655.84 Limitations; statements as correct.--
(1) Unless written objection thereto has been theretofore delivered by the depositor to the institution, a statement of account rendered by any institution in this state to a depositor, with a description of the amount and type (such as deposit, withdrawal, debit, credit, or any similar designation) of entries to such account, which description may be on accompanying documents or on the statement itself, shall, after the expiration of 2 years from the date rendered, be conclusively presumed to be correct; and the depositor is thereafter barred from questioning same.
(2) In the absence of a written contract between an institution and a depositor providing otherwise, the statement of account is deemed to have been rendered to the depositor within the meaning of this section when prepared and lodged by the institution at its statement window or other customary place for delivery to the depositor. Any such statement of account which is not demanded by the depositor within 3 years may be destroyed by the institution without accountability or liability therefor to anyone.
(3) This section does not relieve a depositor from any duty or obligation imposed by law or by contract heretofore or hereafter made to examine such statement of account and to report any disputed debits, credits, errors, or irregularities within a shorter period of time than mentioned in this section, or from the legal consequences of the depositor's failure to perform any such duty or obligation.
