Midwest Community Federal Credit Union uses the ACH Network to execute my A2A requests, but other methods of transfer may also be used.

Authorization to Transfer Funds Using A2A Service
I hereby represent and warrant to Midwest Community Federal Credit Union its directors, officers, employees and agents that I own each Eligible Midwest Community Federal Credit Union Account, Verified Account and have full right and authority to all the funds on deposit therein. In addition, I authorize Midwest Community Federal Credit Union to execute and charge my Eligible Midwest Community Federal Credit Union Account(s) for any A2A transfer request to a Verified Account and from a Verified Account to my Eligible Midwest Community Federal Credit Union Account, including any related fee, subject to any applicable limit as to dollar amount, time delays to complete certain types of transfers (i.e., Next Day or Standard transfers) when my A2A transfer requests are made in accordance with the procedures established by Midwest Community Federal Credit Union. I understand and acknowledge that Midwest Community Federal Credit Union has no obligation to execute any request for a transfer using A2A that is not initiated in accordance with such procedures. I further acknowledge that the acceptance and processing of an A2A transfer request is subject to the terms and conditions stated in this Agreement, as amended from time to time. This authorization shall remain in full force and effect until I have informed an Electronic Service Provider by telephone at (419)783-6500 that I have revoked my authorization and you have a reasonable opportunity to act on it.
Information Relied Upon by Midwest Community Federal Credit Union
I acknowledge and agree that Midwest Community Federal Credit Union is relying upon the information I provide in originating an A2A transfer on my behalf. Any errors in the information, including Incorrect or inconsistent account names and numbers or the ABA number or name of the financial institution holding my Verified Account are my responsibility. Although I represent and warrant to you that I am the owner of each Verified Account and describe it to you by name and account number (or any other number), I understand and agree that if A2A transfer instructions identify a Verified Account by name and account number, the relevant financial institution may execute those instructions by reference to the account number only, even if such number does not correspond to the name. I understand that financial institutions holding my Verified Accounts may not investigate discrepancies between names and numbers. In addition, I agree that Midwest Community Federal Credit Union has no responsibility to investigate discrepancies between names and account numbers.
Limited Power of Attorney
In connection with any request to transfer funds using the A2A service, I hereby give Midwest Community Federal Credit Union a limited power of attorney and appoint Midwest Community Federal Credit Union as my true and lawful attorney-in-fact and agent, with full power of substitution and re-substitution, for you and in your name, place and stead, in any and all capacities, to originate deposits into or withdrawals from my Verified Accounts, with full power and authority to do and perform each and every act and thing requisite and necessary to be done in connection with effecting such funds transfers, verifying the content and authenticity of any A2A transfer instruction, complying with all applicable security procedures applicable to such transfers, as fully to all intents and purposes as I might or could in person. Once Midwest Community Federal Credit Union has actual knowledge that I wish to cease using the A2A service as provided in this Agreement or as otherwise permitted in this Agreement and has a reasonable opportunity to act on such knowledge, this limited power of attorney shall be deemed revoked; provided, however, that any act done by Midwest Community Federal Credit Union in good faith before you have actual knowledge of termination by me and a reasonable opportunity to act on such knowledge shall be deemed to be authorized by me. I understand and agree that at all times my relationship with the financial institution that maintains each Verified Account is independent of Midwest Community Federal Credit Union and my use of the A2A service. I shall not hold Midwest Community Federal Credit Union responsible for any acts or omissions by the financial institution maintaining a Verified Account with respect to it, including without limitation any modification, interruption or discontinuance of it. I ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WHEN Midwest Community Federal Credit Union ORIGINATES A REQUEST FOR A TRANSFER USING THE A2A SERVICE, Midwest Community Federal Credit Union IS ACTING AS MY AGENT. I AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS Midwest Community Federal Credit Union AS MY AGENT UNDER THIS LIMITED POWER OF ATTORNEY AS MORE FULLY DESCRIBED BELOW.
I agree that Midwest Community Federal Credit Union will initiate a funds transfer request for me only after I access my Eligible Midwest Community Federal Credit Union Account(s) through its online banking service (MC Online) using the member User ID and password. Midwest Community Federal Credit Union shall not be liable for any delay in processing my A2A transfer request if I fail to comply with this security procedure (or any other that may be established by Midwest Community Federal Credit Union from time to time). I acknowledge and agree that Midwest Community Federal Credit Union has established commercially reasonable security procedure for the A2A service. I understand that the security procedure is designed to authenticate my identity before accepting a request for an A2A transfer and not to detect errors in the content of my instruction.
Verification of Accounts at Other Financial Institution
After agreeing to this Agreement and providing any additional information requested, I may enroll accounts that I hold at other financial institutions (each, a “Third Party Account”) in the A2A service. I hereby authorize you to verify a Third Party Account by one of two means:
- Confirmation of Trial Deposits. I authorize you to verify my Third Party Account through the use of a trial transfer, in which one or more low value payments will be credited to the account. Sometimes, a low value payment will be both credited to and debited from the account. The trial credit will always occur before the trial debit and will always be of the same or lesser amount. In either case, you will then ask me to verify the amount of the each deposit made into such account.
