IN CASE OF ERRORS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR ELECTRONIC TRANSFERS, TELEPHONE US AT 712-364-3181 OR 1-888-270-2438

 

First State Bank, P.O. Box 276, 200 Moorehead Ave, Ida Grove, IA  51445

 

Write us at the above address shown as soon as you can, if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer on the statement or receipt.  We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent you the FIRST statement on which the error or problem 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 there 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 compliant 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 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 the 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 has an established account with use before the account is opened.

 

We will tell you 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.
