If you tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your password, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your 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 password and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your password without your permission you could lose as much as $500. 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 a good reason (such as long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we may extend the time period. If you believe your password have been lost or stolen, that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission or in case of error or questions about EFT’s from your accounts, call us at: 404-978-0080, visit your local branch or write to: MembersFirst Credit Union, P.O. Box 33189, Decatur, GA 30033. If you think that 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 sixty (60) days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appears. When contacting us be sure to:
• Tell us your name and account number.
• Describe the error or 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.
• Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.
• Tell us how we may contact you.
If you tell us orally, we may require you to send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days. The written complaint or question should be addressed to the Credit Union at the address stated above. We will determine whether an error occurred within ten (10) business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If you give notice of an error within thirty (30) days after you make the first deposit to your account; we will have twenty (20) business days instead of ten (10) business days. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45) days to investigate your complaint or question. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) business days, we may not credit your account. We will tell you the results of our investigation within three (3) business days after completing it. If we decide that there was no error, this will include a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
CREDIT UNION’S LIABILITY TO YOU: 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, or if any funds in your account necessary to complete the transfer are held as uncollected funds pursuant to our Funds Availability Policy. If the transfer would go over your credit limit on your overdraft line;
• If you used your PASSWORD in an incorrect manner;
• If the system was not working properly and you knew or should have known about the problem when you started the transaction;
• If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood, or power failure) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions we have taken;
• If the money in your account is subject to legal process or other claim;
• If the funds in your account are pledged as collateral or frozen for a delinquent loan;
• If the electronic transfer is not completed as a result of your willful or negligent use of your Card, password, or any EFT facility for making such transfers;
• If the phone or computer equipment used for audio response or electronic transfer is not working properly and you know or should have known about the problem when you started the transaction;
• If your account is closed by you or the Credit Union at the time of the transfer;
• If the payee does not process a payment correctly or in a timely manner;
• There may be other exceptions stated in our agreement with you.

• When necessary to completing the transfers;
• In order to verify the existence and condition of your account for a third party, such as credit bureau or merchant; or
• In order to comply with government agency, court orders, or government laws and regulations;
