Your Credit Union

Your credit union is unique in the financial world. It is a co-op owned by you and your fellow members and operated in your common interest. Your credit union is not-for-profit and exists only to serve you. As a credit union member, you own, oper-ate, and control your credit union through your Board of Directors. You are entitled to elect and be elected to the volunteer Board of Directors, which is composed of your fellow members and manages the credit union based on the needs and wishes of the members. The Board of Directors sets dividend rates, loan interest rates and fees, among other things, and also determines credit union policy such as that set forth in this Agreement. The credit union reserves the right to change any and all terms and conditions of any of them. In addition, your credit union works cooperatively with Maine’s other cred-it unions and the Maine Credit Union League, pooling resources for research and development of cost effective services which benefit not only you and your fellow members, but all credit union members in Maine.

General Terms

This Agreement contains the terms and conditions governing your membership in and accounts offered by your Credit Union. By signing your membership card and/or account agreement(s), you accept and agree to be bound by the provi-sions as set forth in them, this Agreement, the rate and fee disclosures applicable to your account(s) with your credit union, your credit union’s charter and bylaws, and any amendments or changes in terms to any of them, and all of them are incor-porated into and made a part of this Agreement by reference. You will receive notice of any changes in terms in accordance with all applicable state and federal laws and regulations.

The terms and conditions as set forth in this Agreement are applicable to all types of accounts offered by your credit union. There may be different or more specific terms and conditions which apply to certain accounts. Those different or specific terms are contained in the application, share certificate, agreement, or other documents evidencing the account. To the extent that there are different terms or terms which are not included in this Agreement or those documents, such terms su-persede this Agreement.

Privileges of credit union membership. Being a credit union member carries with it many privileges, including the ability to open accounts other than ordinary share accounts, such as checking accounts; to make and receive electronic funds transfers and wire transfers; and to obtain loans and lines of credit. However, it is your credit union’s policy to deny these privileges to members who cause a loss to the credit union for any reason. Therefore, if you cause a loss to your credit union, and thus to your fellow members, you will lose your privileges of credit union membership.

Important information about procedures for opening a new account. To help the federal government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record informa-tion that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means to you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.

Account ownership. You can structure the ownership of your account(s) at your credit union in a variety of ways. Rights and obligations relating to the account will depend on the type of ownership on the account. Ownership interest in your account and any other associated accounts will be governed by the account contract established be-tween the account owner(s) and the credit union.

Sole accounts. If you are the sole owner of an account, only you can make withdrawals or otherwise have access to the funds in the account. Upon death, the funds in the account are distributed in accordance with the terms of your will, or, if you do not leave a will, the intestacy laws of the state of your residency.

Joint accounts. A joint owner has an equal right of access to the funds in a joint account and can withdraw all of the funds in the account to transact any business for the account at any time without the permission from or notification to the other joint owner(s). At the death of one joint owner, the funds automatically belong to the surviving joint owner(s). Joint owners do not have to be credit union members.

Payable on Death Accounts. Payable on death accounts belong to the person(s) listed as the owner or owners of the account during their lives. On death, the funds automatically belong to the person or persons designated as payable on death beneficiaries.

Organizational Accounts. The funds in an organizational account are owned by a corporation, trust (including a living trust), partnership, social club, sports team, etc. In order for the organization to be a credit union member, eligibility requirements must be met in accordance with the credit union’s charter or bylaws.

Accounts for Minors. We may require any account established by a minor to be a joint account with an owner who has reached the age of majority under state law and who shall be jointly and severally liable to us for any returned item, overdrafts, or unpaid charges or amounts on such account. We may pay funds directly to the minor without regard to his or her minority. Unless a guardian or parent is an account owner, the guardian or parent shall not have any account access rights. We have no duty to inquire about the use or purpose of any transaction.

Lien on shares. A lien will be impressed on all of your credit union shares and share dividends in an amount equal to that which you may owe your credit union because of a loan, dues, or any other charges payable by you to your credit union.

The lien may be enforced and your funds withdrawn and applied to your debt without further notice to you except where required by law, if you default in paying the amount you owe.

