Overdraft Protection

Create An Overdraft Protection Plan

We all make mistakes. An overdraft protection plan can provide you with peace of mind knowing your transactions will be covered. Our overdraft protection services can help you avoid costly overdraft fees when you do not have sufficient funds in your checking account for a check, electronic debit, ATM, or debit card transaction.

We offer two types of protection options:

  • Courtesy Pay
  • Overdraft Protection Accounts

Courtesy Pay

With Courtesy Pay, we can cover your paper checks, bill payments, pre-authorized electronic transactions (ACH), and recurring debit card transactions, even if there are not enough available funds in your qualified checking account. Additionally, ATM and one-time/everyday debit card transactions may be covered if you opt-in and allow us to pay these transactions on your behalf when you do not have sufficient available funds in your checking account. You may opt-in online, call (800) 334-8788, or visit any branch location to complete the opt-in form.

There is no fee to have Courtesy Pay protection and there is no cost associated with signing up. You will be charged $27 each time we pay an overdraft on your behalf, taking your account negative.

Learn more about Courtesy Pay.

Overdraft Protection Accounts

We offer several different types of Overdraft Protection Accounts: Share Savings, Money Market, and Line of Credit.

Link your checking account to any of our Overdraft Protection Accounts to automatically transfer funds and avoid overdraft fees. Enroll in Overdraft Protection by calling (800) 334-8788, or by bringing this printer-friendly form to any of our credit union branches. It only takes a moment and will remain in effect until you inform us otherwise.

Linking your accounts is free, although there is a $4 fee charged to your savings, money market account or line of credit for each overdraft transfer.
