PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (P.I.N.).
your “remote banking signature.” You are responsible for maintaining its
confidentiality. The P.I.N. should be memorized and not written, in
order to prevent unauthorized use, and so you may report its loss or
transfer funds to the account(s) of a family member on which you are a
joint owner; however, if you do so, you agree to provide a copy of the
Agreement to each owner of the account(s). The CU internet personal
identification number is issued only to the first member named on a
savings account and offers access to other accounts owned by that
member. You should not disclose your P.I.N. to any joint owner of your
savings account. If you do, the joint owner will have access to all your
accounts at SAIF FCU owned by you, either individually or jointly. If
you give access to your joint owner who does not have a primary account
of their own with SAIF FCU, we are not liable for any unauthorized
transactions. The joint owner must have a savings account with SAIF FCU
in order to have a separate PIN to access the primary owner’s account.
This will give the joint owner access to their account and yours.
