“You”, “your” and “yours” shall mean the member who owns the account at the credit union, as well as any other owner of the account. “We,” “us,” “our,” “the” and “Credit Union” shall mean the New Dimensions Federal Credit Union located at:
61 Grove Street, Waterville, ME 04901 (207) 872-2771
72 Cony Street, Augusta, ME 04330 (207) 430-0779

The “Agreement” shall mean this Membership Agreement and Disclosures. The 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. We are a non-profit and exist only to serve you, not to make money. As a credit union member, you own, operate and control the credit union through your Board of Directors. You are entitled to elect and be elected to the volunteer Board of Directors, comprised 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. In addition, the Credit Union works cooperatively with Maine’s other credit 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 the Credit Union. By signing your membership application and agreement you accept and agree to be bound by the provisions as set forth in this Agreement, the rate and fee disclosures applicable to your account(s) with the Credit Union, our charter and bylaws, and any amendments or changes in terms to any of them. 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 the 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 other documents evidencing the account. We reserve the right to change any and all terms and conditions of any of them. To the extent that those documents contain different terms from or terms that are not included in, this Agreement, the terms in those documents supersede the terms contained in this Agreement.
By signing your Membership Application, you represent that you have read this Agreement and understand its terms and conditions, and you agree to the terms and conditions in the Agreement.
Assignment: You may not assign this Agreement or your Membership to another party.
Severability: If one or more provision(s) of this Agreement is or are held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable under applicable law, the offending portions of such provisions, or such provisions in their entirety, to the extent necessary, shall be severed from this Agreement, and the balance of this Agreement shall be enforceable in accordance with its terms.
You agree that the Credit Union:
- May image documents related to your account and you will accept them as binding on you and the Credit Union.
- May take your picture for the purpose of identifying you when opening your account or at any time afterward.
- Has the right to submit documents you provide for legal review and you agree to be billed for any associated legal fees.
- May provide disclosures by e-mail or other electronic methods and those disclosures will be available for review and download from our website.
- May communicate with you by telephone (home, work, or cell), email, home banking and mobile banking messages, and any other available devices that do not compromise your financial privacy.
- May provide documents to be signed electronically through DocuSign, or other vendors, providing a secure, encrypted platform for sharing documents and obtaining signatures for account opening, loans, wire transfers, address changes, additional service applications, etc.
- May require a police report when you notify us of fraud or fraudulent transactions on your account.
- Will not be liable for misuse caused by your negligence in failure to secure your debit card, remote access devices, access codes/PIN, paper checks/share drafts, improperly endorsed checks, incomplete checks or money orders, or other behaviors that could result in access to your account.
- May freeze your account during an investigation of suspected fraud
- Will restrict access to your account upon your death. If there is no joint owner or beneficiary to distribute funds to, a representative should be appointed by the Probate Court and assets transferred to an estate account. An Affidavit for Collection of Personal Property in Small Estates under 18-A M.R.S.A. 3-1201 may be used for estates under $20,000.
- May charge fees (see Rate and Fee Schedule) to research transactions on your account and/or provide documents requested by you.
- Be provided an EIN for accounts that are not owned by a natural person, such as corporations, organizations, estates, trusts, etc.
- Will add an authorized signer to your account when you allow that person access to your account through the use of paper checks/share drafts, your debit card, Online Anytime, Telephone Access and any remote services that we provide. An authorized signer would not be an owner of the account.
- May deny membership services to anyone who has caused a loss while a member or as a party to a transaction involving a member, cannot provide identification and a Social Security Number for their account, cannot provide a physical address for their residence, or is suspected of identity theft through review of documents presented when compared to reports gathered by the Credit Union.
- May restrict your account if you misuse the services provided, such as: issuing nonsufficient funds checks; overdrawing your accounts; failure to pay funds owed for loans, fees or returned checks; harass or abuse Credit Union employees or members; conduct illegal activities on Credit Union premises; or damage the facilities or reputation of the Credit Union.
- May audit your accounts for proper documentation and notify you of any deficiencies. You will provide corrected or missing documents upon request.
