Overdraft Protection

Avoid the embarrassment and cost of bounced checks. If your Checking Account balance falls too low to cover a withdrawal, a debit card transaction, or a check, we will automatically transfer funds from your Savings Account to make the payment. You have three free transactions with Overdraft Protection, and the credit union will automatically make the transfer provided the funds are available in the Savings Account.

COURTESY OVERDRAFT PRIVILEGE
We offer a discretionary Overdraft Privilege program available to our valued members. If an overdraft occurs on your Checking Account, we will consider paying the check, ACH transactions and recurring Debit Card purchases up to the Member Overdraft Privilege limit of $400 and charge you the same fee ($30.00) that we would charge to return it to the merchant. This program saves you the additional merchant fees and hassles of managing a returned check. You will be sent a notice of non-sufficient funds and will be required to bring your account to a positive balance within 30 days. We encourage all of our members to manage their finances responsibly, but if you need it, your credit union is here with Courtesy Overdraft Privilege. 

ATM/DEBIT CARD COURTESY OVERDRAFT PRIVILEGE
In order to enjoy the same overdraft coverage when you use the ATM and one-time Debit card transactions you must opt-in for this valuable service.

By choosing to opt-in, you can have comfort in knowing that you could have a safety net to protect you in case of an error in your checkbook or temporary cash shortage. By opting in, we may continue to approve and pay your ATM withdrawals and everyday debit card purchases up to your overdraft limit of $400.00. This could save you the embarrassment of having your debit card declined at the grocery store, restaurant, etc. We will charge our standard Non Sufficient Fund (NSF) fee of $30, but your purchase or cash withdrawal will be approved. 

You have several options if you would like to opt into this service.

If you have questions please look at our Frequently Ask Questions or call us, we are here to serve you.
