Free Overdraft Protection
All members are eligible for our free overdraft protection plan. When you open your checking account we link your primary savings account to your checking account to automatically cover overdrafts when funds are available.
Courtesy Pay is a fee-based overdraft protection service that allows us, at our discretion, to overdraft your account and pay items or transactions generally up to a maximum of $500 that may normally be returned or denied. You must opt in to this service. Get more details here.
