Chase Visa EPC Card

Electronic Payment Card Program

Disclosure Statement and User Agreement



You are required to receive your Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training Temporary Disability Insurance (TDI) payments on your Chase Electronic Payment Card Account. The Chase Electronic Payment Card is a way to access your TDI benefit in one convenient Card instead of receiving a weekly check. As a recipient of TDI, your rights and obligations concerning the amount you receive and your qualifications to receive it are controlled by Rhode Island TDI laws and regulations.

This Chase Electronic Payment Card Cardholder Agreement and Electronic Funds Transfer Disclosure covers both your rights and our rights in connection with:

  • Direct deposit of your TDI benefit payments and other payments of an electronic
    transfer nature to your Chase Electronic Payment Card Account;
  • Transactions at the teller’s window in any bank that displays the Visa logo will provide you with one free transaction per deposit, $5.00 thereafter;
  • Chase Electronic Payment Card transactions performed at Automated Teller Machines ("ATMs") and Point of Sale terminals ("POS");
  • Use of the Chase Electronic Payment Card to purchase goods and services at millions of locations worldwide that accept Visa debit Cards.

    This page also describes the Chase Electronic Payment Card Program and the Chase Electronic Payment Card Account and states the terms and conditions governing the Chase Electronic Payment Card Account. By accepting a Chase Electronic Payment Card ("Card") issued by us, you also agree that the following terms and conditions will apply to the use of your Card. In each of the Agreements and disclosures in this brochure, the words "you", "your" and "yours" refers to the person authorized to use the Chase Electronic Payment Card to access government payments and the Card which is the subject of this Agreement; the words "we", "us", "our" and "ours" refer to JPMorgan Chase Bank and its subsidiaries and related corporations that provide the Chase Electronic Payment Card system. When we use the word "Card", we are referring to the Chase Electronic Payment Card that you will use to access your payments. The words "business day" mean Monday through Friday, except federal holidays. The word "agreement" refers to the Chase Electronic Payment Card Disclosure Statement and User Agreement. By selecting the Chase Electronic Payment Card, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement. Please keep a copy of it for your records.

    I. CHASE ELECTRONIC PAYMENT CARD ACCOUNT
    1. Interest Rate Information

    This account does not pay interest.
    2. Minimum Balance Requirements
    There is no minimum balance required to open and maintain a Card Account.
    3. Transaction Limitations
    Withdrawals from your Card Account may be made from an ATM or POS and from a teller inside any bank that displays the Visa logo. Withdrawals may not be made on your account unless there are sufficient, collected funds in the account. Check online at www.myaccount.chase.com, or call the Customer Service number on the back of your card.
    4. Deposits; Funds Availability
    Deposits in any amount may only be made by electronic transfer from the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training Department of Labor and Training TDI benefits program as permitted by us. Deposits by check, cash or other manner are not available for a Card Account. Any deposits made under the Card Program will be immediately available.
    5. Transactions Made Outside of the United States
    If you complete a Card transaction outside of the United States that requires a foreign currency conversion, Visa USA will convert the transaction into a US Dollar amount using its most recently published conversion procedures in effect at the time the transaction is processed. Currently, the currency conversion rate used to determine the transaction amount in U.S. dollars is a rate selected by Visa from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which rate may vary from the rate Visa itself receives, or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date, plus 3 percent. If a card transaction is completed outside of the United States, and foreign currency conversion is not required, 3 percent will be added to the transaction amount.
    6. Fees
    Fees are assessed at the time of the applicable transaction and will be automatically deducted from your account balance. Please refer to the Fee Schedule.
    7. Statements; Error Resolution
    We will send you a monthly statement showing all account activity during the statement cycle, together with any service charges imposed. If you believe that your statement contains an error or discrepancy, then you must notify us within sixty (60) days of receipt of the first statement containing the error or discrepancy. If the error involves a transaction not initiated by your Chase Electronic Payment Card, then the Electronic Funds Transfer Disclosure that follows will inform you of the steps you must take to resolve the error.

II. CHASE ELECTRONIC PAYMENT CARD; ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANSFER DISCLOSURE
1. Card Issuance and Responsibilities
You will be issued one card and you will select a Personal Identification Number ("PIN") for use with your card to access your account. For security purposes, only you will know this PIN. It is not printed on the card. The card and the PIN are not transferable and are provided for your protection and identification during card-related financial transactions at participating ATMs and POS.

