(s) through the use of your debit card, automated teller machine card or at any ATM, or the use of your password in conjunction with our audio response system and/or online banking. Online Banking includes Mobile Banking. An electronic fund transfer (called a “transaction”) is the movement of funds other than a check or other paper instrument, which is performed through the use of an ATM, audio response, home banking, point-of-sale transaction, or other electronic device. You understand that your card and any access codes are issued by us and are not transferable.
ISSUANCE OF PIN AND PASSWORD
We will issue a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to be used in conjunction with your debit card and/or ATM card for transactions. Your password to use the audio response system or home banking for the first time is your social security number. You may change your password on the audio response or home banking system at any time.
YOUR LIABILITY UNDER THE ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFER ACT FOR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO YOUR SHARE ACCOUNTS
Tell Neighborhood Credit Union at once if you believe your cards, PIN, or password have been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way of keeping any possible losses to you at a minimum. You could lose all the money in your account(s) (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit).
If you believe your card(s), PIN, or password have been lost or stolen, and you tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50 if someone uses your card(s), PIN, or password without your permission.
If you do not tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your card(s), PIN, or password, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your card(s), PIN, or password without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.
Also, if your statement shows transactions 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 will not get back any money you lost after 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.
If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.

DOCUMENTATION OF TRANSFERS
You will receive a receipt at the time you make any transaction using an ATM.

NOTICE OF VARYING AMOUNT OF PREAUTHORIZED PAYMENTS
If pre-authorized payments to persons or companies vary in amount, the person or company you are going to pay will tell you 10 days before each payment when it will be scheduled and how much it will be. You may choose instead to get this notice only when the payment differs more than a certain amount from a previous payment, or when the amount would fall outside certain limits you set.
PROCEDURE FOR STOPPING PAYMENT OF PREAUTHORIZED TRANSFERS
If you have notified us in advance to make regular payments from your share savings or checking account(s), you can stop any of these payments which are made to companies other than Neighborhood Credit Union. To accomplish this:
- Telephone or write to us, using the phone number or address listed in the section “Address and Telephone Number for Notifying Neighborhood Credit Union,” above, in time for us to receive your request at least three business days before the payment is scheduled to be made.
- If you call, we will also require you to put your request in writing before we process the stop payment request.
LIABILITY FOR FAILURE TO STOP PAYMENT OF PREAUTHORIZED TRANSFERS
If you order us to stop one of these payments at least three business days before the transfer is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.
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 sufficient funds in your account to make the transaction.
- If the transaction would go over the credit limit on your line of credit at the credit union.
- If the ATM at which you are making the transaction does not have enough cash.
- If the ATM was not working properly and you knew this when you started the transaction
- If circumstances beyond our control, such as fire or flood, prevent the transaction despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.
- If for security reasons a limited amount of cash is available at an ATM.
- If the funds are subject to legal process or other encumbrance restricting such transaction.

We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the first statement on which the problem or error appeared.
- Tell us your name and account number.
- Describe the error or the transaction you are unsure about and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
- Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.
If you tell us orally, we require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days.
We will tell you the results of our investigation within 10 business days, or 20 business days if the notice of error involves an electronic fund transfer to or from the account within 30 days after the first deposit to the account was made, and will correct any error promptly.

- Was not initiated within a state
- Resulted from a point-of-sale debit card transaction
- Occurred within 30 days after the first deposit to the account was made

If we ask you to put your complaint in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days (or 20 business days, if applicable), we may not re-credit your account.
If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation within three business days after we complete our investigation and re-debit your account. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
