In Case of Errors or Questions:

Call us at (815) 297-0900 or write to us at State Bank, 1718 S Dirck Dr. Freeport, IL 61032 as soon as you can if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transaction listed on the statement or receipt. We must hear from you no later than (60) days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.

  • Tell us your name and account number
  • Describe the error or the transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information
  • Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error
  • Confirmation or Receipt number

For bill payment errors tell us:

  • Checking account used to pay the bill
  • Payee name
  • Date
  • Confirmation or Receipt number
  • Payment amount
  • Payee account number

If you tell us verbally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days.

We will determine whether an error has occurred within 10 business days (20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (90 days if the transfer involved a new account, a point-of-sale transaction or a foreign-initiated transfer) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days (20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) for the amount you think is in error so that you will have use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your account. An account is considered a new account for 30 days after the first deposit is made if you are a new customer.

We will tell you the results of our investigation within three (3) business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