Termination of account. We may terminate your account or restrict access to your account at any time or may require you to close your account and apply for a new account if: (1) there is a change in owners or authorized signers; (2) there has been a forgery or fraud reported or committed involving your account at the credit union or at any other financial institution; (3) there is a dispute as to the ownership of the account or of the funds in the account; (4) any share drafts are lost or stolen; (5) there are excessive returned unpaid items not covered by an overdraft protection plan; (6) there has been a misrepre-sentation or any other abuse of any of your accounts; or (7) we reasonably deem it necessary to prevent a loss to us. You may terminate a sole account by giving written notice. We reserve the right to require the consent of all owners to terminate a multiple owner account. We are not responsible for payment of any draft, withdrawal, or other item after your account is terminated, however, if we pay an item after termination, you agree to reimburse us. Your regular credit union share account cannot be closed until all amounts you owe the credit union are paid in full and all associated accounts that you have with the credit union are closed.

Death of a sole account owner. We may continue to honor all transfer orders, withdrawals, deposits, and other transactions on a sole account until we are notified of an account owner’s death. Once we are notified of a sole account owner’s death, we may pay drafts or honor other payments or transfer orders authorized by the deceased account owner for a period of ten (10) days after that date unless we receive instructions from any person claiming an interest in the account to stop pay-ment on the drafts or other items. We may require anyone claiming a deceased owner’s account funds to indemnify us for any losses resulting from our honoring that claim. This agreement will be binding upon any heirs or legal representatives of any sole account owner.

Endorsem*nts. All check endorsem*nts must be made in the first one and one-half inches of the trailing edge of the back of the check. The trailing edge is opposite the left side of the face of the check. You will be responsible for any costs incurred by your credit union due to delays in returning checks deposited into your account that do not comply with these endorsem*nt standards.

Share insurance. Funds in your accounts at your credit union are insured to at least $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the United States Government. If you would like more information about your share insurance, a pamphlet, “Your Insured Funds”, is available upon request.

Governing law. The rights, duties, obligations, and liabilities of you and your credit union in connection with your mem-bership and account(s) are and shall be controlled by Maine and/or federal law as applicable and in effect at the time the rights, duties, obligations, and liabilities arise, other than as specifically set forth in this Agreement, your credit union charter and bylaws, or your specific account documentation. Business commercial members. Unlawful internet gambling enforcement act notice. Restricted transactions as defined in Federal Reserve Regulation GG are prohibited from being processed through this account or relationship. Restricted transactions generally include, but are not limited to, those in which credit, electronic funds transfers, checks, or drafts are knowingly accepted by gambling businesses in connection with the participation by others in illegal or unlawful Internet gambling.

Complaint resolution procedure. If you have a dispute with your credit union regarding your account(s), you may contact your credit union’s complaint representative or department and attempt to resolve the problem directly with your credit union. If your credit union fails to resolve the problem, write a letter detailing the problem and the resolution you are seeking to: Maine Bureau of Financial Institutions, Consumer Outreach Program, 36 State House Station, Augusta, Maine 04333-0036

To file a complaint electronically, you may contact the Bureau of Financial Institutions at the following Internet address: http://www.maine.gov/pfr/financialinstitutions/complaint.htm

The Bureau of Financial Institutions will acknowledge receipt of your complaint promptly and investigate your claim or refer it to the appropriate federal supervisory agency and inform you to whom it has been referred.

Regulation CC: Funds Availability Policy DisclosuresImportant information on deposits, holds, and withdrawalsYour ability to withdraw funds at maine state credit union

General policy. Our policy is to make funds from your deposits available to you on the same business day that we receive your deposit. Electronic direct deposits will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Once they are available, you can withdraw the funds in cash and we will use the funds to pay checks that you have written. For determining the availability of your deposits, every day is a business day, except Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays. If you make a deposit before 4:30 p.m. on a business day that we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit after 4:30 p.m. or on a day we are not open or in a night depository, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open.

Reservation of right to hold. In some cases, we will not make all of the funds that you deposit by check available to you on the same business day that we receive your deposit. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit. However, at least the first $200.00 of your deposit will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit. If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available on the same business day, we will notify you at the time you make your deposit. We will also tell you when the funds will be available. If your deposit is not made directly to one of our employees, or if we decide to take this action after you have left the premises, we will mail you the notice by the next business day after we receive your deposit. If you will need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask us when the funds will be available.

Longer delays may apply. In some cases, we will not make all of the funds that you deposit by check available to you on the first business day after the day of your deposit. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the fifth business day after the day of your deposit. The first $200 of your deposits, however, may be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit.

If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available on the first business day after the day of your de-posit, we will notify you at the time you make your deposit. We will also tell you when the funds will be available. If your deposit is not made directly to one of our employees, or if we decide to take this action after you have left the premises, we will mail you the notice by the next business day after we receive your deposit.

