For me, adding this optional Overdraft Line of Credit to my primary checking account was a no brainer. I didn't realize before having it how expensive insufficient fund and returned check fees cost. Now I don't have to worry about that and can spend confidently knowing that my card won't get declined with a cart full of groceries. That has happened to me in the past.

Frequently Asked Questions 

What is an Overdraft?

An overdraft occurs when members do not have enough money in their checking account to cover a transaction.

What if I don't have an Overdraft Coverage on my checking account?

Unfortunately, you will be charged a Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) fee of $25 per overdraft transaction. For check overdrafts, you will be charged the NSF $25 fee by us, the check payment will be blocked, and you will likely receive a returned check fee from the merchant. For debit card overdrafts, for most transactions your card will be declined at the point of sale and you won’t be charged an NSF fee. However, there are some debit card transactions that will be charged the NSF fee, such as when buying gas at the pump. In this example, if you have a $10 balance and spend $20 on gas, the transaction will go through because your balance shows a positive balance, but will be charged the NSF fee by us because the transaction went through with insufficient funds.
