Description of features
Aggregation of online financial accounts
You may use your Money HQ Service to consolidate, organize and present certain information from your accounts at Austin Telco Federal Credit Union and with third parties such as banks, credit unions, brokerages, credit card providers, billers, and other sources of financial information ("Information Providers") on secure web pages. For each of your registered accounts on the Service you will need to provide your User ID, password and/or personal information numbers (PINs) so that Austin Telco Federal Credit Union can retrieve your account information. Based upon your setup instructions for each account, the information can be retrieved on a daily, on-login or on-demand basis.
You may use your Money HQ to make transfers between one of your accounts at Austin Telco Federal Credit Union and one of your accounts at another financial institution.
Presentment of bills
You may use your Money HQ Service to consolidate, organize and present bill information from other service providers that offer on-line account information. Based upon Austin Telco Federal Credit Union's capability to access and aggregate online financial account information about your service provider accounts, a summary of your bill will be displayed on your Money HQ Service if the account has an amount due greater than zero and the due date is in the future or a limited days in the past.
Setup of the service
To begin using your Money HQ Service, there are some preliminary legal and informational requirements that need to be completed.
It is necessary for Austin Telco Federal Credit Union to access third party Web sites and databases containing information regarding your accounts and financial relationships to provide certain of the features included in the Money HQ Service. Austin Telco Federal Credit Union regards your privacy and security with the utmost importance, and we are absolutely committed to safeguarding any information that you share with us.
Once you are approved for the Money HQ Service we may verify the accounts that you add to the Money HQ Service for transfers from time to time. We may use one or a combination of two methods to verify account ownership.
You authorize us to validate the accounts through the use of a test transfer, in which one or more low value payments will be both deposited to and deducted from the account. The test deposit will always occur before the test deduction, and the deduction will always be of the same or lesser amount as the deposit, so that the balance in any of your accounts will never be less than the actual balance. Once the test transfer is complete we may ask you to access your accounts to tell us the amount of the test deposit or deduction or any additional information reported by your financial institution with this test transfer.
We may also verify accounts through requiring the entry of information you ordinarily use to access the account provider's Web site, or by requiring you to submit proof of ownership of the account.