If you will need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask us when the funds will be available.

In addition, funds you deposit by check may be delayed for a longer period under the following circ*mstances:

We believe a check you deposit will not be paid. You deposit checks totaling more than $5,000 on any one day. You redeposit a check that has been returned unpaid. You have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the last six months. There is an emergency, such as failure of computer or communications equipment.

We will notify you if we delay your ability to withdraw funds for any of these reasons, and we will tell you when the funds will be available. They will generally be available no later than the seventh business day after the day of your deposit.

Holds on other funds. If we cash a check for you that is drawn on another financial institution, we may withhold the availabil-ity of a corresponding amount of funds that are already in your account. Those funds will be available at the time funds from the check we cashed would have been available if you had deposited it. If we accept for deposit a check that is drawn on another financial institution, we may make funds from the deposit available for withdrawal immediately but delay your avail-ability to withdraw a corresponding amount of funds that you have on deposit in another account with us. The funds in the other account would then not be available for withdrawal until the time periods that are described elsewhere in this disclo-sure for the type of check that you deposited.

Deposits at automated teller machines. Cash deposited in our own automated teller machines (ATM’s) will be made avail-able the same business day in which your deposit is made. Funds from any checks deposited in our own ATM’s will generally be made available the second business day after the day of your deposit. The credit union may, but is not required to, make

such funds available sooner. The credit union may also delay availability for reasons including but not limited to fraud, check alteration and endorsem*nt errors. Funds from any deposit (cash or check) made at ATM’s which your credit union does not own or operate will not be made available until the second business day after the day of your deposit. ATM’s that we own and operate are identified as our own machines.

Deposits at shared branching facilities. Funds from any check deposit made at shared branching facilities will generally be made the available the second business day after the day of your deposit. The credit union may, but is not required to, make such funds available sooner. The credit union may also delay availability for reasons including but not limited to fraud, check alteration and endorsem*nt errors. Special rules for new accounts. If you are a new member, the following special rules will apply during the first 30 days your account is open.

Funds from electronic direct deposits to your account will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Funds from de-posits of cash and the first $5,000 of a day’s totals deposits of cashiers, certified, teller’s, traveler’s, and federal, state, and local government checks will be available on the next business day after the day of your deposit if the deposit meets certain conditions. For example, the checks must be payable to you. The excess over $5,000 will be available on the fifth business day after the day of your deposit. If your deposit of these checks (other than a U.S. Treasury check) is not made in person to one of our employees, the first $5,000 will not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit. Funds from all other check deposits will generally be available no later than the seventh business day after the day of your deposit.

If we do not receive such final settlement, you are hereby notified and agree that we are entitled to a refund of the amount credited to you in connection with such entry, and the party making payment to you via such entry (i.e. the originator of the entry) shall not be deemed to have paid you in the amount of such entry.

9. Error Resolution. See Error Resolution on Page 16 of this agreement.

Electronic Funds Transfers and Cardholders Agreement

We are the Maine State Credit Union at P.O. Box 5659, Augusta, ME 04332-5659, and our telephone number is 800-540-8707.

You (if this is a joint account, singular pronouns shall include each of you) hereby agree to the rules and regulations affecting the issuance of the “Debit Card” provided by us for your convenience.

Personal Identification Number (PIN) will be your “remote banking signature”, and you are responsible for maintaining its confidentiality. The PIN should be memorized and not written, in order to prevent unauthorized use and so you may report its loss or theft accurately. Writing your PIN on the back of your card will be considered gross negligence when determining your liability for unauthorized transactions.

Authorized use. Only you are qualified to deposit or withdraw funds to or from your account(s) with the use of the Deb-it Card at participating merchant or financial institution locations or remote facilities, and positive identification may be requested by the participating merchant or financial institution prior to any transaction. You agree that you will not use or allow anyone else to use your card or PIN for any transaction that is illegal under applicable federal, state, or local law. You are responsible for all withdrawals (debits) to your account made by anyone else to whom you give your card. You cannot disclaim responsibility by notifying us, but we will block the card and/or your account in an attempt to prevent future losses if you so request. Regarding members without checking accounts. Members who don’t have a checking account may use their Debit Card at ATM machines as normal. A savings account is not considered a transaction account, so in order to comply with Regulation D they are allowed 6 PIN based transactions a month and are unable to perform non pin based transactions (Such as pro-cessing the card as a credit card during a point of sale transaction).

