SUBSTITUTE CHECK POLICY
Substitute Checks and Your Rights
Important Information About Your Checking Account
What Is a Substitute Check?
To make check processing faster, federal law permits banks to replace original checks with "substitute checks." These checks are similar in size to original checks with a slightly reduced image of the front and back of the original check. The front of a substitute check states: "This is a legal copy of your check. You can use it the same way you would use the original check." You may use a substitute check as proof of payment just like the original check.
Some or all of the checks that you receive back from us may be substitute checks. This notice describes rights you have when you receive substitute checks from us. The rights in this notice do not apply to original checks or to electronic debits to your account. However, you have rights under other law with respect to those transactions.
What Are My Rights Regarding Substitute Checks?
In certain cases, federal law provides a special procedure that allows you to request a refund for losses you suffer if a substitute check is posted to your account (for example, if you think that we withdrew the wrong amount from your account or that we withdrew money from your account more than once for the same check). The losses you may attempt to recover under this procedure may include the amount that was withdrawn from your account and fees that were charged as a result of the withdrawal (for example, bounced check fees).
The amount of your refund under this procedure is limited to the amount of your loss or the amount of the substitute check, whichever is less. You also are entitled to interest on the amount of your refund if your account is an interest-bearing account. If your loss exceeds the amount of the substitute check, you may be able to recover additional amounts under other law.
If you use this procedure, you may receive up to $2,500 of your refund (plus interest if your account earns interest) within 10 business days after we received your claim and the remainder of your refund (plus interest if your account earns interest) not later than 45 calendar days after we received your claim.
We may reverse the refund (including any interest on the refund) if we later are able to demonstrate that the substitute check was correctly posted to your account.
How Do I Make a Claim for a Refund?
If you believe that you have suffered a loss relating to a substitute check that you received and that was posted to your account, please contact us at Riddell National Bank, 1 East National Avenue, Brazil, IN 47834 – 812.448.2611. You must contact us within 40 calendar days of the date that we mailed (or otherwise delivered by a means to which you agreed) the substitute check in question or the account statement showing that the substitute check was posted to your account, whichever is later. We will extend this time period if you were not able to make a timely claim because of extraordinary circumstances.
Your claim must include the following information:
- A description of why you have suffered a loss (for example, you think the amount withdrawn was incorrect)
- An estimate of the amount of your loss
- An explanation of why the substitute check you received is insufficient to confirm that you suffered a loss
- A copy of the substitute check and the following information to help us identify the substitute check:
- check number;
- name of person to whom you wrote the check;
- the amount of the check; and
- the date of the check.
UNLAWFUL INTERNET GAMBLING NOTICE
In compliance with the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (UIGEA) and implementing regulations (Regulation GG) issued by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the United States Department of Treasury, certain transactions are prohibited within your account. Our financial institution is required to notify our commercial customers of this prohibition.
"Unlawful Internet gambling" is defined in UIEGA as placing, receiving, or otherwise knowingly transmitting a bet or wager by any means which involves the use, at least in part, of the Internet where such bet or wager is unlawful under any applicable Federal or State law in the State or Tribal lands in which the bet or wager is initiated, received, or otherwise made.
Regulation GG prohibits restricted transactions in your account. "Restricted transactions" are defined in Regulation GG to be transactions in which funds are knowingly accepted by gambling businesses in connection with participation by others in unlawful Internet gambling. Restricted transactions are prohibited from being processed through any account you hold with our institution. Restricted transactions generally include, but are not limited to, those in which credit, electronic fund transfers, checks, debit card or credit card transactions, or drafts are knowingly accepted by gambling businesses in connection with the participation by others in unlawful Internet gambling. Internet gambling will generally be considered to be unlawful unless verifiable authorization is obtained by an appropriate State or Tribal authority.
We may block or reject any restricted transactions or close any account we believe is in receipt of such transactions. If this doesn't apply to your business, no action is required. Contact us for further details.

- We have standard overdraft practices that come with your account.

This notice explains our standard overdraft practices.

We do authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions:
- Checks and other transactions made using your checking account number
- Automatic bill payments
We do not authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions unless you ask us to (see below):
- ATM transactions
- Everyday debit card transactions
We pay overdrafts at our discretion, which means we do not guarantee that we will authorize and pay any type of transaction.
