Accidents happen. That’s why overdraft protection is a good thing. We make it easy to use your savings account or a standing line of credit to make overdrafts a thing of the past.
Overdraft protection can assist in covering items coming through your checking account. The Credit Union can set up your account to overdraw from a line of credit or savings account. Fees may apply. Please contact the Credit Union if you would like to know how your account is set up.
Make sure you’re covered by simply giving us a call at (800) 338-6739.
Have you ever made an honest mistake in your checkbook? Or, found yourself a “little short” before payday? Perhaps you’ve had an unusual or unforeseen expense at the wrong time. Relax, you may deserve special consideration.
Courtesy Pay safeguards you from the potential embarrassment of bouncing a check with a merchant or having your debit card declined when taking a friend to dinner. Neither the merchant nor other patrons will be aware of the status of your account. To learn more about how your account is setup, please contact us.