Consumer liability for unauthorized transactions.Tell us at once if you believe your card, PIN or other information which could provide electronic access to your account has been lost or stolen, or if you believe someone has used your card or PIN or accessed your account without your permission. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. If a Visa transfer was made using your card or card number without your permission and was not caused by your gross negli-gence or fraud, you will have no liability for this unauthorized transfer.

For all other transfers, including transfers made using ATMs, you can lose no more than $50.00 if you tell us within two (2) business days that your card or PIN was used to make a transfer without your permission. If you do not tell us within two (2) business days, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from making a transfer without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.00.

If your statement shows transfers you did not make or authorize, 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 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 period.

We are liable only for losses in excess of the limits stated. Non-Visa PINless debit card transactions. We allow non-Visa debit transaction processing. This means you may use your Debit Card ona PIN-Debit Network (a non-Visa network) without using a PIN to authenticate your transactions. (Visa rules

generally define a PIN-Debit Network as a non-Visa debit network that typically authenticates transactions by use of a personal identification number (PIN) but that is not generally known for having a card program.) The non-Visa debit network for which such transactions are allowed is ACCEL/Exchange®. Examples of the types of actions that you may be required to make to initiate a Visa transaction on your Debit Card include signing a receipt, providing a debit card number over the phone or via the Internet, or swiping the debit card through a point-of-sale terminal.

Examples of the types of actions you may be required to make to initiate a transaction on a PIN-Debit Network include initi-ating a payment directly with the biller (possibly via telephone, Internet, or kiosk locations), responding to a logo displayed at a payment site and choosing to direct payment through that network, and having your identity verified using known infor-mation derived from an existing relationship with you instead of through the use of a PIN.

Please be advised that the terms and conditions of your agreement with us relating to Visa debit transactions do not apply to non-Visa debit transactions. For example, the additional limits on liability (sometimes referred to as Visa’s zero-liability program) and the streamlined error resolution procedures offered on Visa debit card transactions are not applicable to transactions processed on a PIN- Debit Network.

Notification procedure. If you believe that your card , PIN or other information which could provide electronic access to your account has been lost or stolen, or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without permission, call us at the number shown at the beginning of this Agreement, or write us at the address given at the begin-ning of this Agreement or after business hours please call 1-800-472-3272.

Business days. Our business days are Monday through Friday; excluding state (Maine) and federal holidays. Types of transactions available and limits on such transactions. You may use your card to withdraw from or make depos-its to your share (savings) or checking account, and perform such other financial transactions as we may from time to time permit during the business hours of any remote financial facility. You may also pay for purchases at places that have agreed to accept your card (called Point-of-Sale purchases) These Point-of-Sale purchases will be deducted from your checking account.

Limitation on frequency and amount of transactions. For the protection of our members, we have limited the amount of each withdrawal from an account to five hundred dollars ($500.00) per day at a remote banking facility. You may purchase up to three thousand ($3,000.00) worth of goods or services each day at Point-of-Sale (POS) terminals.

Delays in posting transactions. Due to the nature of the “ATM” system, there will be delays between the time of any activity on your account(s) and the time it is reflected in our records of your account(s). Charge for originating shares and remote banking transaction. A transaction resulting in a withdrawal from or a deposit to your share or checking account using the Debit Card or your PIN or other information which could provide electronic access to your account is considered the same as any other type of withdrawal or deposit in regard to our service charge formulas. The type of account determines if and when a fee will be assessed. All transaction fees will be deducted from your checking account. If you do not have a checking account, they will be deducted from your share account. Please contact the credit union for current charges.

Fees. If you use an ATM or other electronic terminal that we do not own, you may be charged a fee by the terminal owner and any national, regional or local network used in processing the transaction. Any such fee(s) will be debited from your account if you elect to complete the transaction. To replace a lost or damaged card, you will be charged $5.00 per card. Foreign transaction fee. A 1% International Transaction Fee will be assessed on all transactions where the merchant country differs from the country of the card issuer. The converted transaction amount will be shown separately from the Interna-tional Transaction Fee on your share draft account statement. This fee will be assessed on all international purchases, credit vouchers, and cash disbursem*nts.

Visa will charge 0.8% for international transactions that do not involve currency conversions.

The exchange rate for transactions in a foreign country will be a rate selected by Visa from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which rate may vary from the rate Visa itself receives, or the government mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date plus the 1% International Transaction Fee.

Minimum balance required to obtain the AnnualPercentage Yield for the Dividend Period. Account Transfer and with-drawal limitations apply.