- May verify that a trust is still in existence before turning over assets to any trustee.
- May hold funds while determining ownership of a minor’s account before releasing to a legal guardian.
- May require your actual signature on account opening documents in addition to the electronic signature captured by our data processing system or third-party vendor.
- Will not be responsible for obtaining more than one signature for transactions when 2 or more signatures are required. This is an internal accounting practice that the account owners will be responsible for enforcing.
Privileges of Credit Union Membership: Credit Union membership carries with it many privileges, including check cashing ability; the ability to open accounts other than ordinary share accounts; to make and receive electronic funds transfers and wire transfers; and to obtain loans and lines of credit. However, it is our policy to deny these privileges to members who cause a loss to us for any reason. Therefore, if you cause a loss to the Credit Union, and thus to your fellow members, you will lose your privileges of credit union membership.
Account Structure: Each member must maintain the minimum balance required in a share/savings account to establish membership. Under the share account, other types of accounts, or subaccounts, may be opened. Examples of other types of accounts available are share draft/checking, club accounts (Christmas, Tax, All Purpose), IRA, share certificates, CSA (tiered rate account), and HSA. The share account and subaccounts may each have individual or joint ownership or beneficiaries.
Account Ownership: You can structure the ownership of your account(s) in a variety of ways. Rights and obligations relating to the account will depend on the type of ownership of the account.
- Sole Accounts – If you are the sole owner of an account, only you can make deposits or withdrawals or otherwise have access to the funds in the account. Under Maine law, upon your 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 provisions of the Probate Code.
- Joint Accounts – Any joint owner has an equal right of access to the funds in a joint account and can withdraw, or pledge as collateral security to a loan or loans, all of the funds in the account at any time without 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. To become members, they would open an account in their name. Non-member joint owners are not eligible for credit union services and benefits.
- Payable on Death Accounts – Payable on death accounts belong to the person(s) listed as the owner(s) of the account during their lives. On death, the funds automatically belong to the person(s) designated as payable on death beneficiaries.
- Non-Consumer Organizational Accounts – Non-consumer accounts may be opened by members and other entities that meet membership qualifications in accordance with the Credit Union’s charter and bylaws. If the organization does not qualify for membership, it can be a joint owner on an account of an existing member. The funds in an organizational account are owned by a corporation, trust, partnership, social club, sports team, etc.
- Maine Uniform Transfers to Minors Act – The Uniform Transfers to Minors Act is located at 33 M.R.S.A. Section 1001 et. seq. An adult person may make a gift of money to a person who is a minor. A gift made to a minor under the Act is irrevocable and conveys legal title to the minor. Only the custodian of the account has the authority to withdraw the funds for the benefit of the minor. All funds in the account not expended by the custodian must be delivered to the minor upon reaching the age of eighteen years. For a full copy of the Act visit Maine Revised Statutes at maine.gov.
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 us because of a loan, fees, returned check or any other charges payable by you to the Credit Union. The lien may be enforced and your funds withdrawn and applied to your debt without further notice to you except as required by law if you default in paying the amount you owe. In addition to any other rights we may have under other agreements with you, we may hold any funds on deposit with us by you after termination of this Agreement for up to 14 calendar days following the expiration of any return or chargeback rights regarding any Remote Item processed by the Credit Union using the Remote Deposit Capture Service or, if later, until any other claims to such funds have expired.
Account Closing: Your share/membership account cannot be closed until all amounts you owe us are paid in full and all other accounts and subaccounts that you have with us are closed.
Endorsements: All check/share draft endorsements must be made in the first one and one-half inches of the trailing edge of the back of the check/share draft. The trailing edge is opposite the left side of the face of the check. You will be responsible for any costs incurred because of delays in returning checks or share drafts deposited into your account that do not comply with these endorsement standards. Checks endorsed for Remote Deposit Capture must contain the added restricted endorsement of For Mobile Deposit Only. See Mobile Banking User Agreement and Disclosure for more information.
