Electronics Funds Transfers Act

Published: 10/02/2023

Electronics Funds Transfers Act

Electronic Funds Transfers Act is a regulation that protects consumer accounts with regards to electronic funds transfer (EFT) activity. EFT activity includes any transaction initiated through an electronic terminal, telephone, computer, or magnetic tape that instructs a financial institution either to credit or debit a consumer’s account. If you believe that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call us at (706) 295-9300 or write to us at PO Box 529, Rome, GA 30162.

In Case of Errors or Questions about Your Electronic Transfers

Telephone us at: (706) 295-9300

Write to us at:

GCB, A Division of LGE Community Credit Union
PO Box 529
Rome, GA 30162

Contact GCB as soon as you can if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.

  1. Tell us your name and account number (if any).
  2. Describe the error or the 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 ten (10) business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days 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 ten (10) business days, we may not credit your account.

For error involving new accounts, point-of-sale, or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to 90 days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to 20 business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.

We will tell you about the results within three business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
