Important information about procedures for opening a new account
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 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.
This document, along with any other documents we give you pertaining to your account(s), is a contract that establishes rules, which control your account(s) with us. Please read this carefully. If you sign the signature card or e-signature card or open or continue to have your account with us, you agree to these rules. You will receive a separate schedule of rates, qualifying balances and fees if they are not included in this document. If you have any questions, please call or email us.
This Agreement is subject to applicable federal laws and, to the extent not preempted, the applicable laws of the state of New York (except to the extent that this Agreement can and does vary such rules or laws). The body of state and federal law that governs our relationship with you, however, is too large and complex to be reproduced here. The purpose of this document is to:
1. Summarize some laws that apply to common transactions;
2. Establish rules to cover transactions or events which the law does not regulate;
3. Establish rules for certain transactions or events which the law regulates but permits variation by agreement; and
4. Give you the disclosures of some of our policies to which you may be entitled or in which you may be interested.
If any provision of this document is found to be unenforceable according to its terms, all remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
You agree, for yourself (and the person or entity you represent if you sign as a representative of another) to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the schedule of charges. You authorize us to deduct these charges directly from the account balance as accrued. You will pay any additional reasonable charges for services you request not covered by this Agreement.
Each of you also agrees to be jointly and individually liable for any account shortage resulting from charges or overdrafts, whether caused by you or another with access to your account. This liability is due immediately, and can be deducted directly from the account balance whenever the sufficient funds are available. You have no right to defer payment of this liability, and you are liable regardless of whether you signed the item or benefited from the charge or overdraft. This includes liability for our costs to collect the deficit including, to the extent permitted by law, our reasonable attorney's fees.
Deposits may be made in several ways: 1) using our website to electronically transfer funds from another account or 2) mailing us a check. Cash deposits are not permitted. It is your responsibility to insure that your deposit reaches us; and you inform us of the account to be credited. Otherwise, iGObanking will not be responsible for any loss that results. Any transaction that you conduct on Saturday, Sunday, a Federal holiday, or other days on which we are closed will be handled the following business day.
We may limit, refuse or return all or any part of a deposit without prior notice to you. We may return checks or cash that we receive for deposit into your account if we decide not to accept them. If a check or other deposit is returned to us unpaid or is otherwise charged back to us, we will deduct the amount of the check/deposit from your account. Funds will be available according to our funds availability schedule.
Unless clearly indicated otherwise on the account records, any of you, acting alone, who signs in the space designated for signatures on the signature card or e-signature card may withdraw or transfer all or any part of the available, unrestricted account balance at any time. Each of you (until we receive written notice to the contrary) authorizes each other person signing the signature card or e-signature card to endorse any item payable to you or your order of deposit to this account or any other transaction with us. We may refuse any withdrawal or transfer request which you attempt on forms not approved by us, by any method we do not specifically permit, which is greater in number than the frequency permitted, or which is for an amount greater or less than any withdrawal limitations. If you were to physically write a paper check against your e-checking account we may refuse to pay that check. Even if we honor a nonconforming request, we may treat continued abuse of the stated limitations (if any) as your act of closing the account. The fact that we may honor withdrawal requests that overdraw the available account balance does not obligate us to do so later. Funds will be available for withdrawal as set forth below under "Funds Availabiltiy Policy".
We may require not less than 7 days' notice in writing before each withdrawal from an interest-bearing account other than a time deposit, or from any other savings account as defined by Regulations D. Withdrawals from a time account prior to maturity or prior to any notice period may be restricted and may be subject to penalty. See your notice of penalty for early withdrawal.
Ownership of Account and Beneficiary Designation
These rules apply to this account depending on the form of ownership and beneficiary designation, if any, specified on the account records. We make no representations as to the appropriateness or the effect of ownership and beneficiary designations, except as they determine to whom we pay the account funds.
Individual Account - is an account in the name of one person.
Joint Account - is owned by two or more persons. Deposits and any additions to the account are the property of the owners as joint tenants with right of survivorship. This means that we may release the entire account to any owner during the lifetime of all owners. We may honor withdrawal requests from any owner during the lifetime of all owners. We may be required to release money in the account to satisfy a judgment against or other valid debt incurred by one owner. We may honor withdrawal requests from any surviving owner after the death of any owner, and may treat the account as the sole property of the surviving owner(s). Unless an owner directs us by written notice not to honor the withdrawal request of an owner, we will not be liable for doing so. After we receive such a notice, we may require written authorizations of any or all joint owners for further payments or deliveries.
A telephone transfer from this account to another account with us, if otherwise arranged for or permitted, may be made by the same persons and under the same conditions generally applicable to withdrawals. Unless a different limitation is disclosed in writing, we restrict the number of transfers from a savings and money market savings account to another account or to third parties, to a maximum of six per month. Other account transfer restrictions may be described elsewhere.
Amendments and Termination
We may change any term of this Agreement. Rules governing changes in interest rates are provided separately. For other changes, we will give you reasonable notice in writing or by any other method permitted by law. We may also close this account at any time upon reasonable notice to you and tender the account balance to you by mail. Notice from us to any one of you is notice to all of you.
We will provide you with an e-statement monthly. Your e-statement will be available to you on www.igobanking.com. You must examine your e-statement of account with "reasonable care and promptness". If you discover (or reasonably should have discovered) any unauthorized transactions you must promptly notify us of the relevant facts. As between you and us, if you fail to do either of these duties, you will have to bear the entire loss. You agree that the time you have to examine your statement and report to us will depend on the circumstances, but will not, in any circumstance, exceed a total of 14 days from the date the statement is available to you.