Share Insurance: Funds in your accounts at the Credit Union are insured to a least $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the United States Government. Certain retirement accounts, such as IRAs and Keoghs, are insured separately up to $250,000. Copies of the NCUA brochure, Your Insured Funds, are available upon request.
Governing Law: The rights, duties, obligations, and liabilities of you and the Credit Union in connection with your membership 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, the Credit Union charter and bylaws, or your specific account documentation. Any lawsuit brought to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall only be brought in a state court in Kennebec County, Maine, or the nearest federal court to said County.
Substitute Checks: You acknowledge and agree that we may refuse to pay any check, including a substitute check (defined under 12 CFR Part 229.2(aaa)), that we have already paid. You also agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from and against any claim for damages or breach of any substitute check warranty which is asserted against us by any third party on account of any check drawn on your account or for which you receive payment.
Business Days: Our business days are Monday through Friday, excluding state and federal holidays. Branches are open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Drive up service is available from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on all business days.
Agreement Modification: This Agreement may be amended by us without prior notice to you when such a change is immediately necessary to maintain or restore the security of the system or a member’s account; however, we will notify you in writing twenty-one (21) days prior to the effective date of any change in any term or condition of the Agreement or your account, if such change would result in greater cost liability for you or decreased access to your account. Notice of Change may be in the form of a separate mailing, a Newsletter Announcement or a Statement Message.
Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Notice: We may report information about your account to the credit bureaus. Late or missed payments or other defaults may be reflected in your credit report.
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account
What this means for you: When you open an account, we ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that allows us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
Important Tax Information: You are required by law to provide us with your correct taxpayer identification number. If you are an individual, this number is your Social Security number. If you have not provided your correct identification number, you may be subject to a $50 penalty imposed by the Internal Revenue Service. In addition, interest, dividends and other payments that we make to you may be subject to backup withholding.
If backup withholding applies, we are required to withhold a percentage (currently 28 percent) of your interest, dividends and other payments made to you. Backup withholding is not an additional tax. If withholding results in an overpayment of taxes, a refund may be obtained.
Notification Procedure – Call (800) 326-6190, or write to New Dimensions Federal Credit Union, 61 Grove Street, Waterville, ME 04901.
Electronic and Remote Access – Tell us at once:
- If you believe your card, PIN, Access code, or other information which could provide electronic access to your account has been lost or stolen,
- If you believe someone has used your card or PIN or accessed your account without permission
- If you believe someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without permission
- If you believe that an electronic funds transfer has been made using information from your check without permission.
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 two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your card, PIN, or Access code, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your card, PIN or Access code without your permission.
- If you do not tell us within two (2) business days, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your card, PIN or Access code without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.
- If a Visa or Interlink transfer was made using your card or card number without your permission and was not caused by your gross negligence or fraud, you will have no liability for this unauthorized transfer.
Statement or Receipt Errors – Telephone or write to us, as soon as you can:
- If you think your statement or receipt is wrong
- If you need more information about a transaction listed on your statement or receipt.
We must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after we send you the first statement on which the problem or error appeared, thirty (30) days for Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) errors.
- Review your statement for transfers that you did not make, including those made by card, PIN or other means.
- 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 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.
Provide the following information:
- Your name and account number
- Describe the error or the transaction you are unsure of and a clear explanation of why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
- The dollar amount of the suspected error.
- If you tell us orally, we may require that you send your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days.
- We will tell you the results of our investigation within ten (10) business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly.
- If we need more time, we may take up to forty-five (45) days to investigate your complaint or question.
- For new accounts, Point-of-Sale or international transactions, we may take up to ninety (90) days to investigate your complaint or question.
- If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within ten (10) business days, or for Visa Debit Card purchases, five (5) business days, for the amount you think is in error, so you will have the use of the money during the time it takes to complete our investigation.
- For new accounts, we may take up to twenty (20) days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.
- If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and do not receive it within ten (10) business days, we may not credit your account.
- If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation within three (3) business days after we finish our investigation.
