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

LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORIZED USE.

If You fail to tell Us within 60 days after We mail You the first periodic statement on which the transfer appears, You could lose the entire Account balance if We can prove We could have stopped someone from taking Your money if You had given Us notice in time. If a valid reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) keeps You from giving Us notice, We will extend the time periods. Exception: You will have no liability or unauthorized use for Your Check Card as long as You report the loss or theft of Your Check Card within two business days. If You report such loss or theft after two business days, or provide proper notification of other unauthorized Check Card transactions, Your liability for unauthorized use will not exceed $50. These exceptions do not apply to transactions originating at an ATM or from Your gross negligence and/or fraudulent use of Your Check Card.
