In this Agreement, the words you and your mean each and all of those who apply for the loan. Plan means the loan. We, us and ours means this Credit Union.
Repayment – You promise to repay all amounts you owe under the plan plus interest. Payments are due on the last day of the month unless we set a different date at the time of an advance. If the addendum has no payment schedule for a sub-account, your payment will be determined at the time of each advance. Payments must include any amount past due and any amount by which you have exceeded any credit limit you have been given for a sub-account. You may repay all or part of what you owe at any time without any prepayment penalty. Even if you prepay, you will still be required to make the regularly scheduled payments unless we agree in writing to a change in the payment schedule. If you have a joint share draft account you will be responsible for paying all overdraft advances obtained by a joint holder of the share draft account. Payments will be applied in the order the Credit Union chooses.
Finance Charge – The dollar amount you pay from money borrowed is called a “finance charge” and begins on the date of each advance. A finance charge will be computed separately for each separate balance under the Plan. To compute the finance charge the unpaid balance for each day since your last payment (or since an advance if you have not yet made a payment) is multiplied by the applicable daily periodic rate. The sum of these amounts is the finance charge owed. The balance used to compute the finance charge is the unpaid balance each day after payments and credits to that balance have been subtracted and any additions to the balance have been made. In addition to interest, we may charge other finance charges which will be disclosed in the addendum.
Variable Rate – The variable rate is a daily periodic rate based upon an index which may increase or decrease from time to time. The variable rate loan index is based on prime rate as published in the Wall Street Journal.
Annual Percentage Rate – The cost of your credit as a yearly rate.
Down Payment – Based on application and credit history.
Security Interest – The Plan is secured by the shares and deposits in all joint and individual accounts you have with the Credit Union now and in the future. Shares and deposits in an Individual Retirement Account and any other account which would lose special tax treatment under state or federal laws if given as security are not subject to the security interest you have given in your shares and deposits. Additional security may be required depending on the subaccount under which an advance is requested. For example, a subaccount called “New Car Advances”means the security will be a new car. A subaccount called “Other Secured Advances” means you must offer security acceptable to the Credit Union for the advance. Property given as security for any advance under the Plan will secure all other amounts you owe under the Plan or under any other Agreement with us now or in the future. Property securing other loans with us may also secure the Plan. However, if you have given your dwelling as security for a loan with us, that dwelling will not secure an advance made under the Plan.
Fees and Charges – If you give us a security interest in certain types of property, we may charge you a filing fee to perfect our interest in the property. If so, the amount of the fee will be disclosed to you at the time you obtain an advance. We may also charge you other fees in connection with the Plan. Those fees are disclosed on the Addendum and will be added to your loan balance unless you pay them in cash.
Your Billing Rights – This notice contains important information about your rights and responsibilities under the Fair Credit Billing Act.
Notify Us In Case of Errors or Questions About Your Statement: If you think your statement is wrong, or if you need more information about a transaction shown on it, write to us at the address listed on your statement, as soon as possible. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the first statement on which the error or problem appeared. You may telephone us, but doing so will not preserve your rights. In your letter, please give us the following information:
- Your name and account number.
- The dollar amount of the suspected error.
- Describe the error and explain, if you can, why you believe there is an error. If you need more information, please describe the item you are not sure about.
Your Rights and Your Responsibilities After We Receive Your Written Notice: We must acknowledge your letter within 30 days, unless we have corrected the error by then. Within 90 days, we must either correct the error or explain why we believe the statement was correct.
After we receive your letter, we cannot try to collect any amount that you question or report you as delinquent. We can continue to bill you for the amount you question, including finance charges, and we can apply any unpaid amount against your credit limit. You do not have to pay any questioned amount while we are investigating, but you are still obligated to pay the parts of your statement that are not in question.
If we find that we made a mistake on your statement, you will not have to pay any finance charges related to any questioned amount. If we didn’t make a mistake, you may have to pay finance charges and you will have to make up any missed payments on the questioned amount. In either case, we will send you a statement of the amount you owe and the date that it is due.
If you fail to pay the amount that we think you owe, we may report you as delinquent. However, if our explanation does not satisfy you and you write to us within ten days telling us that you still refuse to pay, we must tell anyone we report you to that you have a question about your statement. And, we must tell you the name of anyone we reported you to. We must tell anyone we report you to that the matter has been settled between us when it finally is.
If we don’t follow these rules, we can’t collect the first $50 of the questioned amount, even if your statement was correct.
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 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.
