Checking Protection Options

Overdraft Transfer Source

Upon initiating a new Checking Account, a member has the option to create an overdraft source using one of the subsequent accounts: regular savings, other savings, Money Market, or a VISA credit card account. Once configured, funds will be automatically moved from the designated account or VISA card to the member's Checking Account in cases where there are insufficient funds to cover a check or a Check Card purchase. For more details on overdraft protection choices, please contact us.  

A service fee is associated with this feature. Please refer to our current schedule of fees for applicable charges.