Rate information. The Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield on your accounts as of the last Dividend Declaration date are set forth on the table above. The Annual Percentage Yield is a percentage that reflects the total amount of dividends to be paid on an account based on the dividend rate and frequency of compounding for a 365-day period of the term of a Certificate account. The Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield may change monthly; for Certificates, the Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield are fixed and will be in effect for the entire term of the account. The Annual Percentage Yield for a Certificate account is based upon an assumption that dividends will remain on deposit until maturity. A withdrawal will reduce earnings.

Nature of dividends. Dividends are paid from current income and available earnings after required transfers to reserves. For Certificates, the Dividend Rates and Annual Percentage Yields are the prospective rates and yields that the Credit Union anticipates paying for the applicable dividend period.

Compounding and crediting. Dividends are compounded and credited as set forth on the table on page 19. The Dividend Period for each account is set forth on the table on page 19. The Dividend Period begins on the first day of the month and ends on the last day of the month. For certificate accounts, the dividend period also begins on the first day of the month and ends on the last day of the month.

Accrual of dividends. Dividends will begin to accrue on all deposits (cash or checks) on the business day you make the deposit to your account. If you close your account before accrued dividends are credited, accrued dividends will be paid.

Balance information. The minimum balance required to open each account and earn dividends is set forth above. Dividends and minimum balances are calculated by the Average Daily Balance method. The Average Daily Balance is determined by adding the full amount of principal in the account for each day of the period and dividing that figure by the number of days in that period. The dividend rate and corresponding Annual Percentage Yield paid on a regular share account are set forth above.

Tax reporting. Any prizes, awards and/or gifts of any amount equal to or greater than $10.00 will be reported as dividends on Form 1099-INT. This does not include cash or gift certificates redeemed as part of the “Extra Award program” or some similar language which is deemed appropriate.

account after dividends are posted. Maine State CU reserves the right to require at least seven days’ written notice before an intended withdrawal from a deposit account. This requirement does not apply to Share Draft (Checking) accounts.

Maturity. Your account will mature within the term set forth on the table on page 20 or on the maturity date set forth on your Certificate or Maturity Notice. The Credit Union will give the owner(s) at least 30 days’ notice prior to maturity.

Early withdrawal penalty on certificates. We may impose a substantial penalty if you withdraw any of the principal before the maturity date or the renewal date, if this is a renewable Certificate account.

Amount of penalty. For Certificates with a term of 6 months through 2 years, the amount of the early withdrawal penalty is 90 days’ dividends, whether earned or not. For Certificates with a term of 3 through 5 years, the amount of the early withdrawal penalty is 180 days’ dividends, whether earned or not.

How the penalty works. The penalty is calculated as a forfeiture of part of the dividends that have been or would have been earned on the account. It applies whether or not the dividends have been earned. In other words, if the account has not yet earned enough dividends, or if the dividends have already been paid, the penalty will be deducted from the principal.

Renewal policy. Your account is automatically renewed for the same term unless other instructions are given prior to the ma-turity date. Once your certificate renews, there is a 10 day window (grace period) to make changes, withdrawals or closures without penalty.

Non-transferable / Non-negotiable. Your account is non-transferable and non-negotiable. The funds in your account may not be pledged to secure an obligation of an owner, except obligations with the Credit Union. The information appearing in these Rate Schedules is accurate and effective for deposits as of July 5, 2016. If you have any questions or require current rate information on your account, please call Maine State Credit Union at 207-623-1851.

Eligible items. You agree to scan and deposit only checks as that term is defined in Federal Reserve Regulation CC (“Reg CC”). You agree that the image of the check transmitted to the Credit Union shall be deemed an “item” within the meaning of Article 4 of the Uniform Commercial Code as adopted in Maine (such scanned check image transmitted to

26

the Credit Union for credit to your account, a “Remote Item”). You agree that you will not use Mobile Deposit to scan and deposit checks or items that: (a) are payable to any person or entity other than you; (b) are drawn or otherwise issued by you or any other person on any of your accounts or any account on which you are an authorized signer or joint account holder; (c) contain obvious alteration to any of the fields on the front of the check or item, or which you know or suspect, or should know or suspect, are fraudulent or otherwise not authorized by the owner of the account on which the check or item is drawn; (d) were previously converted to a substitute check as defined in Reg CC without the Credit Union’s prior written consent; (e) were previously converted to an image replacement document as defined in Reg CC without the Credit Union’s prior written consent; (f) are drawn on a financial institution located outside the United States; (g) are remotely created checks, as defined in Reg CC; (h) are not payable in United States currency; (i) are dated more than six (6) months prior to the date of deposit; (j) are prohibited by the Credit Union; (k) are in violation of any federal or state law, rule, or regulation; or (l) are otherwise not acceptable under the terms of your Credit Union account.