You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
Complaint Resolution Procedure: If you have a dispute with the Credit Union regarding your account(s), you may contact us and attempt to resolve the problem directly. If we fail to resolve the problem, communicate the problem and the resolution you are seeking to:
Consumer Outreach Program, Maine Bureau of Financial Institutions,
36 State House Station, Augusta, Maine, 04333-0036
To file a complaint electronically, you may contact the Maine Bureau of Financial Institutions at the following Internet address: http://www.maine.gov/pfr/financialinstitutions/complaint.htm
The Maine Bureau of Financial Institutions will acknowledge receipt of your complaint promptly and investigate your claim. You will be informed of the results of the investigation. When your complaint involves a federally-chartered credit union, the Maine Bureau of Financial Institutions will refer it to the appropriate federal supervisory agency and inform you to whom it has been referred.
You agree that:
- By signing the appropriate account documentation as provided by the Credit Union, you authorize us to establish a special share account for you to be known as a “share draft” or checking account. You authorize us to pay share drafts or checks, signed by you or any other joint owner of the account and to charge the payments against the share draft account.
- The Credit Union is under no obligation to pay a share draft which exceeds the balance in the share draft account; we may, up to a maximum of six (6) times per calendar month, pay such a share draft and charge the amount of resulting overdraft plus a service charge against any other share account from which the person who signed the share draft is entitled to withdraw shares; we are under no obligation to pay a share draft on which the date is more than six months old
- Transactions may not be processed in the order in which they occur. The order in which transactions are received and processed may impact the total amount of fees incurred by the member.
- Except for our negligence, the Credit Union is not liable for any action it takes regarding the payment of non-payment of a share draft.
- Notwithstanding Paragraph (d) above, we are not liable for any loss incurred or damage sustained due to the premature payment of a post-dated share draft.
- Any objection respecting any item shown on a monthly statement of the share draft account shall be waived unless made in writing to us on or before the thirtieth (30) day following the day the statement is mailed.
- All non-cash payments received on shares in the share draft account will be credited subject to final payment.
- The share draft account shall be subject to service charges and fees in accordance with the Rate and Fee Schedule adopted by the Credit Union from time to time and
- The use of the share draft account is subject to such other terms, conditions and requirements that we may establish from time to time
- This agreement is subject to the additional terms and conditions of any joint share account agreement that applies to a share account in the names of the joint owners of this share draft account; or, if there is no such agreement, this agreement is subject to the additional terms and conditions printed below.
Discretionary Overdraft Privilege
It is the policy of the Credit Union to comply with all applicable laws and regulations and to conduct business in accordance with applicable safety and soundness standards.
The Share Draft Agreement (and all amendments thereto) and its terms shall control any possible conflict, if any, between any provision of this Discretionary Overdraft Privilege Disclosure and the Membership Agreement and Disclosures.
The Overdraft Privilege is not a line of credit. However, if you inadvertently overdraw your account, we will have the discretion to pay the overdraft, subject to the limit of your existing Overdraft Privilege limit and the amount of the overdraft fee. The Credit Union is not obligated to pay any item presented for payment if your account does not contain sufficient available funds. Any discretionary payment by the Credit Union of an overdraft check (or item, such as an ATM withdrawal) does not obligate us to pay any other overdraft check (or item), or to provide prior notice of its decision to refuse to pay such check (or item).
Pursuant to our commitment to always provide you with the best level of service, now and in the future, if you maintain your account in good standing, including at least:
- A) Bringing your account to a positive balance within every thirty-five (35) day period for a minimum period of 1 business day;
- B) Not being in default on any loan or other obligation to the Credit Union and
- C) Not being subject to any legal or administrative order or levy,
We will have the discretion to pay overdrafts within the Overdraft Privilege limits, but payment by the Credit Union is a discretionary courtesy and not a right of the member or an obligation of the Credit Union. An Overdraft Privilege limit of $500.00 will be given at account opening to eligible account owners. Of course, any and all fees and charges, including without limitation, the non-sufficient funds fees (as set forth in our fee schedule), will be included as part of this maximum amount. It may be possible that your account will become overdrawn in excess of the Overdraft Privilege amount as a result of the assessment of a fee
The total of the discretionary Overdraft Privilege (negative) balance, which includes any and all fees and charges, including all non-sufficient funds/overdraft fees is due and payable upon demand, and each Account Owner and Authorized Signatory will continue to be liable, jointly and severally, for all such amounts, as described in the Membership Agreement and Disclosures. Our standard Overdraft fee will be imposed for overdrafts created by checks, ACH, ATM withdrawals, everyday debit card transactions, in-person withdrawals, or by other electronic means.
