Annual Statement of Billing Rights as Required by Regulation Z

p>THIS NOTICE CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS AND OUR RESPONSIBILITIES UNDER THE FAIR CREDIT BILLING ACT.

Notify Us in Case of Errors or Questions about Your Statement

If you think your statement is wrong, or if you need more information about a transaction on your statement, write us (on a separate sheet) at the address listed on your statement. Write to us as soon as possible. We must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after we sent you the first statement on which the error or problem appeared. You can telephone us, but doing so will not preserve your rights. In your letter, give us the following information:

  1. Your name and account number.
  2. The dollar amount of the suspected error.
  3. A description of the error and an explanation, if you can, as to why you believe there is an error. If you need more information, describe the item you are unsure about.

If you have authorized us to make your loan payment automatically from your savings or checking account, you can stop the payment on any amount you think is wrong. To stop the payment, your letter must reach us three (3) business days before the automatic payment is scheduled to occur.

Your Rights and Our Responsibilities After We Receive Your Written Notice

We must acknowledge your letter within thirty (30) days, unless we have corrected the error by then. Within ninety (90) days, we must either correct the error or explain why we believe the statement was correct.

After we receive your letter, we cannot try to collect any amount you question or report you as delinquent. We can continue to bill you for the amount you question, including finance charges, and we can apply any unpaid amount against your credit limit. You do not have to pay any questioned amount while we are investigating, but you are still obligated to pay the parts of your obligation that are not in question.

If we find that we made a mistake on your statement, you will not have to pay any finance charges related to any questioned amount. If we didn't make a mistake, you may have to pay finance charges, and you will have to make up any missed payments on the questioned amount. In either case, we will send you a statement of the amount you owe and the date that it is due.

If you fail to pay the amount that we think you owe, we may report you as delinquent. However, if our explanation does not satisfy you and you write to us within ten (10) days telling us that you still refuse to pay, we must tell anyone we report you to that you have a question about your statement. And, we must tell you the name of anyone we reported you to. We must tell anyone we report you to that the matter has been settled between us when it finally is. If we don't follow these rules, we can't collect the first $50 of the questioned amount, even if your statement was correct.

Important Information Regarding the Computation of Your Loan Balance and Loan Finance Charges

The balance on which the finance charge is computed is the actual unpaid loan balance each day after credits are subtracted and new advances or other charges are added.

The finance charge is computed when you make a payment. For each day since your last payment, the unpaid balance in your account is multiplied by the corresponding daily periodic rate. The sum of these charges is the finance charge you owe on the loan account.
