We value you as our client, and we always want you to feel safe doing business with Merrill. As a commitment to our clients' account security, we are offering this guarantee:
We will reimburse you for quantifiable monetary losses that occur in any of your Merrill qualified defined contribution plan and other employer sponsored benefit plan accounts due to unauthorized third-party activity.
To qualify for reimbursement under this fraud protection guarantee program, you must take reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized account access and comply with the following requirements:
Call us at 1.866.265.5430 as soon as possible to report suspected unauthorized activity in your account. Monitoring your account for accuracy and timely reporting of suspicious account activity are part of your responsibilities to qualify for the fraud protection guarantee program.
Merrill reserves the right to deny reimbursement under this guarantee if you fail to notify us within 120 days after the suspicious activity occurs.
If you submit a reimbursement claim, you will be required to cooperate in our fraud investigation. If we conclude that there was unauthorized activity that resulted in a loss to your Merrill account through no fault of your own, and that you took reasonable measures to protect your account against unauthorized activity as described above, we will reimburse you for quantifiable losses in the account.
Merrill will determine the type and amount of reimbursement you will receive under this guarantee.
