What you need to know about Overdrafts and Overdraft fees
An overdraft courtesy pay occurs when you do not have enough money in your account to cover a transaction, but the credit union covers the transaction anyway. The credit union can cover overdrafts in two different ways:
- We have standard overdraft transfers that come with your account, covering the overdraft with your funds.
- We also offer an overdraft protection plan covering the overdraft and putting your share draft account in the negative.
What are the overdraft practices that come with my account?
We do authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions using overdraft transfer in either your savings or share draft account.
