Similarly, when you use Mobile Banking services to access a credit account, you do so under the terms and conditions we gave you in the agreement and disclosure for the credit account.

Description of Mobile Banking Services

Internal Account Transfers

Processing of Transfer Requests

  • Transfers can be made in 2 ways, on a 1-time basis. One-time transfers may be immediate or scheduled for a future date. The recurring transfer feature may be used when a set amount is transferred at regular intervals. For example, a $100 transfer from a checking to a savings account which occurs every 2 weeks.
  • One-time immediate transfers can be made from a linked UFCU checking or savings account to a linked UFCU checking, savings or loan account(s) with us.
  • Scheduled and recurring transfers can be made from a linked UFCU checking or savings account to a linked checking, savings or loan account(s) with us.
  • Transfers can be made from a linked UFCU personal checking or savings account to most other UFCU member’s personal checking, savings, or loan accounts.
  • Transfers from a deposit account (excluding investment accounts) are immediately reflected in the account’s available balance.

Scheduled and Recurring Transfers

  • Transfers scheduled for a weekend or a non-bank business day will be processed on the next business day. All other scheduled and recurring transfers will be processed from the funding account at the beginning of the business day requested.

Transfers to Credit Accounts

  • Funds transferred as a payment to UFCU’s VISA credit card, line of credit, installment loan or home equity loan account before 6:00 p.m. CT will be credited with the date the payment is submitted. Transfer payments submitted after 6:00 p.m. CT will be credited with the next day’s date. Updates to account balances, funds availability, and transaction posting may take up to 1 business day.

Transfers to Deposit Accounts

  • Transfers to a UFCU checking account made after 6:00 p.m. CT as described above on a business day but before 11:59 p.m. CT as shown in the table below will be included in the balance we use to pay transactions that night. This process may impact when fees apply to your account. Credits can help you avoid overdrafts, returned items and related fees. However, debits may cause you to incur overdrafts, returned items and related fees. Please note that although these transfers are included in the balance we use to pay transactions that night, they will appear with our next business day’s date in the deposit account transaction history.

Please note, transfers to any deposit account on a Saturday, Sunday or bank holiday, will appear with our next business day’s date in the deposit account transaction history.

  • All transfers submitted to a deposit account (such as a checking or savings account) are immediately reflected in the account’s available balance.

 

Limitations and Dollar Amounts for Transfers

Transfers made using MOBILE Banking are subject to the following limitations:

  • One-time immediate transfers between linked UFCU accounts can be for any amount.
  • Transfers submitted to the accounts of other UFCU members may not exceed $99,999.99.
  • Scheduled transfers between linked UFCU accounts can be for any amount between $0.01 and $99,999.99.
  • All transfer limits are subject to temporary reductions to protect the security of member accounts and/or the transfer system.
  • At the discretion of UFCU, we may refuse to process any transaction that exceeds any of the above limits. In this case, you are responsible for making alternate transfer arrangements.

 

Transfer/Payment Authorization and Sufficient Available Funds

  • You authorize UFCU to withdraw, debit or charge the necessary funds from your designated account in order to complete all of your designated transfers and payments.
  • You agree that you will instruct us to make a withdrawal only when a sufficient balance is or will be available in your accounts at the time of the withdrawal.
  • The completion of a transfer or payment is subject to the availability of sufficient funds (including any overdraft protection plans) at the time the transaction is posted. If enough funds to complete the transfer or payment are not available, we may either (i) complete the transaction and overdraw the account or (ii) refuse to complete the transaction. In either case, we may charge a non-sufficient funds (NSF), returned item, overdraft, or similar fee. Please refer to the applicable account agreement and fee schedule for details. If you schedule a payment from an account maintained at another financial institution and there are insufficient funds in that account, you may be charged a fee by that financial institution.
  • At our option, we may make a further attempt to issue the payment or process the transfer request.
  • UFCU is under no obligation to inform you if it does not complete a payment or transfer because there are non-sufficient funds or credit in your account to process the transaction. In this case, you are responsible for making alternate arrangements or rescheduling the payment or transfer.

 

Canceling Transfers

  • Transfers
  • You cannot cancel a 1-time immediate transfer after it has been submitted in mobile Banking and the information has been transmitted to us.
  • Future-dated and recurring transfers can be canceled prior to midnight ET on the bank business day prior to the date the transfer is scheduled to be made. If the transfer’s status is In Process or Processed, you can no longer cancel it. After you cancel a future-dated transfer, the status changes to Canceled.