While we will have the discretion to pay overdrafts on accounts in good standing (as described above), any such payment is a discretionary courtesy, and not a right of the member or an obligation of the Credit Union and in our sole and absolute discretion, can cease paying overdrafts at any time without prior notice of reason or cause. If you do not maintain your account in good standing, the Overdraft Privilege limit will be reduced to $100 or removed.
For our consumer members, we will not pay overdrafts for ATM or everyday debit card transactions unless we have provided you with the notice required by §1005.17(b) of Regulation E and you have opted into the payment of these overdrafts.
Both consumer and commercial members may discontinue having Overdraft Privilege cover future transactions at any time by contacting one of our Member Services Representatives.
Important information on deposits holds, and withdrawals – Your Ability to Withdraw Funds at the Credit Union
General Policy: Our policy is to make funds available to you on the same business day as the day we receive your deposit (cash, checks, electronic funds transfers). At that time, you can withdraw the funds in cash and/or 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 state and federal holidays. If you make a deposit before 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, we will consider that day to be the date of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit after the hours stated or on a day we are closed for business or in a night depository, or through Remote Deposit Capture after 5:00 pm on a business day, the deposit will be credited to your account 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 share draft or check available to you on the same business day of your deposit. Depending on the type of share draft or check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit. However, the first $200 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 first 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 our employee, (such as through an ATM, Remote Deposit Capture, Shared Branch facility or drop box), or if we decide to take this action after you have left the premises, we will mail you the notice by the business day after we receive your deposit. If you need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask us when the funds will be available.
Holds on Other Funds: If we cash a share draft or check for you that is drawn on another financial institution, we may withhold the availability of a corresponding amount of funds that are already in your account. Those funds will be available at the time funds from the share draft or check we cashed would have been available if you had deposited it. If we accept for deposit a share draft or check that is drawn on another financial institution, we may make funds from the deposit available for withdrawal immediately but delay your availability to withdraw a corresponding amount of funds that you have on deposit in another account with the Credit Union. The funds in the other account would then not be available for withdrawal until the time periods that are described elsewhere in this disclosure for the type of share draft of check that you deposited.
Longer Delays May Apply: We may delay your ability to withdraw funds deposited by check into your account an additional number of days for these reasons:
- You deposit share drafts or checks totaling more than $5,000 on any one day
- You re-deposit a share draft or check that has been returned unpaid
- You have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the past six months
- We believe a share draft or check you deposit will not be paid
- There is an emergency such as failure of communications or computer 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 ninth business day after the day your deposit is otherwise available for withdrawal.
Deposits at Automated Teller Machines: Funds from any deposits, whether cash, share drafts or checks, made at automated teller machines (ATMs) will not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit. Deposits to NDFCU owned ATMs that accept deposits will be given immediate credit.
Special Rules for New Accounts: If you are a new member, the following special rules will apply during the first 90 days your account is open:
- The first $5,000 from a deposit of US Treasury checks will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit. The excess over $5,000 will be available on the second business day after the day of your deposit. Funds from wire transfers into your account will be available on the first business day after the day we receive the transfer.
- Funds from deposits of cash and the first $5,000 of a day’s total deposits of cashier’s, certified, teller’s, traveler’s, and state and local government checks will be available on the first 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 seventh business day after the day of your deposit. If you do not make the deposit in person to a Credit Union employee, the first $5,000 will not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit.
- Funds from deposits of share drafts drawn on this Credit Union will be available on the same business day as the day of your deposit.
- Funds from all other share draft or check deposits will be available not later than the seventh business day after the day of your deposit.
