Checking Account running low? Relax, we’ve got you covered.
When life gets busy, it's easy to lose track of how much money is in your Checking Account.
Overdraft Protection helps you avoid overdrawing your account by covering temporary balance shortfalls. Choose from three Overdraft Protection options.
For more information about your overdraft options, visit any branch or call us at (800) 634-2340.
Overdrafts are covered for a fee. New members in good standing automatically receive this benefit after 60 days.
If your Checking Account is about to be overdrawn, a transfer is made from your Savings Account to your Checking Account for a nominal fee.
Funds are deposited automatically into your Checking Account to cover an overdraft. Interest is charged for the advance.

Courtesy Pay covers overdraft checks or preauthorized withdrawals (ACH) from your Checking Account up to $500. The fee charged to cover the overdraft ($10-30) depends on the amount overdrawn, but is typically less than merchant and insufficient-fund fees. Courtesy payment amounts must be paid in full within 45 days.

Checking Line of Credit
A credit line attached to your Checking Account can be used to cover overdrafts. You repay the amount advanced from your credit line with interest, instead of paying overdraft or transfer fees. View rates.
Message and data rates may apply.
