Lakeside Employees Credit Union
DORMANT ACCOUNTS AND UNIFORM DISPOSITION OF UNCLAIMED PROPERTY POLICY
It is the position of Lakeside Employees Credit Union to develop the member relationship so the issues of dormancy and unclaimed property are exceptions to the norm. However, when the credit union has dormant accounts and unclaimed property accounts, the Board of Directors has approved the following policy.
We consider an account inactive if, for more than 12 months:
- there has been no debit or credit by the member;
- we receive no communication from the member, and;
- the automatic crediting of dividends or interest is the only documented activity.
Inactive accounts are reported on the credit union’s Dormancy Report which is generated monthly.
It is the policy of the credit union to monitor dormant and inactive accounts. The system generated Dormancy Report provides an up-to-the date list of dormant and inactive accounts and is reviewed monthly by a designated employee.
Once an account reaches 48 months of dormancy, a quarterly dormant account fee is assessed on the account. The dormant account fee may be found on the credit union’s fee schedule.
ABANDONED ACCOUNTS AND PROPERTY
At 60 months dormancy, the account/property is “presumed abandoned” and considered unclaimed property.
As required by the State of Tennessee Uniform Disposition of Unclaimed Personal Property, the credit union perform due diligence on the account by attempting to contact the member, following State guidelines, prior to submitting funds to the State Treasurer.
Lakeside Employees Credit Union shall follow State guidelines where the following are deemed abandoned:
- Checking accounts
- Savings accounts
- Vendor/Business expense checks
- Gift cards
- Cashier/teller checks
- Travelers checks
Lakeside Employees Credit Union shall submit their report of abandoned property, as defined by State statute, by May 1st of each year.
Lakeside Employees Credit Union acknowledges they may be subject to fines and penalties for failure to perform reporting duties on abandoned accounts and property. It is the intent of the credit union to comply with State statutes on abandoned accounts and property.
Lakeside Employees Credit Union shall maintain adequate record retention as prescribed by the State of Tennessee for a period of 10 years following filing.
See Appendix A for State of Tennessee Dormancy Periods.

Saving with Mandy and Randy
Lakeside Employees CU is sponsoring a 31 page booklet for all Second Graders in Humphreys County. Saving with Mandy and Randy was designed as a supplement that easily integrates into the core curriculum that primary teachers cover. It addresses students' competency in mathematics, economics, civics, and language arts. With this curriculum program, second grade students use the workbook provided to learn vocabulary words that are related to saving. The workbook also offers practice activities for students including coin identification, counting, adding and subtracting cents and dollars, the difference between wants and needs, the importance of saving including using saving accounts and completing a deposit ticket for a saving account. By sponsoring the program, we are reaching our children at impressionable ages. If we can help them learn good money habits right from the start and raise their level of financial responsibility, it will pay big dividends for them and the community alike.

It might be the result of a stolen purse, stolen mail, Documents taken from trash, a data breach just like the one that happen at Target, computer virus, or telephone scam. For a small fee of $1.95 everybody in your household could be covered, that’s the cost of a family pizza over a year’s time.

Protect your checks from fraud!
At Lakeside Employees Credit Union we take every precaution to protect your account and your checks from fraud. Your checks are printed on paper with embedded security features to protect them against alteration and counterfeiting, and precautions are taken in the handling and delivery of your checks.
You can make a difference. Take action to prevent criminals from getting their hands on your checks and to safeguard your check’s integrity:
- Make the post office box your choice for outgoing mail, rather than your home mailbox.
- Treat your deposit slip as if it were a check. Remember, your account number is printed on deposit slips.
- Check your statements carefully against your check register. Duplicate checks may prove helpful by providing you with a record of every check you write.
- Avoid writing checks with pencil or erasable ink.
- Print, don’t sign, your name when writing your return address on envelopes. A signature on the envelope can be copied and forged.
- Report lost or stolen checks and lost or stolen debit cards immediately.
- Don’t give your account number over the phone to anyone you don’t know.
- Don’t include your driver’s license number or Social Security number on your checks.
- Don’t write your credit card number on your check.
- Don’t leave large, blank spaces in the check box or the amount line. Start the written dollar amounts as far to the left as possible. Draw a line between the cents value and the right side of the dollar line.
