In this Agreement and Disclosure statement ("Agreement"), the words
"you" and "your" mean each and all of those who agreed to be bound by this Agreement at the time of application. Use of the card acknowledges receipt and agreement to the terms. "Card" means the ATM or VISA Check/ATM Card and any duplicates, renewals or substitutions the Credit Union issues to you. "Account" means the account designated on the application for your Card; "Credit Union" means the Credit Union whose name appears on this Agreement or anyone to whom the Credit Union transfers this Agreement. "Transaction" means use of the Card or the Account number on the Card and a Personal Identification Number or Code ("PIN") required to perform a transaction with the Card.

1. Issuance of Card. You have requested the Credit Union to issue you a Card that can be used to access funds in your Account. The Credit Union will issue you a PIN that must be used with the Card for Transactions that require a PIN. Do not reveal your PIN to anyone or write it down where it is available to others.

2. Responsibility for Transactions. You are responsible for any and all Transactions you make with the Card and/or Transactions that you authorize another person to make with the Card. If the Account is a joint account, all Transactions involving the Account are binding on all Account holders. Section 10 further details your responsibility for unauthorized transactions.

3. Use of the Card.
You may use the ATM and Visa Check/ATM card and PIN to do the following:

  • withdraw cash from your Account at ATMs and point-of-sale (POS) terminals.
  • make deposits at NYCE machines in NJ and any CO-OP Network.
    deposit taking ATM terminals.
  • transfer money between allowable accounts.
  • balance inquiries.

You may use the Visa Check/ATM Card without the PIN to do the following:

  • purchase goods and/or services at places that accept VISA cards (these are point of sale terminals or POS Transactions).
  • order goods or services by mail, fax and/or telephone from places that accept VISA cards.
  • make automatic payments from your Account to pay bills and/or other charges provided that the payee agrees to accept payments in this manner.

Some of these services may not be available at all ATM locations and/or POS terminals.

For POS Transactions processed as VISA Check/ATM Card Transactions, you must press the "Credit" button on the available keypad.

Use of the Card, the Account number on the Card, the PIN or any combination of the three for automatic payments, purchases, or to obtain cash from merchants, financial institutions or others who honor VISA cards is an order by you for the withdrawal of the amount of the Transaction from your Account. Each Transaction with the Card will be charged to your Account on the date the Transaction is posted to your Account.

Use of the Card is subject to the terms and conditions of your Account and any future changes to your Account may affect your use of the Card.
