  • What is the background of adopting an Arbitration Agreement?

    Chartway Federal Credit Union’s Membership and Account Agreement was recently amended to include a binding arbitration agreement and jury trial waiver. We are adopting arbitration as the method of resolving legal disputes with members. This means that instead of filing lawsuits in the traditional court system to resolve a legal dispute, we will take our dispute to a neutral third-party arbitrator who will hear the claim, receive evidence from both Chartway Federal Credit Union and the member, and decide the resolution. The arbitration process is less formal and is usually much quicker. Under Chartway’s arbitration agreement, members are not able to file or participate in a class action lawsuit against the credit union. Each claim is arbitrated on an individual basis.

  • Can I opt out of the Arbitration Agreement?

    New members after July 12, 2022, have thirty days to opt out from the date that their account is opened with Chartway Federal Credit Union.

  • How does this affect my membership?

    This change does not impact your membership or how you use your Chartway accounts or services. If you have a legal dispute regarding any product, service or experience with Chartway Federal Credit Union covered by the arbitration agreement, we will first attempt to resolve it informally. If that isn’t possible, we will use arbitration to resolve the dispute.

  • Where can I find my membership agreement?

    The membership agreement is provided in the Members Guide to Services at account opening. It is also available here: New Account Information.

  • What is Arbitration and how does it work?

    Arbitration is the out-of-court resolution of a dispute between parties to a contract, decided by an impartial third party (the arbitrator).

    Arbitration can be an efficient means to resolve legal disputes between parties. Arbitration is designed to be less costly than filing in court, likely more convenient, and the member will have the same available remedies
