On December 23, 2015, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) announced a settlement with the Bank involving certain prepaid card programs issued by the Bank.
The settlement gives cardholders who were discouraged from filing transaction dispute claims between November 16, 2012 and December 23, 2015 (“Error Resolution Period”) a new opportunity to file claims. To help cardholders identify transactions and determine their prepaid card number, the Bank will provide at no cost, upon the cardholder’s request, a transaction summary for the Error Resolution Period that contains this important information. See below for details.
Who is included?
Current and former cardholders in the identified prepaid card programs during the Error Resolution Period are included. Even if the Card Account is now closed or inactive, cardholders who decided not to file transaction dispute claims because of an added or burdensome requirement now have the right to file those claims.