Foreign Checks: Checks drawn on financial institutions located outside the US (foreign checks) cannot be processed the same as checks drawn on US financial institutions. Foreign checks are exempt from the policies outlined in this disclosure. Generally, the availability of funds for deposits of foreign checks will be delayed for the time it takes us to collect the funds from the financial institution upon which it is drawn. The final settlement amount of the check may be affected by currency exchange rates. Any difference will be deposited or withdrawn from your account.

Personal Identification Number (PIN) and Access Codes: For the use of CU24 Visa Debit Card, Online Anytime, CUe-Statement, Telephone Access, Bill Pay, or any remote access, a PIN or Access code will be issued to you and will be your “remote banking signature.” You are responsible for maintaining its confidentiality. The PIN or Access code should be memorized and not written, in order to prevent unauthorized use and so you may report its loss or theft accurately.
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, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer,
- If the transfer would go over the credit limit on your overdraft line,
- If the remote access system was not working properly and you knew it was not working properly when you started the transfer.
- If circumstances beyond our control, such as fire or flood, prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.
- If we have reason to believe that the transactions involving your account may be unauthorized, fraudulent, illegal or otherwise improper.
We expressly disclaim all warranties that the components, including, but not limited to, cards, terminals, Telephone Access system, Internet access, will function properly or be available for use.

You agree to the rules and regulations affecting the issuance of the CU24 Visa Debit Card provided by us for your convenience.
Business/Commercial Members Are Prohibited from Engaging in Unlawful Internet Gambling under the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act: 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 fund transfers, checks or drafts are knowingly accepted by gambling businesses in connection with the participation by others in illegal and unlawful Internet gambling.
Authorized Use: Only you are qualified to deposit or withdraw funds to or from your account(s) with the use of the Visa Debit 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 agree that you will not use or allow anyone else to use your card or PIN for any gambling transaction over the Internet or in person. In addition, you understand that the credit union will decline these transactions if attempted.
Non-Visa PINless Debit Card Transactions: We allow non-Visa debit transaction processing. This means you may use your Visa Debit Card on a 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 networks for which such transactions are allowed are NYCE and ACCEL/Exchange.
Examples of the types of actions that you may be required to make to initiate a Visa transaction on your Visa 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 to make to initiate a transaction on a PIN-Debit Network include initiating 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 information 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.
Types of Transactions Available and Limits on Transactions: You may use your Visa Debit Card to withdraw from or make deposits to your account, and perform such other financial transaction 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 (POS)). These POS purchases will be deducted from your account.
CU24 Visa Debit Card 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) per day at a remote banking facility or ATM. You may buy up to One Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($1,500) worth of goods or services each day in our POS transfer service.
Delays in Posting Transactions: Due to the nature of the ATM system, there may be delays between the time of any activity on your account(s) and the time it is reflected on our records of your account(s).
Charge for Originating Shares and Remote Banking Transaction: A transaction resulting in a withdrawal from your account using the CU24 Visa 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 transaction 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 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. You may be charged a fee for a balance inquiry even if you do not complete a fund transfer or withdrawal.
Foreign transactions: Purchases and cash advances made in foreign countries and foreign currencies will be billed to you in US dollars.
- 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 International Transaction Fee on your account statement. This fee will be assessed on all international purchases, credit vouchers and cash disbursements.
- Visa charges 0.8% for international transactions that do not involve currency conversions.
- The exchange rate for transactions in a foreign currency will be a rate selected by Visa from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date; this may vary from the rate Visa itself receives, or the government mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date.
Visa assessed surcharge/access fee for ATM or manual cash disbursement transactions initiated outside of the US region: Visa assesses a cash disbursement fee of $1.25 on international ATM transactions where a surcharge fee has not been assessed. Visa assesses a cash disbursement fee of US 0.15% + US $0.50 on international ATM transactions where a surcharge fee has been assessed. The 0.15% applies to the amount of cash disbursed and not the surcharge fee. In other words, if $200 is disbursed and a $3 surcharge fee is applied, the 0.15% will be based on the $200, except in Visa Europe Region.