You further agree that if you fail to report any unauthorized transactions, or any other errors in your account within 60 days of the date the statement is available to you, you cannot assert a claim against us on any items in that statement, and as between you and us, the loss will be entirely yours. This 60-day limitation is without regard to whether we used ordinary care. The limitation in this paragraph is in addition to that contained in the first paragraph of this section.
You agree that we may (when permitted by law) set off the funds in this account against any due and payable debt you owe us or in the future, by any of you having the right of withdrawal, to the extent of such persons' or legal entity's right to withdraw. If the debt arises from a note, "any due and payable debt" includes the total amount of which we are entitled to demand payment under the terms of the note at the time we set off, including any balance the due date for which we properly accelerate under the note.
This right of offset does not apply to this account if : (a) it is an IRA or other tax-deferred retirement account, or (b) the debt is created by a consumer credit transaction under a credit card plan (but this does not affect our rights under any consensual security interest), or (c) the debtor's right of withdrawal only arises in a representative capacity, or (d) social security or supplemental security income payments are deposited into this account pursuant to an agreement with us which permits such direct deposit without presentation to you at the time of deposit. You agree to hold us harmless from any claim arising as a result of our exercise of our right to setoff.
Notice of Negative Information
Federal law requires us to provide the following notice to customers before any "negative information" may be furnished to a nationwide consumer-reporting agency. "Negative information" includes information concerning delinquencies, overdrafts or any form of default. This notice does not mean that we will be reporting such information about you, only that we may report such information about customers that have not done what they are required to do under our agreement. After providing this notice, additional negative information may be submitted without providing another notice. We may report information about your account to credit bureaus. Late payments, missed payments or other defaults on your account may be reflected in your credit report.
ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFERS YOUR
RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Indicated below are types of Electronic Fund Transfers we are capable of handling, some of which may not apply to your account. Please read this disclosure carefully because it tells you your rights and obligations for the transactions listed. You should keep this notice for future reference.
ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANFERS INITIATED BY THIRD PARTIES
You may authorize a third party to initiate electronic funds transfers between your account and the third party's account. These transfers to make or receive payment may be onetime occurrences or may recur as directed by you. These transfers may use the Automated Clearinghouse (ACH) or other payments network. Your authorization to the third party to make these transfers can occur in a number of ways. In some cases, your authorization can occur when the merchant posts a sign informing you of their policy. In all cases, the transaction will require you to provide the third party with your account number and bank information. This information can be found on your check as well as on a deposit or withdrawal slip. Thus, you should only provide your bank account information (whether on the phone, the Internet, or via some other method) to trusted third parties whom you have authorized to initiate these electronic funds transfers.

Error Resolution Notice
In case of errors or questions about your electronic transfers, email, call or write us at the telephone number or address listed in this Agreement, as soon as you can, if you think your e-statement or receipt is incorrect or if you need more information about a transfer listed on your e-statement or receipt. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we send the FIRST e-statement on which the problem or error appeared.
1. Tell us your name and account number
2. Describe the error or transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
3. Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.
If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days.
We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days (20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) after we hear from you and we will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (90 days if the transfer involved a new account, a point of sale transaction, or a foreign-initiated transfer) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days (20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your account. Your account is considered a new account for the first 30 days after the first deposit is made, unless each of you already has an established account with us before this account is opened.
We will tell you the results within three business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was not error, we will send you a written explanation.
You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

You may not make deposits into your account before maturity. You may make withdrawals of principal from your account before maturity only if we agree at the time you request the withdrawal. You can only withdraw interest credited to your account before maturity without penalty. You can withdraw interest anytime during the term of the certificate of deposit after it is credited to your account. IRS rules and regulations apply to all Individual Retirement Accounts.
Early withdrawal penalties (a penalty may be imposed for withdrawals before maturity). Penalty may reduce principal.
- If your account has an original maturity between one year and less than three years: The fee we may impose will equal six months simple interest on the amount withdrawn subject to penalty. Plus the retail value of the gift received, applicable sales tax and shipping fees.
- If your account has an original maturity between three years and less than seven years: The fee we may impose will equal one year simple interest on the amount withdrawn subject to penalty. Plus the retail value of the gift received, applicable sales tax and shipping fees.
In certain circumstances such as the death or incompetence of an owner of this account, the law permits, or in some cases requires, the waiver of the early withdrawal penalty.
Withdrawal of interest prior to maturity - The annual percentage yield assumes interest will remain on deposit until maturity. A withdrawal will reduce earnings.
Automatically renewable time account - This account will automatically renew at maturity. You may prevent renewal if you withdraw the funds in the account at maturity (or within any grace period mentioned below) or we receive written notice from you within any grace period mentioned below. We can prevent renewal if we mail notice to you at least 30 calendar days before maturity. If either you or we prevent renewal, interest will continue to accrue after the final maturity for up to seven calendar days. The interest rate will be the prevailing rate in effect immediately at maturity. Each renewal term will be the same as the original term, beginning on the maturity date. The interest rate will be the same we offer on new deposits on the maturity date, which have the same term, minimum balance (if any) and other features as the original time deposit. You will have seven calendar days after maturity to withdraw the funds without a penalty. Automatic renewal of your account does not entitle you to a gift.
We may require not less than 7 days' notice in writing before each withdrawal from an interest-bearing account other than a time deposit, or from any other savings account as defined by Regulation D. Withdrawals from a time account prior to maturity or prior to any notice may be restricted and may be subject to penalty. See your notice of penalty for early withdrawal.
