Deposit verifi cation, Effective January 1, 2016

In the section of the Agreement titled “Miscellaneous,” the provision titled “Verification of transactions; Right to

reverse erroneous credits” on page 34 is deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:

Are transactions subject to verification by the Bank?

Yes. All transactions are subject to the Bank’s verification. This includes cash, items, or other funds offered for deposit for which we have provided a receipt. We do not verify all transactions. We reserve the right to reverse or otherwise adjust, at any time without prior notice to you, any debit or credit we believe we have erroneously made to your account.

Who is responsible to make sure the declared amount of funds offered for deposit is accurate?

It is your responsibility, and the Bank has no obligation, to make sure the declared amount of funds offered for deposit is accurate. If we determine a discrepancy exists between the declared and the actual amount of the funds, we are permitted to adjust (debit or credit) your account. We are also permitted to use the declared amount as the correct amount to be deposited and to not adjust a discrepancy if it is less than our standard adjustment amount. We are permitted to vary our standard adjustment amount from time to time without notice to you and to use different amounts depending on account type.

If you notify us of an error in the amount of a deposit shown on your account statement within 30 days of the date we mail or otherwise make the account statement available to you, we will review the deposit and make any adjustment we determine is appropriate, subject to any applicable fees.

If you fail to notify us during this time frame, the deposit amount on your statement will be considered correct. This means that if the actual amount is less than the amount on the statement, the difference will become your property. If the actual amount is more than the amount shown on the statement, the difference will become the Bank’s property.

Can you arrange to have us adjust all discrepancies identified during any verification without regard to our standard

adjustment amount?

Yes. If your account is an analyzed business deposit account, you may arrange for the Bank to adjust all discrepancies identifi ed during any verification without regard to our standard adjustment amount by contacting your local banker or calling the number on your statement.

Funds Availability Policy updates, Effective November 16, 2015

In the section of the Agreement titled “Funds availability policy,” the sub-section titled “General” is deleted in its

General

The Bank’s policy is to make funds from check deposits to your checking or savings account (in this policy, each an “account”) available to you on the fi rst business day after the day it receives your deposits. Incoming wire transfers, electronic direct deposits, cash deposited at a teller window and at a Wells Fargo ATM, and the first $400 of a day’s check deposits will be available on the day the Bank receives the deposits. Certain electronic credit transfers, such as those through card networks or funds transfer systems, will be available on the fi rst

business day after the day we receive the transfer. Once the funds are available, you can withdraw the funds in cash and the Bank will use the funds to pay checks and other items presented for payment and applicable fees and expenses that you have incurred.

The first $400 of a business day’s check deposits to an analyzed account are not available to you on the day the Bank receives the deposits. Check deposits to an analyzed account are available on the fi rst business day after the Bank receives your deposits.

In the section of the Agreement titled “Funds availability policy,” the first 2 paragraphs in the sub-section titled

“Longer delays may apply” are replaced with the following:

In some cases, the Bank will not make the first $400 of a business day’s check deposits available to you on the day it receives the deposits. Further, in some cases, the Bank will not make all the funds that you deposit by check available to you on the fi rst business day after the day of your deposit. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the second or third1 business day after the day of your deposit. The first $200 of your deposit, however, may be available on the fi rst business day.

Except as otherwise explained in this paragraph, if the Bank is not going to make all funds from your deposit available on the business day of deposit or the fi rst business day after the day of deposit, the Bank will notify you at the time you make your deposit. The Bank will also tell you when the funds will be available. If your deposit is not made directly to an employee, or if it decides to take this action after you have left the premises, the Bank will mail you the notice by the fi rst business day after it receives your deposit.

(8)

In the section of the Agreement titled “Funds availability policy” the sub-section “Special rules for new accounts” is

replaced with the following:

Special rules for new accounts

If you are a new customer, the following special rules will apply during the first 30 days your account is open. Incoming wire transfers, electronic direct deposits, and cash deposited at a teller window and at a Wells Fargo ATM will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Funds from your check deposits will be available on the business day after the day we receive the deposits; no funds from a

business day’s check deposits, including those through a Wells Fargo ATM, are available on the day we receive the deposits. If we delay the availability of your deposit the following special rules may apply:

• 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 and U.S. Postal Service money orders made payable to you will be available on the fi rst business day after the day of your deposit. • The excess over $5,000 and funds from all other check deposits will be available on the seventh or eighth1 business day after the day

of your deposit. The first $200 of a day’s total deposit of funds from all other check deposits, however, may be available on the fi rst or second1 business day after the day of your deposit.

We will notify you if we delay your ability to withdraw funds and we will tell you when the funds will be available.

1 We may delay availability of funds by one additional business day for certain checks deposited at a Wells Fargo location in Alaska. This right applies only if the check is drawn

on or payable at or through a paying bank not located in Alaska.