ATM Cash Disbursement Transaction outside the US region without an Access/Surcharge Fee Assessed: If a surcharge fee is not assessed on a qualified Visa and Plus ATM international and regional cash disbursement transaction, the ATM cash disbursement fee will be assessed based on the location of the acquirer as follows: Asian Pacific, 0.52% + US $0.65; Canada, US $1.25; Central/Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa, 0.42% +US $0.55, Europe, US $1.50; Latin America and the Caribbean, 0.52% + US $0.65.
Documentation of Transfer: You can get a receipt at the time you make any transaction (except inquiries) involving your account using an ATM and/or Visa Debit POS terminal. You will also receive on a monthly basis a statement of your account activity.
Overdrafts: If any withdrawals with your card create a negative balance in your account, you shall repay to us the amount of such overdraft. You may authorize us to pay ATM transfers or withdrawals and everyday debit card purchases that overdraw your account, including our regular overdraft fee. We are not obligated to pay any item presented for payment if your account does not contain sufficient funds.
Cancellation: Your card and PIN remain our property and immediate surrender of either may be required by us at any time. We may cancel the card, PIN and/or electronic funds transfer privileges at any time without notice or cause. Any cancellation or termination does not affect any of your existing liability to us.
Joint Accounts: All parties to joint share or share draft account(s) agree to be jointly and severally bound by this cardholder agreement. All cards must be returned to us prior to the addition or deletion of a name from any account subject to this agreement. Consumer reports (credit reports) may be obtained in connection with this application. If you request, you will be informed whether or not consumer reports were obtained and if reports were obtained, you will be informed of the names and addresses of the consumer reporting agencies (credit bureaus) that furnished the reports. The PIN may provide access to accounts owned by the primary member. Joint owners may have access to all of the primary member’s accounts at the Credit Union, including accounts owned singly by the primary member or jointly by the primary member and other persons.
ACH Funds Transfers: This Section Addresses Non-Consumer Accounts Only: You may desire to receive an electronic transfer of funds into your account. Such transfers may be transmitted through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) System. Your rights and responsibilities will be governed by Maine law, including Article 4A of the Uniform Commercial Code. Credit given by us with respect to these transfers is provisional until we receive final settlement through a Federal Reserve Bank or otherwise receive payment. If we do not receive payment for a transfer, then we are entitled to a refund from you in the amount credited to you on a provisional basis, and the originator of the transfer will not be considered to have paid the amount of the entry to your account. We are not obligated by the ACH rules to provide you with notice any time that we receive a transfer and make an entry to your account unless we have agreed to do so.

The device must capture an image of the front and back of each check to be deposited in accordance with the procedures; must read and capture the magnetic ink character recognition (MICR) line on each check; and must read and capture all such other data and information as is required by this Agreement or Federal Reserve regulations for the processing of these checks for payment. The Credit Union offers the benefits and convenience of the Service to you free. The Credit Union reserves the right to charge fees for the Service in the future.
B. 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(s) transmitted to the Credit Union shall each be deemed an Item or Remote Item, scanned and transmitted to the Credit Union for credit to your account. You agree that you will not use the Service to scan and deposit checks or items that: (a) are payable to any person or entity other than you; (b) could be processed by you as an internal transfer through Online Anytime; (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’s current procedures relating to the Services (the Procedures); (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 the Service 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, ensuring 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 information 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 identification written on the front of the Check and any endorsements applied to the back of the Check).

Any loss we incur from a delay or processing error resulting from an irregular endorsement 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 check into a Credit Union account jointly owned by all such payees.

We are not responsible for items we do not receive or for images that are dropped during transmission. An image 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. 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 the 14-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 any federal banking holiday observed by the Federal Reserve.
G. 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 drawee, or are rejected or returned by a clearing agent, for any reason, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the quality of the image, you agree that an original Check will not be returned to you, but that we may charge back the amount of the original Check and provide you with an image of the original Check, a paper reproduction of the original Check or a substitute check. 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.
H. Mobile Deposit Security. You will complete each deposit promptly. 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 800-326-6190 and with written notice at New Dimensions FCU, 61 Grove Street, Waterville, ME 04901, if you learn of any loss or theft of original checks. 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.