- Online Verification. If my Third Party Account is accessible online, I authorize you to validate the account by providing you with my online access credentials so you can confirm my ownership of such account online. I understand and agree that: (a) I am under no obligation to provide you with my access credentials for my Third Party Account, (b) you will use this information to verify my ownership of the Third Party Account only; and (c) will not retain the information about my access credentials, except during the period necessary to complete the verification process, after which it will be destroyed. Once the verification process is successful, each Third Party Account will become a Verified Account.
Funds are typically credited to my account within 3 Business Days (“Business Day” means Monday through Friday, excluding Federal holidays) provided that ACH posting times are met at outside financial institutions. The Business Day on which a request for a transfer is made begins at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (“EST”) and ends at 4:00 p.m. EST of the following Business Day.
Limits on A2A Transfers
The following limits on transfer amounts are calculated against all outstanding transfers, which are transfers that have been requested but not yet paid.
Maximum (one way)……….$3,000
** For purposes of the “monthly” transfer limits for the A2A service, a month means the thirty (30) calendar days immediately prior to the date on which an A2A transfer request is executed (i.e., originated) by Midwest Community Federal Credit Union on my behalf.
Service Fees and Charges
I understand and agree that I am responsible for paying all fees associated with my use of the A2A Service. I authorize Midwest Community Federal Credit Union to charge my Eligible Midwest Community Federal Credit Union Account (or any other of my accounts at Midwest Community Federal Credit Union) for any service fees and charges applicable to transfers requested through the A2A service in accordance with Midwest Community Federal Credit Union’s fee schedule in effect at the time I make an A2A transfer request. Midwest Community Federal Credit Union reserves the right to change the fees charged for the use of the A2A service. A copy of the Fee Schedule for the A2A service is provided at the end of the Agreement.
Execution of a Request for an A2A Transfer
My request for an A2A transfer will be executed on the current Business Day. The business Day on which a request for an A2A transfer is made begins at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (“ET”) and ends at 4:00 p.m. EST of the following Business Day. If my request for an A2A transfer is received by Midwest Community Federal Credit Union on a day that is not a Business Day or on a Business Day after the established cut-off hour, you will not process my request until the next Business Day.
Actions Taken Upon an Unsuccessful A2A Transfer
If a requested funds transfer could not be completed, I understand that Midwest Community Federal Credit Union, upon learning that the A2A transfer has failed, will make reasonable effort to complete the transfer again. If the second attempt is successful, the additional processing could delay the completion of the funds transfer by one or more Business Days. If the funds transfer fails a second time, you will notify me by e-mail so that I may contact the financial institution where my Verified Account is held in order to understand the reason for such failure.
Rejection of an A2A Transfer Request
You reserve the right to reject my funds transfer request. You may reject my request if the dollar value of one or more of my transfer requests exceed my daily or monthly transfer limit (as more fully described above), if I have insufficient available funds in my Eligible Midwest Community Federal Credit Union Account for the amount of the A2A transfer, plus any applicable fee, if my request is incomplete or unclear, if you identify a security risk related to a requested transfer or if you are unable to fulfill my request for any other reason. I understand and agree that if you reject a request for an A2A transfer for one or more of the reasons set forth above, I will be informed of the rejection during my online session or by e-mail as soon thereafter as you have determined to reject the request.
Cancellations, Amendments or Recalls of an A2A Transfer Request
I may cancel or amend a funds transfer request only if you receive my request prior to your execution of the funds transfer request and at a time that provides you with a reasonable opportunity to act upon that request. If my funds transfer request has been executed by Midwest Community Federal Credit Union, I understand I have no right to cancel or amend the payment.
Transfers Subject to the Rules of the Third Party Accounts
Additionally, all funds transfers are also subject to the rules and regulations governing the relevant Third Party Accounts. I agree not to request any A2A transfers from or to Verified Accounts that are not allowed under the rules or regulations applicable to such accounts.
Delays, Non-Execution of Funds Transfer Request
I agree that Midwest Community Federal Credit Union shall not be responsible for any delay, failure to execute, or misexecution of my funds transfer request due to circumstances beyond Midwest Community Federal Credit Union’s reasonable control- including, without limitation, any inaccuracy, interruption, delay in transmission, or failure in the means of transmission of my funds transfer request to the bank or execution of such request by the bank, whether caused by strikes, power failures, equipment malfunctions, or acts or omissions of any intermediary bank or beneficiary bank. Midwest Community Federal Credit Union MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED -INCLUDING THE FAILURE OF ANY INTERMEDIARY BANK OR BENEFICIARY BANK TO CREDIT MY BENEFICIARY WITH THE AMOUNT OF THE FUNDS TRANSFER AFTER RECEIPT OF SAME WITH RESPECT TO ANY MATTER.

I understand that if I think that someone else has learned my access credentials for online banking or an unauthorized A2A transfer or other type of online transaction has been made from one of my accounts, I must notify you immediately by telephone at (419)783- 6500 or, if I am unable to telephone you, in writing to: Midwest Community Federal Credit Union, P.O. Box 608, Defiance, OH, 43512. By providing such prompt notice, I may limit my personal liability for unauthorized transfers.
Significance of E-Mail Notices About A2A Service
I agree that all e-mail notices sent to me regarding status of my A2A transfer requests are simply service messages and will not constitute a transaction receipt or an official bank record with respect to an A2A transfer.
