Transfers and limitations.
Telephonic and electronic transfers from a savings or money market account are limited to a total of six per month. This includes transfers made via DirectLine, e-branch, automatic overdraft coverage, ACH Automated Clearing House, EFT Electronic Funds Transfer, and transfers requested by voice over the phone. (Transfers with your signature and transfers made via ATM or VISA Check Card are unlimited.) You may transfer up to the available balance in your account at the time of transfer. We reserve the right to refuse any transaction that would draw upon insufficient or unavailable funds, lower an account below a required minimum balance, or otherwise require us to increase our required reserve on the account.
The account balance and transaction history information may at times be limited to recent account information involving your accounts. Also, the availability of funds for transfer may be limited due to the processing time for transactions and our Funds Availability Policy.
We reserve the right to terminate this agreement at any time. You may terminate this agreement at any time by notifying us in writing at:
NH Federal Credit Union 70 Airport Road

Termination shall be effective the first business day following receipt of your written notice. Termination will not affect the rights and responsibilities of the parties under this agreement for transactions initiated before the effective date of termination.
You are responsible for all transfers you authorize under this agreement. If you permit other persons to use your PIN or Password, you are responsible for any transactions they authorize or conduct on any of your accounts.
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your PIN (Personal Identification Number) or Password has been lost or stolen. You could lose all the money in your account plus your maximum overdraft lines of credit. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. If you believe your PIN or Password has been lost or stolen, and you tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your PIN or Password without your permission.
If you do NOT tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your PIN or Password, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your PIN or Password without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500. Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, tell us AT ONCE. If you do not tell us within sixty days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the sixty 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 hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
Personal Identification Number (PIN) and Password.
You should guard the secrecy of your PIN and/or Password. Memorize them to maintain confidentiality. If you forget your PIN or Password, notify us in writing. We will not give them out over the telephone. You agree to take all reasonable precautions that no one else learns your PIN or Password.
