Ensure you are covered if your account balance runs low with Overdraft Privilege

When funds are not available from your share (savings) account or available credit lines, we may, at our discretion, provide you an overdraft option to overdraw your checking account using the Overdraft Privilege service up to an amount determined using the following criteria:

  • Age of your account
  • Average number of deposits
  • Dollar amount of deposits
  • Deposit patterns
  • Account “Good Standing” status
  • Ongoing overdraft activity, including timely repayment
Costs: There are no fees to sign up. If you never use Overdraft Privilege, you will never be charged a fee. Each Overdraft Privilege transaction approved for payment will be assessed a $35 fee.

Overdraft Privilege eligibility: Natural person consumer accounts, grantor trust accounts and business entity accounts are automatically enrolled in Overdraft Privilege upon meeting eligibility requirements. The standard Overdraft Privilege program covers payments made by check or payments made using your checking account number (e.g., automated or electronic payments). It does not cover debit card transactions. You must affirmatively authorize us to pay everyday debit card transactions.
No application is required for the Overdraft Privilege service; eligibility is at the sole discretion of the credit union. The overdraft limit authorized for your use depends on the factors noted above and based on you managing your checking account in a responsible manner.

  • Loan obligations are current and free from delinquency.
  • There are no legal or administrative orders, levy, or bankruptcy proceedings preventing us from offering the service.
  • Minimum age requirements are met.

Important information about overdraft protection

Available Balance
We use the available account balance to authorize transactions for payment. The available account balance may be different than the current account balance. See the Accounts and Services Membership Agreement section titled Current Account Balance versus Available Account Balance for more information.
Participation and Opt-Out
You may opt-out of the payment of transactions using Overdraft Privilege at any time by contacting us. See "How to Contact Us" above.
Transaction Fee

Each Overdraft Privilege transaction approved for payment will be assessed a $35.00 overdraft fee.

You are responsible for repaying Overdraft Privilege transactions and the associated fees as soon as possible, but no later than 35 days from the date the overdraft occurred. Non-payment beyond 35 days is subject to collection proceedings.

Payment Processing
When processing transactions to your account, our policy is to pay them in the order in which they are received.
Overdraft Privilege Repayment
Overdraft Privilege is not a line of credit. As such, the Overdraft Privilege negative balance amount must be repaid within 35 days from the date of the overdraft transaction(s), including the overdraft fee(s).
Future Deposits
All deposits made to overdrawn accounts are applied to the negative balance.
Overdraft Privilege is Discretionary
The payment of overdrafts from savings, credit lines and Overdraft Privilege is discretionary, meaning we do not guarantee payment of any transaction that causes your checking account balance to exceed its available account balance.
Amount Authorized
The amount we may authorize for the payment of a transaction or transactions from Overdraft Privilege is determined by the deposit activity in your account and your timely attention to the repayment of Overdraft Privilege funds owed, including fee assessments.
Notice of Overdraft
Notification of transactions paid from Overdraft Privilege, including associated fees, is communicated only in your transaction history / periodic statement. We do not send separate notice of a paid overdraft transaction.
Authorized Transactions
Transactions authorized by an account owner are considered authorized by you and subject to overdraft protection rules, including Overdraft Privilege usage and associated fees.
Intended Use
Overdraft protection is intended for use on an occasional basis when your spending has accidentally exceeded your checking account balance.
Excessive Use

We monitor accounts for chronic or excessive use and reserve the right to suspend or discontinue the service at any time.
