Transaction information is available for approximately 13 months. If you prefer to retain information longer, we recommend that you save your transaction information on a regular basis and download it to a financial software management package. You will also have access to eStatements by separately registering for this service.
You may be unable to access account information, if that account is closed by either you or by CUA. Passwords that you put on your credit union accounts, will not apply to Online Banking.
From time to time, our system may be unavailable due to processing updates, required maintenance, and circumstances beyond our control. We will make every effort to work with our vendors to re-establish connections as soon as possible and limit the unavailable time.
Security and your Password
Your online security is a top priority with CUA. For that reason, the security information below has been chosen by us to protect your accounts and information against unauthorized access.
To protect your information, we require a 128-bit encryption level to access your accounts. If you are unsure of your encryption level, please check your web browser information. If you determine that your browser does not support 128-bit encryption, you will need to download the latest version of your web browser in order to access the secure pages of the website.
We also have implemented additional security levels that require you to authenticate yourself by more than one method. This additional authentication will provide additional security protection that will prevent access to your information by others. These methods are 1) security questions/answers you supply, 2) a piece of information you choose to appear on all your Online Banking screens, 3) SMS or Email text message which require a short code entered to verify your identity, 4) your unique username and 5) your Online Banking Password. If you think your password or username may have been compromised, you must contact CUA immediately. Never give your password or username to anyone via phone, email or any unsolicited manner. CUA will never ask for your personal private information in this manner. If you suspect that you may have given your information to someone erroneously, please contact us immediately so we may help you protect your information.
Multiple attempts at logging in with a wrong password, will lock your access to your Online/Mobile Banking accounts. If this occurs, you may click the ‘forgot password’ link to reset your password and unlock your account. You will be required to answer a series of security questions and will be required to verify your identity via a verification code which will be sent to your mobile telephone number or email address. If you have continued difficulties, you may call us and with the proper authentication, we will reset you for continued use.
For security purposes your session will automatically close after the pre-determined time you have chosen as your log off. When you give someone your Online Banking Username and password, you are authorizing that person to use your service and you are responsible for all transactions that person performs while using your service. All transactions that person performs, even transactions you did not intend or want performed will be authorized transactions. If you notify us that the person is no longer authorized, then only transactions that person performs after the time you notify us are considered unauthorized. Transactions that you or someone acting with you initiates with fraudulent intent are also authorized transactions.
Administrators (Applies to Business Online Banking only)
Online Banking for Business allows business owners to establish a separate logon for others to assist in managing business accounts. Sub-users are established in the Business Administration Widget in Online Banking and can be assigned access to view and/or perform transactions on particular accounts. The Login and Password for sub-users is completely managed by the Company Administrator or another sub-user with appropriate permissions. Company Administrators are responsible for any transactions that are performed by sub-users. In addition, Credit Union of America will not be held liable for unauthorized transactions occurring as a result of inadequate security within the user’s control.
Your Email Address
From time to time, we may send messages to your external email address. If, for any reason your external email address changes or becomes disabled, please update your personal information from within Online Banking. To update your contact information:
Click your name in the upper right hand corner of the page>Click Settings>Contact>Click Edit on what needs to be changed.
Joint owners on accounts should utilize their own separate username and password for the Online and Mobile banking system. Each joint owner should register individually and will only have access to accounts which they have transaction authority on.
When you access Online Banking to conduct transactions, the information you enter may be recorded in a secure manner. By using Online/Mobile Banking, you consent to such recording.
No Signature Required
When using Online/Mobile Banking to conduct transactions, you agree that we may debit your account to complete the transactions or honor debits you have not signed.
Disclosure of Account Information to Third Parties
We will disclose information to third parties about your account or transfers you make:
- When it is necessary to complete or investigate or resolve a problem with a transfer or payment;
- In order to verify the existence and conditions of your account to a third party, such as a credit bureau;
- In order to comply with government agency or court orders, or in connection with fraud prevention or an investigation;

Mobile Banking Services
Mobile Banking for Consumers and Businesses
Many of the same features and functionality are available on Mobile banking as are available on Online Banking (see above). The mobile banking platform has a smaller screen size so the functions may require additional steps or screens to facilitate the same process. Snapcheck is performed using the camera embedded into the mobile phone. We cannot guarantee or be held liable if certain features are not available or functional due to limitations on a given mobile device.
Description of Mobile Banking Services
In general, if an image of an item is received and accepted before 6:00 p.m. Central Time during a business day on which we are open, then we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. Otherwise, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open. Funds deposited using SnapCheck will generally be made available two (2) business days from the day of deposit.
The current limit for deposits made through SnapCheck is $1000. Any funds above this limit will not be made available until two (2) business days from the day of the deposit.
New accounts will be limited during the first 90 days of account activation. During the initial 90 days members will be limited to two checks for a maximum of $200 per day.
Please refer to the SnapCheck Disclosure agreement for full details about the rules and fees for this service.
Other Terms and Conditions

- Normal account fees and service charges.
- Any Internet service provider fees.
- Purchase of computer programs such as Personal Financial Management (PFM) software.