We will work with these Payees to encourage them to accept an electronic or check payment from the credit union. If we are unsuccessful, or if we determine that the Payee cannot process payments in a timely manner, we may decline future payments to this Payee. In the unlikely event that this occurs, we will promptly send you a notice. Any obligations that you wish to pay through mobile Banking with Bill Pay must be payable in U.S. dollars to a Payee located in the United States. We reserve the right to restrict categories of Payees to whom payments may be made using the service. You should not use the service to make:

  • Tax payments
  • Court-ordered payments
  • Payments to settle securities transactions

 

Canceling Your Online Banking

If you choose to cancel your Online Banking services, any unprocessed payments will be canceled. We recommend that you cancel any scheduled payments prior to notifying us that you are discontinuing the service. UFCU will cancel any scheduled payments within two (2) bank business days from the date we receive your request to discontinue the service. If you close your primary checking account, or if it’s no longer linked to your service, your Online Banking service will end, and any unprocessed payments will be canceled. If you cancel your Online Banking services, transfers outside UFCU will also be canceled.

 

Joint Accounts

Changes to Agreement

We may change this agreement at any time. For example, we may add, delete or amend terms or services. We will notify you of such changes by mail or electronic message. If you initiate any transfer of funds or bill payment through your mobile Banking after the effective date of a change, you indicate your agreement to the change.

 

Cancellation

Your mobile banking will remain in effect until terminated by you or UFCU. You may cancel your service at any time by notifying us of your intent to cancel in writing, through mobile Banking secure mail, or by calling UFCU member service at701-777-2274 or 701-775-3738. This cancellation applies to your mobile Banking services, and does not terminate your UFCU deposit or credit accounts. We recommend that you cancel any scheduled payments prior to notifying us that you are discontinuing the service.

We may terminate your participation in mobile Banking services for any reason, including inactivity, at any time. We will try to notify you in advance, but we are not obliged to do so.

 

Use of External Email Address

With mobile Banking services we may send messages to your external email address and notify you that responses to your payment inquiries or member service inquiries are available, or as otherwise described within the mobile Banking services. We cannot act on instructions sent by you from an external email address. You should use mobile Banking secure mail to send instructions to UFCU. If, for any reason your external email address changes or becomes disabled, please contact UFCU immediately so that we can continue to provide you with automated messages. You may notify us of any changes to your external email address through the member Service tab within your mobile Banking service.

Reporting Unauthorized Transactions

For accounts:

Contact our offices at 701-777-2274 or 701-775-3738.

 

Disclosure of Account Information

We may disclose information to third parties about you or your transactions in the following instances:

  • When it’s necessary for completing transfers or bill payments, or to investigate or resolve a problem related to a transfer or payment
  • To verify the existence and condition of your account for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant
  • To comply with a government agency or court orders, or in connection with fraud prevention or an investigation
  • If you give us your permission
  • With our affiliates as permitted under Federal and applicable state laws
  • On a closed account, if we reasonably believe you have mishandled it

 

Account Statements

We report your mobile Banking transactions on the monthly statements for your linked accounts. A description of each transaction, including whom you paid, and the date and amount of the transaction will appear on your statement.

 

Limitation of Liability for Mobile Banking Transactions

Tell us at once if you believe your mobile Banking passcode has been compromised or if someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission. The best way to minimize your loss is to call us immediately. The unauthorized use of your mobile Banking services could cause you to lose all of your money in your accounts, plus any amount available under your overdraft protection plan.

You will have no liability for unauthorized transactions if you notify us within 60 days after the statement showing the transaction has been mailed to you (or 90 days if the transaction was from an account maintained at another financial institution). If you do not, you may not get back any of the money you lost from any unauthorized transaction that occurs after the close of the 60-day period (or 90 day period if the transaction was from an account maintained at another financial institution), if we can show that we could have stopped the transaction if you had notified us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we may extend the time periods.

When you give someone your mobile Banking ID and passcode, you are authorizing that person to use your service, and you are responsible for all transactions that person performs while using your service. All transactions that person performs, even those transactions you did not intend or want performed, are authorized transactions. If you notify us that the person is no longer authorized, then only transactions that person performs after the time you notify us are considered unauthorized.

Transactions that you or someone acting with you initiates with fraudulent intent are also authorized transactions.

For your protection, sign off after every mobile Banking session.

 

Our Liability for Failure to Complete Transactions

If we do not complete a transaction 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. For instance, we will not be liable:

  • If, through no fault of ours, you don’t have enough available funds in your account (or available funds under your overdraft protection plan), or credit to cover the transaction or transfer
  • If mobile Banking services weren’t working properly, and you knew about the malfunction when you started the transaction or transfer
  • If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevented the transaction or transfer, despite reasonable precautions we’ve taken
  • If there are postal delays or processing delays by the Payee

There may be other exceptions not specifically mentioned.
