CONSUMER DISCLOSURES

Consumer LiabilityTell us AT ONCE if you believe your Access ID or Password has been lost or stolen. 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 applicable). If you tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Access ID or Password, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your Access ID or Password without your permission.  

If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Access ID or Password and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your Access ID or Password without your permission if you had given us notice, you can lose as much as $500.

Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, including those made by use of your Access ID or password or other means, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the sixty (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 a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
