Your account is considered inactive because no transaction activity has occurred within the past three years. According to the Escheatment Laws in the State of Maryland, accounts that have not had any transactions within the previous three years must be reported as dormant. Per this requirement, if we are unable to reactivate your account by October 24, 2022, the funds will be escheated to the state.

We want you to keep your account open, but we must follow Maryland laws and that includes transferring "abandoned" accounts to the state.
Unfortunately, receiving statements does not count as activity under Maryland law. Members are required to initiate contact with the credit union.
The purpose of a Certificate Account is to allow it to accumulate interest. Even if your Certificate renewed automatically, we still require that you contact us at least once a year to verify all your information is up to date. By staying in touch, your account will stay active.
If you are over the age of 70 ½, your account may be subject to abandoned property laws. Please contact us so that we can assist you.
Please have the executor of the estate contact us so we can help him or her take care of the account.
If you do not contact us or claim the property prior to the deadline, you will need to file a claim with the Maryland's unclaimed property administrator to claim your property. Learn moreOpens in New Window.