I. Deposit Limits. We reserve the right to impose limits on the amount(s) and/or number of deposits that you transmit using the Service and to modify such limits from time to time. 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.
J. Contingency Plan. In the event, you are unable to capture, balance, process, produce or transmit a file to the Credit Union, or otherwise comply with the terms or the procedures for any reason, including but not limited to, communications, equipment or software outages, interruptions or failures, you will transport or mail the originals of all checks to the closest Credit Union location.

This is your bill pay agreement and disclosure with the Credit Union.
You may use our Bill Pay service to direct the Credit Union to make payments from your designated account to the “Payees” you choose in accordance with the Agreement. “Payee” means anyone, including the Credit Union, you designate and that we accept as a recipient for payment. The terms and conditions of this Agreement are in addition to the account agreements, disclosures and other documents in effect from time to time governing your account (The Member Agreement and Disclosures).
How to Set up Payees/Payments: If you want to add a new Payee, select the Payee tab located in your Bill Pay application or speak to a service representative.
- You may add a new fixed payment to a Payee by accessing the service and entering the appropriate information. Most other additions, deletions, or changes can be made in writing or by using the service.
- We reserve the right to refuse the designation of a Payee for any reason.
- You may pay any Payee within the United States (including US territories and APO/AEO).
- We are not responsible for payments that cannot be made due to incomplete, incorrect or outdated information.
The Bill Paying Process:
Single Payments: A single payment will be processed on the business day that you designate as the payment process date, provided the payment is submitted prior to the daily cut-off time. The daily cut-off time is currently 2:00 pm Eastern.
A single payment submitted after the cut-off time on the designated process date will be processed on the next business day. If you designate a non-business date (generally weekends and holidays) as the payment process date, the payment will be processed on the first business day following the designated process date.
Recurring Payments: When a recurring payment is processed, it is automatically rescheduled by the system. Based upon your selected frequency setting for the payment, a process date is calculated for the next occurrence of the payment. If the calculated process date is a non-business day, it is adjusted based upon the following rules:
- If the recurring payment “Pay Before” option is selected, the process date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first business date prior to the calculated process date.
- If the recurring payment “Pay After” option is selected, the process date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first business date after the calculated process date.
- If the frequency settings for the recurring payment specify the 29th, 30th or 31st as the process date and that day does not exist in the month of the calculated process date, the last calendar day of the month is used as the calculated process date.
Single and Recurring Payments: The system will calculate the Estimated Arrival Date of your payment. This is only an estimate; please allow ample time for your payments to reach your Payees. Payments may be processed electronically or by paper check.
Cancelling a Payment: A bill payment can be changed or cancelled, any time prior to the cut-off time, on the scheduled process date.
Available Funds: You agree to have available and collected funds on deposit in the account you designate in amounts sufficient to pay for all bill payments requested, as well as, any other payment obligations you have to the Credit Union.
- We reserve the right, without liability, to reject or reverse a bill payment if you fail to comply with the above requirement or any other term of this agreement.
- If you do not have sufficient funds in the account and we have not exercised our right to reverse or reject a bill payment, you agree to pay for such payment obligations on demand.
- You further agree that we may charge any of your accounts with us to cover such payment obligations.
- We reserve the right to change the cut-off time. You will receive notice if it changes.
Amendment Termination: The Credit Union has the right to change this agreement at any time by notice mailed to you at the last address shown for the account on the Credit Union’s records, by posting notice in branches of the Credit Union, or as otherwise permitted by law.
The Credit Union has the right to terminate this agreement at any time. You may terminate this agreement by written notice to the Credit Union. The Credit Union is not responsible for any fixed payment made before the Credit Union has a reasonable opportunity to act on your termination notice. You remain obligated for any payments made by the Credit Union on your behalf.
Service Fees: There is no monthly service fee for bill pay accounts. There is no limit on the number of transactions per month.
Miscellaneous Fees: See Rate and Fee Schedule!
Liability: You are solely responsible for controlling the safekeeping of and access to your access code.
