We may require additional documentation to confirm any claims made on the Account.
You may appoint another individual as attorney-in-fact for your Account. The account owner and person executing power of attorney over your Account is known as the “Principal.” The person granted Power of Attorney for the Principal is known as the “Agent.” We may refuse to accept a power of attorney for reasonable cause, and we may require the Agent to sign an affidavit stating that the power of attorney presented to us is a true copy and that, to the best of the Agent’s knowledge, the Principal continues to be alive and competent and that the relevant powers of the Agent have not been amended or terminated. The Principal is responsible to provide us with any information if an affidavit presented to us is untrue or misleading or if the Agent exceeds the authority granted by the Principal in the power of attorney. The Agent is required to notify us in writing if the Principal dies or is declared incompetent. The power of attorney will continue in force until a) we receive written revocation from the Principal; b) we receive written notification of the Principal's death, or c) we receive written notification of the death or incapacity of the Agent. We assume no duty to monitor the actions of your attorney-in-fact to ensure that he or she acts for your benefit

Funding Your Account
Deposits to your Account may be made only in the form and manner that we permit in our sole discretion. Only electronic deposits are permitted. All deposits must be made in U.S. Dollars. At this time, you are only able to fund your Account by transferring funds from your LemFi General User Account, as defined in the LemFi Terms of Services.
You may not deposit funds in any ATM or at any of our branch locations.
Funds deposited to your Account are available as described in the General Funds Availability Policy in Section 8(E) below.
Bank is not liable for any deposits, including cash, lost in the mail, lost in transit, or not received by Bank.
We may at any time refuse to accept any deposit in our sole discretion. If an item you deposit is returned as non-payable, we will debit your Account in the amount of the non-payable item, and assess any fee we pay or loss we incur.
If funds are deposited or transferred into your Account by mistake or otherwise, Bank may correct the situation by deducting the amount of the deposit from your Account without prior notice to you. If there are not enough funds in your Account at that time, your Account could become overdrawn. See Section 8(B)(4) (No Overdrafts) and Section 8(B)(5) (Right to Set Off) below for more information about what could occur if your Account has a negative balance.
Note: If the Account is canceled, closed, or terminated for any reason, any direct deposits, ACH transfers, or cash deposits made via third party money transfer services received after the Account closure date will be rejected and returned to the originator

If your Account balance becomes negative for any reason, you must make a deposit immediately to cover the negative balance. Any deposit we receive to your Account will first be applied to any negative balance in your Account.
If your Account has a negative balance for an extended period of time and you have another account with Bank, Bank reserves the right to exercise the right to set off. See Section 8(B)(5) (Right to Set Off) below for details.
If your Account has a negative balance for thirty (30) calendar days or more it will be closed. We reserve the right to close your Account if you overdraw your Account in violation of these terms.
Right to Set Off

This means Bank has the right to set-off any liability, direct or contingent, past, present or future that you owe against any account you have with Bank. Further, you grant Bank a lien on and security interest in the funds on deposit in each of your account(s) as security for the entirety of your liabilities and obligations to Bank, now or in the future.
Account Closure, Holds, Suspensions and Restrictions
Bank reserves the right to close, suspend, freeze or restrict your Account for any reason with or without notice to you. Such reasons include, but are not limited to:

The Bank may require you and other parties to the activity to produce documents and/or other materials evidencing the validity of the activity. Funds on deposit in any Account with us are subject to hold at the Bank’s discretion until the source of such funds and/or the activity is properly verified.
Legal Processes Affecting Accounts
If legal action such as a garnishment, levy or other state or federal legal process ("Legal Process") is brought against your Account, Bank may refuse to permit (or may limit) withdrawals or transfers from your Account until the Legal Process is satisfied or dismissed. Regardless of the terms of such garnishment, levy or other state or federal process, Bank has first claim to any and all funds in your Account for your liability under this Agreement. Bank will not contest on your behalf any such Legal Process and may take action to comply with such Legal Process as Bank determines to be appropriate in the circumstances, even if any funds Bank may be required to pay out leaves insufficient funds to pay a transaction that you have authorized. Payment is made after satisfying any fees, charges or other debts owed to Bank. You agree that you are responsible for any expenses, including legal expenses and fees Bank incurs due to any Legal Process on your Account. Bank may charge these expenses to your Account. You will indemnify Bank for any losses if it does this.
Account Inactivity and Escheatment
If your Account becomes inactive (e.g., if you do not use the funds in your Account or access your Account for a certain period of time), applicable law may require Bank to report the funds in your Account as unclaimed property. If this occurs, Bank may try to locate you at the address shown in Bank's records. If Bank is unable to locate you, Bank may be required to deliver any funds in your Account to the applicable state as unclaimed property. The specified period of time to report and send funds in an inactive Account to a state varies by state, but usually ranges between two and five years.
Special Rules for New Accounts

You may also not be eligible to use certain features such as Account to Account transfer until the Account has been open for at least thirty (30) days. In addition, certain transfer limits may be lower during this time.
You may not use your Account for illegal online gambling or any other illegal transactions. Bank may refuse to process any transaction that it believes may violate the terms of this Agreement or applicable law. You acknowledge and agree that Bank has no obligation to monitor, to review or to evaluate the legality of your transactions.

