What You Need To Know about Overdrafts and Overdraft Fees
An overdraft occurs when you do not have enough money in your account to cover a transaction, but we pay it anyway. Please
refer to the Membership and Account Agreement (Agreement) for a more thorough explanation of factors that determine when
an overdraft occurs and when you may incur a fee for overdrawing your account. The terms of the Agreement are incorporated
herein, and both this document and the Agreement are meant to be interpreted together. We can cover your overdrafts in two
- We have standard overdraft practices that come with your account.
- We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as a link to another account of yours, which may be less expensive than
our standard overdraft practices. To learn more, ask us about these plans.
This notice explains our standard overdraft practices.
What are the standard overdraft practices that come with my account?
We do authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions:
- Share drafts/checks, and other transactions made using your checking account
- Automatic bill payments
- ACH transactions
We do not authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions unless you ask us to (see below):
- ATM transactions
- One-time, everyday debit card transactions
We pay overdrafts at our discretion, which means we do not guarantee that we will always authorize and pay any type of transaction.
If we do not authorize and pay an overdraft, your transaction will be declined.
What fees will I be charged if the Credit Union pays my overdraft?
Under our standard overdraft practices:
- We will charge you a NSF fee each time we pay an overdraft. For our current fee, please check our website. Click on Manage, Resources, Fee Schedule.
- There is no limit on the total fees we can charge you for overdrawing your account.
What if I want the Credit Union to authorize and pay overdrafts on my ATM and one-time debit card transactions?

If there are multiple owners on your account, any account owner can act on behalf of all account owners. Only one (1) account
owner signature is needed to add or decline/remove the overdraft coverage.
