You authorize us, Moore West Federal Credit Union, to transfer funds (a "funds transfer") as shown on the Wire Transfer Authorization form. Our charges for the funds transfer are disclosed in our fee schedule. Other institutions involved in the funds transfer may impose additional charges.

We may fail to act or delay in acting on a transfer order without any liability because of legal constraint, your negligence, interruption of communication facilities, equipment failure, war, emergency conditions or other circumstance beyond our control. We may also fail to send or delay in sending a transfer order without any liability if sending the order would violate any guideline, rule or regulation of any governmental authority.

We are not liable for consequential, special or exemplary damages or losses of any kind.

You have no right to cancel or amend this transfer order. If you ask us to cancel or amend it, we may make a reasonable effort to act on your request. But we are not liable to you if for any reason this transfer order is not amended or canceled. You agree to reimburse us for any costs, losses or damages that we incur in connection with your request to amend or cancel the transfer order.

If we try to cancel this funds transfer, we do not have to refund your money until we determine that the beneficiary has not received the money and the money is returned to us. If we return the money, the refund may not be equal to the amount of the original payment order. For example, the amounts may be different because of a charge other institutions may impose to return the funds transfer.

We have cutoff times for processing transfer orders. Transfers received prior to 12:00 p.m. Noon (local time) will be transmitted the same day. If we receive this transfer order after the cutoff time, we may treat the transfer order as if we received it on our next business day. Funds transfer business days will include all normal business days of Moore West Federal Credit Union.

You must accurately identify beneficiaries of your transfer order. If you give us the name and account number of a beneficiary, we and other institutions may process the transfer order based on the account number alone, even though the number may identify a person other than the beneficiary named. If you give us the name and identifying number of an institution, we and other institutions may process the transfer order based on the institution's identifying number alone, even though the number may identify an institution other than the institution named. In these cases, you are still obligated to pay us the amount of the transfer order.

Fedwire is the funds transfer system of the U.S. Federal Reserve Banks. We or other institutions involved may use Fedwire to make the funds transfer. If any part of the funds transfer is carried by Fedwire, your rights and obligations regarding the funds transfer are governed by Regulation J of the U.S. Federal Reserve Board.

When a transfer order is issued by a member, the security procedure involves use of identification methods that may include: photo identification, signature identification of the original signature and/or call back procedure by Moore West Federal Credit Union.

You authorize Moore West Federal Credit Union to debit your account to pay for this funds transfer and any applicable fees. We will notify you about the funds transfer by listing it on your account statement. You must send us written notice, including a statement of relevant facts, within 14 calendar days after you receive the first account statement on which any unauthorized or erroneous debit to your account or any other discrepancy between your records and ours appears. If you fail to notify us within this 14-day period, we are not liable or obligated to compensate you for any loss of interest or interest equivalent because of an unauthorized or erroneous debit.

International wires remitted in US Dollars may take 5 - 7 days to reach destination banks. Destination banks may deduct additional fees before funds are credited to the beneficiary's account.

You authorize Moore West Federal Credit Union to use this authorization for your current and future outgoing wire transfer requests.