Voluntary disclosure of your PIN to another individual will constitute authorization of that individual and may subject you to forfeiture of any future claims against us for withdrawn funds.
You agree that you will:
a) use the card, the PIN and any ATM or POS as instructed;
b) promptly notify us of any loss or theft of the card or involuntary disclosure of the PIN; and
c) accept liability for misuse of the card and PIN as described in 9 below.
2. Card Uses
a) At ATMs – By properly using a valid Card and PIN, you may withdraw cash from your Card Account at any ATMs bearing the network logo on your Card or other networks to which the Card Program has access, subject to applicable account limitations. You may request notification of your current account balances on your Card, however that may count as a separate transaction.
b) At Banks – By presenting the card to a teller inside any bank that displays the Visa logo.
c) At POS – By properly using a valid Card and PIN, you may purchase goods and services, subject to applicable account limitations.
d) At Visa POS – By properly using a valid Card, you may purchase goods and services at any merchant that accepts Visa debit Cards.
3. Card Use Limitations
You cannot access more funds than are available to you in your Card Account balance. You are responsible to assure that your TDI benefit has been posted to the Card Account before attempting to use the funds. The transaction you request will not be processed if you have an insufficient balance. If an ATM issues more funds than you have payments available, you may be liable for such overissuances under the laws or regulations controlling your Card Account.
There may be a network or ATM owner limitation on the dollar amount of cash withdrawals from your Card Account initiated through the use of your Card. This may limit the minimum and maximum amounts that you may withdraw through use of your Card. The network or the owner of the ATM may also charge a fee for the transaction, which is in addition of any fees charged by us. If you use an ATM outside the Chase/Allpoint system, you may be charged a per transaction fee, including balance inquiries as stated in Section II.6. of this agreement. In using your Card, you agree not to initiate a withdrawal transaction that will exceed the available funds in your Card Account. You authorize us to verify the balance of your Card Account prior to completing any transaction. If you withdraw more funds than are available in your Card Account, you authorize us to recover such funds from future deposits to your Card Account. Notices of any action taken will be detailed in your monthly statement.
4. Amendments
We will not change or amend this agreement or change the fees except with twenty-one (21) days written notice and in conjunction with the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training.
5. Change of Address
You must notify the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training of any change of address.
6. Card Use at ATMs Not Owned By Us
You may use your card at designated ATMs not owned by us. The owner of the ATM may also charge a fee for the transaction, which is in addition of any fees we charge.
7. Preauthorized Transfer Disclosure to Chase Electronic Payment Card Account
We will only make preauthorized deposits to your Chase Electronic Payment Card Account from Stateapproved sources. No other preauthorized transactions will be permitted to this account at this time.
8. Documentation of Transfers
Transaction Records – You will get a receipt each time you use an ATM or POS.
Statement – You will receive a monthly statement.
Recurring Electronic Deposits – You can call us toll-free to find out whether or not your preauthorized deposit to your account has been made. You can also determine if a deposit has been made to your account by accessing the web at www.myaccount.chase.com. You will not be charged for accessing this information via the web.
9. Liabilities
a) Our Liability for Failure to Make Transfers – If we do not complete a transfer to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our Agreement with you, we may be liable for losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for example, in the following situations:
(i) If through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.
(ii) If the ATM or POS where you are making the transfer does not have enough cash.
(iii) If the ATM or POS was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the transfer.
(iv) If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood or acts of God) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.
(v) If funds are encumbered through legal processes.
(vi) If we receive incomplete or inaccurate information on how to post funds to your account from governmental or other sources, including Automated Clearing Houses.
b) Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfer – You agree to use the Card, PIN, ATMS and POS only for the purposes outlined in this Agreement.

Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your card has been lost, stolen, or if someone has possibly learned your PIN. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your Card Account. If you tell us within two (2) business days, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your Card without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Card, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your Card without your permission if you had
told us, you could lose as much as $500. Also, if you write the PIN on the Card or otherwise compromise the PIN, your claim will not be honored. If your statement shows transactions that you did not make or authorize, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the sixty (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 for notifying us within a reasonable time.
c) Your Liability for Non-PIN Based Visa Transactions – If your Card bears the Visa logo and is used in conjunction with an unauthorized transaction that does not require entry of the PIN assigned to your Card, except as provided in Section 10 (a) and (b), your liability for such unauthorized use will not exceed:
(i.) $0 if (a) you reported the loss or theft of your card within twenty-four (24) hours of discovery of such loss or theft; and (b) you exercised reasonable care in safeguarding your Card from risk of loss or theft; and (c) you have not reported two (2) or more incidents of unauthorized use to us in the immediately preceding twelve (12)-month period, and (d) the account to which transactions initiated with your Card were posted is in good condition, or (ii.) The lesser of $50 or the amount of the money, property, labor, or services obtained by the unauthorizeduser before notification to us if all of the conditions of Paragraph 8 (a)(i), have not been met. If you believe your card has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call us toll-free or write: Customer Service Center, Post Office Box 30201, Tampa, FL 33630.

If we need more time, we may take up to ninety (90) days to investigate this matter.
