Electronic Transfers

In Case of Errors or Questions

In case of errors or questions about electronic funds transfers from your share (savings) and share draft (checking) accounts or if you need more information about a transfer on the statement or receipt, telephone us at the following number or send us a written notice to the following address as soon as you can. We must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after we sent the first statement on which the problem appears. Call us at: (505) 292-6343 or (800) 228-4031; or write to: Sandia Area Federal Credit Union, P.O. Box 18044, Albuquerque, NM 87185-0044; or fax to: (505) 256-6183; or email us at: member.services@sandia.org.

  • Tell us your name and account number.
  • Describe the electronic transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe the Credit Union has made an error or why you need more information.
  • Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.

If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days.

We will determine whether an error has occurred within ten (10)* business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45)** days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within ten (10)* business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) business days, we may not credit your account.

We will tell you the results within three (3) business days of completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

* If you give notice of an error within thirty (30) days after you make the first deposit to your account, we will have twenty (20) business days instead of ten (10) business days.

** If you give notice of an error within thirty (30) days after you make the first deposit to your account, notice of an error involving a point of sale transaction, or notice of an error involving a transaction initiated outside the U.S. its possessions and territories, we will have ninety (90) days instead of forty-five (45) days to investigate.

NOTE: If the error you assert is an unauthorized Mastercard transaction, other than a cash disbursement at an ATM, we will credit your account within five (5) business days unless we determine that the circumstances or your account history warrant a delay, in which case you will receive credit within ten (10) business days.

If a dispute is not resolved to your satisfaction, you may request a review by the Supervisory Committee. Supply supporting details to: Sandia Area Federal Credit Union, Supervisory Committee, P.O. Box 18061, Albuquerque, NM 87185-8061.
