1. Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers

Tell us at once if you believe your DEBIT CARD and/or Personal Identification Number (P.I.N.) has been lost, stolen or used without your permission. Telephoning us is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account(s). If you tell us within 2 business days, you can be liable for zero with a Check/ATM Card if someone used your Check/ATM Card End/or Personal Identification Number without your permission. If you tell us within 2 business days, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your ATM Card and/or Personal Identification Number without your permission.

If you tell us within 2 business days after you learn of your loss or theft of your Check/ATM Card or Personal Identification Number, you can lose no more than $50. If you do NOT tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your ATM Card or Personal Identification Number, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your ATM Card and/or Personal Identification Number 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 or authorize, tell us at once. If you do NOT tell us within 60 days (90 days with credit union's ATM Card) after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days (90 days with credit union's ATM card), if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time.
