The Dodd-Frank Act provided temporary unlimited deposit insurance coverage for noninterest-bearing transaction accounts (NIBTAs), including Interest on Lawyer Trust Accounts (IOLTAs) from December 31, 2010 through December 31, 2012. This unlimited coverage for NIBTAs is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2012.
NOTICE OF EXPIRATION OF THE TEMPORARY FULL FDIC INSURANCE
COVERAGE FOR NONINTEREST-BEARING TRANSACTION ACCOUNTS
By operation of Federal Law, January 1, 2013, funds deposited in a noninterest-bearing transaction account (including an Interest on Lawyers Trust Account – IOLTA) no longer will receive unlimited deposit insurance coverage by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Beginning January 1, 2013, all of a depositor’s accounts at an insured depository institution, including all noninterest-bearing transaction accounts, will be insured by the FDIC up to the standard maximum deposit insurance amount ($250,000), for each deposit ownership category. For more information about FDIC Insurance coverage of noninterest-bearing transaction accounts, visit the FDIC Website at http://www.fdic.gov/deposit/deposits/unlimited/expiration.html
The Honesdale National Bank is participating in the FDIC’s Transaction Account Guarantee Program. Under that program, through December 21, 2012, all non-interest-bearing transaction accounts are fully guaranteed by the FDIC for the entire amount in the account. Coverage under the Transaction Account Guarantee Program is in addition to and separate from the coverage available under the FDIC’s general deposit insurance rules. IOLTA accounts are included in this coverage.
NOW accounts are not included in this coverage.

FINANCIAL INSTITUTION’S LIABILITY
Liability for Failure to Make Transfers
If we do not complete a transfer to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance:
- If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer
- If the transfer would go over the credit limit on your overdraft line
- If the terminal or system was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the transfer
- If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken
- There may be other exceptions stated in our agreement with you
We will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transfers you make: – Where it is necessary for completing transfers; or
- In order to verify the existence and condition of your account for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant; or
- In order to comply with government agency or court orders or;
- If you give us written permission
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe an unauthorized electronic transfer has been made. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit). If you tell us within 2 business days, you can lose no more than $50 if someone initiated an electronic transfer without your permission. (If you believe your user ID# and/or PIN has been lost or stolen, and you tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your user ID# and/or PIN without your permission.)
If you do NOT tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your user ID# and/or PIN and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your user ID# and/or PIN without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.
Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time.
If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
Contact in event of unauthorized transfer
If you believe your user ID# and/or PIN has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call or write us at the telephone number or address listed in this disclosure.
ERROR RESOLUTION NOTICE
In case of Errors or Questions About Your Electronic Transfers, call or write us at the telephone number or address listed in this disclosure, as soon as you can, if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement or receipt. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the statement on which the problem or error appeared.

Information Security – Account Hijacking
The Honesdale National Bank will never request sensitive information from ANYONE via Email.
We want to keep you informed of some scams that are currently active on the internet that affect your privacy and your account information. According to the FDIC account hijacking is the presently the fastest growing form of identity theft. Account hijacking is the unauthorized access and misuse of existing banking account information, primarily through “Phishing” attacks. A classic Phishing attack involves a deceptive Email purporting to be from a legitimate financial institution, which typically tells a customer that there is some sort of problem with the customer’s account. The Email usually includes a hyperlink to a “spoofed,” or fake, Web site that looks exactly like the site of a legitimate financial institution with which the consumer does business. The Email then typically instructs the recipient to click on the included hyperlink, go to the financial institution Web site, and log in using the customer’s user name and password in order to “fix” the problem. In reality, the spoofed Web site is simply collecting customer user names and passwords in order to highjack accounts. Never respond to Email asking you to verify Bank Account information or click on links in an email message, even if it looks like it is from The Honesdale National Bank. The Honesdale National Bank will never request sensitive information from ANYONE via Email. If you have any question about the legitimacy of an email that looks to be from The Honesdale National Bank, please contact your local branch.

