Notice to Customers Providing Checks in Person or by Mail


When you provide a check as payment, you authorize us either to use information from your

check to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your account or to process the

payment as a check transaction. When we use information from your check to make an

electronic funds transfer, funds may be withdrawn from your account as soon as the same

day you make your payment.


The electronic funds transfer from your account can occur faster than a check is normally

processed. Do not present a check to the cashier unless there are sufficient funds available in

your checking account. If the electronic funds transfer cannot be completed because of

insufficient funds, we may try to make the transfer up to two more times.


By presenting your check to the cashier you authorize the conversion of your check into an

electronic funds transfer. If the electronic funds transfer cannot be processed for technical

reasons, you authorize us to process the copy of your original check.

Privacy Act –

A Privacy Act Statement required by 5 U.S.C. § 552a(e)(3) stating our

authority for soliciting and collecting the information from your check, and explaining

the purposes and routine uses which will be made of your check information, is

available from our internet site at (http://www.fms.treas.gov/otcnet/index.html) or call

toll free at (1-866-945-7920) to obtain a copy by mail. Furnishing the check

information is voluntary, but a decision not to do so may require you to make

payment by some other method.