C. Image quality. The image of an item transmitted to the Credit Union using Mobile Deposit must be legible and contain images of the front and back of the check. The image quality of the items must comply with the requirements established from time to time by the American National Standards Institute (“ANSI”), the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Board, or any other regulatory agency, clearing house or association. These requirements include, but are not limited to, en-suring the following information can clearly be read and understood by sight review of the check image: the amount of the check (both written and numeric); the payee; the signature of the drawer (maker); the date; the check number; the informa-tion identifying the drawer and the paying financial institution that is preprinted on the check including the MICR line; and all other information placed on the check prior to the time of an image of the check is captured (such as any required identifi-cation written on the front of the check and any endorsem*nts applied to the back of the check).

Any loss we incur from a delay or processing error resulting from an irregular endorsem*nt or other markings by you will be your responsibility. For a check payable to you and any joint owner(s) of your Credit Union account, the check must be endorsed by all such payees and you may only use Mobile Deposit to deposit such checks into a Credit Union account jointly owned by all such payees. If the check is payable to you or your joint owner, either of you can endorse it.

E. Receipt of items. We reserve the right to reject any item transmitted through Mobile Deposit, at our discretion, without li-ability to you. We are not responsible for items we do not receive or for images that are dropped during transmission. An im-age of an item shall be deemed received when you receive a confirmation from the Credit Union that we have received the image. Receipt of such confirmation does not mean the transmission was error free or complete. Following receipt of such confirmation, the Credit Union will process the image by preparing a “substitute check” or clearing the item as an image.

F. Availability of funds. You agree that items transmitted through Mobile Deposit are not subject to the funds availabili-ty requirements of Federal Reserve Board Regulation CC. Funds deposited using Mobile Deposit will generally be made available the 2nd business day after the day you make your deposit. The Credit Union may, but is not required to, make such funds available sooner. The Credit Union may also delay availability for reasons including but not limited to fraud, check alteration and endorsem*nt errors.

G. Disposal of transmitted items. After you receive confirmation that we have received an image, you must securely store the original check for 14 days after transmission to us and make the original check accessible to us at our request. Upon our request from time to time, you will deliver to us within two Business Days, at your expense, the requested original check in your possession. If not provided in a timely manner, such amount will be reversed from your account. Promptly after the14-day retention period expires, you must destroy the original check by first marking it “VOID” and then destroying it by cross-cut shredding or another commercially acceptable means of destruction. After destruction of the original check, the image will be the sole evidence of the original check. You agree that you will never re-present the original check. You understand that you are responsible if anyone is asked to make a payment based on an original check that has already been paid. For purposes of this Agreement, a “Business Day” means any weekday, excluding the following days: any federal banking holi-day observed by the Federal Reserve.

H. Returned deposits. Any credit to your account for checks deposited using Mobile Deposit is provisional. If original checks deposited through Mobile Deposit are dishonored, rejected or otherwise returned unpaid by the financial institution

You will reimburse us for all loss, cost, damage or expense caused by or relating to the processing of the returned item. Without our approval, you shall not attempt to deposit or otherwise negotiate an original check if it has been charged back to you. I. Mobile deposit security. If you are unable to complete your deposit promptly, you will ensure that your mobile device remains securely in your possession until the deposit has been completed. It is your responsibility to establish and maintain procedures to safeguard against unauthorized deposits. You will notify us immediately by telephone at 1-800-540-8707 with written notice at Maine State Credit Union, PO Box 5659 Augusta, Maine 04332, if you learn of any loss or theft of origi-nal checks.

J. You will ensure the safety and integrity of original checks from the time of receipt until the time of destruction. If warranted in our reasonable judgment, we may audit and monitor you, and you agree to cooperate with us to permit such monitoring, to confirm that you have satisfied your obligations under this Agreement. K. Deposit limits. We reserve the right to impose limits on the amount(s) and/or number of deposits that you transmit using Mobile Deposit and to modify such limits from time to time. Currently there is no limit on the number of deposits made in one day but there is a cap in deposit value of$10,000 in one business day. Unless otherwise specified by the Credit Union, changes to such limits shall be effective immediately upon notice to you via email, the Credit Union’s website, or via the Mobile Banking application.