For Mobile Banking services, our business days are Monday through Friday, excluding Credit Union holidays.
Participation by Payees
Occasionally a Payee may choose not to participate in Bill Pay, or may require additional information before accepting payments. We will work with these Payees to encourage them to accept an electronic or check payment from the credit union. If we are unsuccessful, or if we determine that the Payee cannot process payments in a timely manner, we may decline future payments to this Payee. In the unlikely event that this occurs, we will promptly send you a notice. Any obligations that you wish to pay through mobile banking with Bill Pay must be payable in U.S. dollars to a Payee located in the United States. We reserve the right to restrict categories of Payees to whom payments may be made using the service. You should not use the service to make:
- Tax payments
- Court-ordered payments
- Payments to settle securities transactions
Changes to Agreement
We may change this agreement at any time. For example, we may add, delete or amend terms or services. We will notify you of such changes by mail or electronic message. If you initiate any transfer of funds or bill payment through your mobile banking after the effective date of a change, you indicate your agreement to the change.
Transfers from Money Market Deposit Accounts
Federal regulations and the deposit agreement impose limits on the number of certain types of withdrawals and transfers you can make each month from a savings and money market deposit account. You can make no more than a total of six (6) automatic or preauthorized transfers, telephone transfers, or mobile banking transfers or payments from a savings or money market deposit account each monthly statement cycle (each month for savings accounts with a quarterly statement cycle). If you exceed these limits on more than an occasional basis, we convert your account to another type of account and your account may no longer earn interest.
Each transfer or payment through the mobile banking services from your savings or money market deposit account is counted as one of the six limited transfers you are permitted each statement period. We recommend that you not use a savings or money market deposit account as your bill payment account because of these limits on transfers. Please review the deposit agreement for your account for more information.
Contact by Credit Union of America or Affiliated Parties
No CUA or Payee employee, nor any company affiliated with CUA mobile will contact you via email or phone requesting your mobile ID or mobile pass code. If you are contacted by anyone requesting this information, please contact us immediately.
Reporting Unauthorized Transactions
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your login credentials has been lost or stolen, or if you believe that an electronic fund transfer has been made without your permission using information from your check. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit). If you tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your login credentials, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your login credentials without your permission.
If you fail to inform Credit Union of America within 2 business days about your compromised login credentials you will be held liable for any losses maintained on your account.
If you do NOT tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your login credentials, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your login credentials without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.
Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, including those made by card, code or other means, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
If you believe your login credentials has been lost or stolen, call: 316-265-3272

Disclosure of Account Information
We will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transfers you make:
- Where it is necessary for completing transfers, or
- In order to verify the existence and condition of your account for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant, or
- In order to comply with government agency or court orders, or
- If you give us your written permission.
We report your mobile banking transactions on the monthly statements for your linked accounts. A description of each transaction, including whom you paid, and the date and amount of the transaction will appear on your statement.
Limitation of Liability for Mobile Banking Transactions
Tell us at once if you believe your mobile banking pass code has been compromised or if someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission. The best way to minimize your loss is to call us immediately. The unauthorized use of your mobile banking services could cause you to lose all of your money in your accounts, plus any amount available under your overdraft protection plan.
You will have no liability for unauthorized transactions if you notify us within 60 days after the statement showing the transaction has been mailed to you (or 90 days if the transaction was from an account maintained at another financial institution). If you do not, you may not get back any of the money you lost from any unauthorized transaction that occurs after the close of the 60-day period (or 90 day period if the transaction was from an account maintained at another financial institution), if we can show that we could have stopped the transaction if you had notified us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we may extend the time periods.
When you give someone your mobile banking ID and pass code, you are authorizing that person to use your service, and you are responsible for all transactions that person performs while using your service. All transactions that person performs, even those transactions you did not intend or want performed, are authorized transactions. If you notify us that the person is no longer authorized, then only transactions that person performs after the time you notify us are considered unauthorized.
Transactions that you or someone acting with you initiates with fraudulent intent are also authorized transactions.
For your protection, sign off after every mobile banking session.
Our Liability for Failure to Complete Transactions
If we do not complete a transaction to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our Agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. For instance, we will not be liable:
- If, through no fault of ours, you don't have enough available funds in your account to make the transaction or transfer;
- If mobile banking services weren't working properly, and you knew about the malfunction when you started the transaction or transfer;
- If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevented the transaction or transfer, despite reasonable precautions we've taken;
- If there are postal delays or processing delays by the Payee.
There may be other exceptions not specifically mentioned.
In case of errors or questions about your electronic transfers contact us as soon as possible. If you think your statement or receipt is incorrect or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement or receipt, contact us no later than 60 days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.
Telephone us at 800.256.8049 or 316-265-3272
Information we will need to fulfill your request:
- Your name and account number (if any).
- Describe the error or the transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
- The dollar amount of the suspected error.
If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days.
We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will give your account provisional credit within 10 business 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. 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.
For errors involving new accounts or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to 90 days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to 20 business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.
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.
