Account Eligibility Requirements

To qualify for “REWARDS Checking” interest rates, you must:

·        Receive your –periodic account statement electronically

·       Have (1) one direct deposit or (1) one auto debit processed through your account per qualification cycle.

·       If you have met your eligibility requirements for the qualification cycle, we will refund domestic ATM fees up to $20.00 per statement cycle.

“Qualification cycle” means -a period beginning one (1) business day prior to the first day of the current statement period through one business day prior to the close of the current statement period.

Account qualification requirements become effective after the first two (2) statement periods.  If requirements are not met after this time, we will pay not less than the minimum interest rate on your account.

Compounding and Crediting

1. Contact in event of unauthorized transfer: If you believe your Card has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call 1-866-546-8273 to report immediately. Alternatively, you may write us at: One Edinburg Road, Hamilton, NJ 08619.

2. Liability for unauthorized use of Account(s): Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your Card has been lost or stolen, or if you believe that an electronic fund transfer has been made without your permission using information from your check. 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 you tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your card, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your Card without your permission.)

If you do NOT tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Card, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your Card 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, including those made by card, code or other means, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 calendar days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 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.

3. Business days: Our business days are 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM EST, Monday through Friday, excluding Federal Reserve holidays.

If you call, we may also require you to put your request in writing and get it to us within 14 days after you call. (We will charge you$30.00 for each stop-payment order you give.)

(2) Notice of varying amounts. If these regular payments may vary in amount, the person you are going to pay will tell you, 10 days before each payment, when it will be made and how much it will be. (You may choose instead to get this notice only when the payment would differ by more than a certain amount from the previous payment, or when the amount would fall outside certain limits that you set.)

(3) Liability for failure to stop payment of preauthorized transfer. If you order us to stop one of these payments 3 business days or more before the transfer is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.

8. Financial institution’s liability: 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: (i) there is not enough money in your account to make the transfer; (ii) the transfer would exceed the available balance on your Funds Account(s); (iii) the automated teller machine where you are making the transfer does not have enough cash; (iv) the terminal or system was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the transfer; (v) circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, or flood) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken; or (vi) if there are other applicable exceptions stated in our agreement with you in addition to those detailed here.

If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question.

For errors involving new accounts, point-of-sale, or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to 90 days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to 20 business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.