THE HONESDALE NATIONAL BANK REGULATION CC DISCLOSURE
FUNDS AVAILABILITY POLICY DISCLOSURE
PURPOSE OF THIS DISCLOSURE
The information here describes our policy of holding deposited items in a transaction account before funds are made available to you for withdrawal. This is our Funds Availability Policy. In summary our policy is to make your funds available on the first Business Day after the day of deposit. Please refer to the section DETERMINING THE AVAILABILITY OF YOUR DEPOSIT for the complete policy. For purposes of this disclosure, the terms “you/your” refer to the customer and the terms “our/we/us” refer to The Honesdale National Bank. Generally, transaction accounts are accounts which would permit an unlimited number of payments by check to third persons, and also an unlimited number of telephonic and preauthorized transfers to third persons or other accounts you may have with us.
DETERMINING THE AVAILABILITY OF YOUR DEPOSIT
The length of the delay varies depending on the type of deposit and is explained below. When we delay your ability to withdraw funds from a deposit, you may not withdraw the funds in cash, and we will not pay checks you have written on your account by using these funds. Even after we have made funds available to you and you have withdrawn the funds, you are still responsible for checks you deposit that are returned to us unpaid and for any other problems involving your deposit. When we delay your ability to withdraw funds, the length of the delay is counted in Business Days from the day of your deposit. The term “Business Day” means any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or federally declared legal holiday, and the term “Banking Day” means that part of any Business Day on which we are open to the public for carrying on substantially all of our banking functions.
If you make a deposit before 4:00 pm on a Business Day that we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit after 4:00 pm or on a day that we are not open, we will consider the deposit made on the next Business Day we are open.
Our policy is to make funds from your cash and check deposits available to you on the first Business Day after the day we receive your deposit. Electronic direct deposits will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Once the funds are available, you can withdraw them in cash and we will use them to pay checks that you have written.
HOLDS ON OTHER FUNDS FOR CHECK CASHING
If we cash a check for you that is drawn on another financial institution, we may withhold the availability of a corresponding amount of funds that are already in your account. Those funds will be available at the time funds from the check we cashed would have been available if you had deposited it and we decided to delay availability on the deposit.
HOLDS ON OTHER FUNDS IN ANOTHER ACCOUNT
If we accept for deposit a check that is drawn on another financial institution, we may make funds from the deposit available for withdrawal immediately but delay your availability to withdraw a corresponding amount of funds that you have on deposit in another account with us. The funds in the other account would then not be available for withdrawal until the time periods that are described elsewhere in this disclosure for the type of check that you deposited and we decided to delay availability on the deposit.
LONGER DELAYS MAY APPLY
In some cases, we will not make all of the funds that you deposit by check available to you according to the previously stated availability schedule. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the second Business Day after the day of your deposit. The first S200.00 of your deposits, however, may be available on the first Business Day after the day of deposit.
If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available to you according to the previously stated availability schedule, we will notify you at the time you make your deposit. We will also tell you when the funds will be available. If your deposit is not made directly to one of our employees, or if we decide to take this action after you have left the premises, we will mail you the notice by the day after we receive your deposit. If you will need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask us when the funds will be available.
Funds you deposit by check may be delayed for a longer period under the following circumstances: (a) if we believe a check you deposit will not be paid; (b) if you deposit checks totaling more than $5,000 on any one day; (c) if you redeposit a check that has been returned unpaid; (d) if you have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the last six months; or (e) if an emergency condition arises that would not enable us to make the funds available to you, such as the failure of computer or communications equipment. We will notify you if we delay your availability to withdraw funds for any of these reasons, and we will tell you when the funds will be available. They will generally be available no later than the seventh Business Day after the day of your deposit. If you will need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask us when the funds will be available.
SPECIAL RULES FOR NEW ACCOUNTS
If you are a new customer, the following special rules may apply during the first 30 days your account is opened. Funds from electronic direct deposits to your account will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Funds from deposits of cash, wire transfers, and the first $5,000 of a day’s total deposits of cashier’s, certified, teller’s, traveler’s, and federal, state and local government checks will be available on the first Business Day after the day of deposit if the deposit meets certain conditions. For example, the checks must be payable to you (and you may have to use a special deposit slip). The excess over $5,000 will be available on the ninth Business Day after the day of your deposit. If your deposit of these checks (other than a U.S. Treasury check) is not made in person to one of our employees, the first $5,000 will not be available until the first Business Day after the day of deposit.
Funds from all other check deposits will be available on the ninth Business Day after the day of your deposit.