We reserve the right to refuse to return any unused balance amount of less than $1.00.

Bank's Liability for Failure to Complete Transactions
If a transaction is not properly completed 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. We will not be liable, for instance:
E. General Funds Availability Policy
Information contained in this Section 8(E) is provided to assist you in understanding our Funds Availability Policy. We make funds available according to the type of deposit and when the funds are applied or credited to the Account. The funds availability policy for deposits not discussed in this section may be covered under a separate agreement, such as mobile check deposits. Some types of deposits may not be available for immediate use. When we delay the availability of funds or place a hold on a deposit made to the Account, you may not withdraw those funds, and we will not use them to pay any debits, such as ACH transfers, payments or transactions using a Card during the hold period. We have the right to refuse any deposit.
If final payment is not received on any item deposited into the Account, or if any direct deposit, or ACH transfer credit is returned to us for any reason, you agree to pay us the amount of the returned item.
If funds are received through the Automated Clearing House (ACH), then any credit given by us for such funds will be provisional until the Bank receives final settlement through a Federal Reserve Bank or has otherwise received payment as provided under Section 4A-403(a) of New York’s Uniform Commercial Code. Notice to you of such ACH credits will be provided through the Mobile App, Website, or on your periodic statement. If the Bank does not receive final settlement or payment of an ACH credit, then we are entitled to recover from you the amount of the provisional credit and the person or entity making that ACH payment will not be considered to have paid that amount to you.
The length of delay in the availability of funds varies depending on the type of deposit.
The length of the delay in the availability of funds is counted in business days from the day your deposit is applied to your Account. For purposes of these disclosures, our business days are Monday through Friday. Federal holidays are not included. Deposits received by 11:59 PM ET will be considered current-day deposits. Any deposits received after that time will be processed the following business day.

D. Fee Schedule
You agree to pay the Account fees set forth in the "Fee Schedule" below. All the fees will be withdrawn from your Account and will be assessed as long as there is a remaining balance on your Account. If at any time your remaining Account balance is less than the fees being assessed, the balance of your Account will be applied to the fees resulting in a zero balance on your Account. The remainder of the fees due will be collected upon the next deposit into your Account.
|Fee Description||Fee Amount and Frequency|
|ATM Fee||LemFi does not charge a fee for using an ATM, but ATM Operators may charge their own fee(s).|
|Card Replacement Fee||$5 per card|
When you use an ATM, you may be charged a fee by the ATM operator, and you may also be charged a fee for a balance inquiry even if you do not complete a cash withdrawal. Such fee is a third-party fee assessed by the individual ATM operator only and is not assessed by us as LemFi does not partner with any ATM operators. The ATM fee will be charged to your Account.

If you are entitled to a refund for any reason for goods or services purchased with your Account, the return and refund will be handled by the merchant.

All provisions of this Agreement shall survive the termination of this Agreement or closure of your Account by either party for actions arising in connection with this Agreement or your Account(s).
J. Governing Law
You agree that, except to the extent inconsistent with or preempted by federal law and except as otherwise stated in this Agreement, the laws of the State of New York, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern this Agreement and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and Bank (or Program Manager), regardless of your location.
THIS AGREEMENT REQUIRES ALL DISPUTES BE RESOLVED BY WAY OF BINDING ARBITRATION.
Except for disputes that qualify for small claims court, all disputes arising out of or related to this Agreement or any aspect of the relationship between you and Bank (or Program Manager), whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, will be resolved through final and binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge or jury and you agree that Bank and you are each waiving the right to trial by a jury. You agree that any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted, and you are agreeing to give up the ability to participate in a class action. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its Consumer Arbitration Rules, as amended by this Agreement.The Consumer Arbitration Rules are available online at:
The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by Bank that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination should be made by the AAA or by the arbitrator. The arbitrator's decision will follow the terms of this Agreement and will be final and binding. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of this Agreement, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against Bank for you.
If any portion of this Arbitration Provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, such a finding shall not invalidate any remaining portion of this Arbitration Provision, this Agreement, or any other agreement entered into by you with us. However, notwithstanding any language in this Arbitration Provision or this Agreement to the contrary, the Class Action Waiver is not severable from the remainder of this Arbitration Provision and, in the event that the Class Action Waiver is held to be invalid and unenforceable, and subject to any right of appeal that may exist with respect to such determination, any class action or representative proceeding shall be determined in a court of law and will not be subject to this Arbitration Provision.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, DO NOT USE THE ACCOUNT. CALL 800-851-7990 TO CLOSE THE ACCOUNT.
