PROTECTED CONSUMER USE: (Massachusetts only)

Chapter 167B of the Massachusetts General Laws was enacted to provide a means for financial institutions, businesses, and consumers to conduct their business relations more conveniently. Transferring funds electronically will supplement the use of checks, credit, and cash and will not replace these present methods of doing business. As a consumer, you should be aware of your rights if you choose to utilize this system.

Prohibition of compulsory use. No person may:

  • Require you to use a preauthorized electronic fund transfer as a condition of the extension of credit unless the credit is being extended in connection with an overdraft checking plan, or is being extended to maintain a specified balance in your account, or
  • Require you either to accept a transfer service or to establish an account which is accesses electronically as conditions of employment or receipt of governmental benefit, or o Require you to pay electronically for the purchase of goods or services.
  • If your account is to be credited by a preauthorized transfer you may choose the financial institution to which the transfer may be made, if the institution is technically capable of receiving such preauthorized transfer.
  • Waiver of rights. No writing or agreement signed by you can waive the rights conferred to you by Chapter 167B of the Massachusetts General Laws unless you decide to waive these rights is settlement of a dispute or action.
  • Refunds. If it is the policy of a store or retail business to give cash refunds in return for an item purchased by cash, then this policy must also cover refunds for items purchased by electronic funds transfer unless it is clearly disclosed at the time the transaction is consummated that no cash or credit refunds are given for payments made by electronic funds transfers.
  • Suspension of obligations. If a person agrees to accept payment by means of an electronic funds transfer and the system malfunctions preventing such transfer, then the consumer’s obligation is suspended until the transfer can be completed, unless that person, in writing, demands payment by other means.
  • Prohibited means of identification. Your Social Security number cannot be used as the primary identification number although it can be used a secondary aid to identify you.
