Overdraft Protection and Courtesy Pay
Overdraft Protection Guard against the embarrassment and inconvenience of returned checks by designating your deposit accounts as funding sources if your checking account doesn’t have a sufficient balance. For additional overdraft protection, consider a Overdraft Protection Line of Credit. You decide which accounts you want to use and the order in which you want to use them. There is no cost for this service.
Courtesy Pay When you set up Courtesy Pay, we will cover your overdrafts up to a $300 maximum, plus the $25 non-sufficient funds/overdraft fee as when no other funding source is available. Courtesy Pay is not a line of credit but a discretionary courtesy for our members.
FREE Mastercard® Debit Card
Our FREE Mastercard® Debit Card lets you make purchases anywhere Mastercard® is accepted. Store and online purchases are deducted directly from your checking account.
