  • How long will my dispute take?

    We will advise you of the results of our investigation within 10 business days after we hear from you, and if we have made an error, it will be corrected promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question (90 days for transactions at a point of sale terminal or outside of the United States). If we decide to do this, we will provisionally recredit your Account within 10 days 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.

  • I don’t recognize a transaction on my account. How do I dispute the charge?

    If you do not recognize a transaction on your account, please contact the Bank immediately. We will begin investigating any unauthorized transactions immediately. At anytime we may request you to complete the Bank’s ATM/Debit Card dispute form, located by using the following link;
