- Overdraft protection plans, such as a link to a savings account, or an overdraft line of credit. To learn more, ask us about these plans.
This notice explains standard overdraft protection.
What is covered by Standard Overdraft Protection?
We authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions:
- Checks and other transactions made using a checking account number
- Automatic bill payments
What is not covered by Standard Overdraft Protection?
Unless opted-in, the following types of transactions are not authorized and paid:

- Non-recurring debit card transactions
Overdrafts are paid at the discretion of the credit union, which means we do not guarantee to always authorize and pay any type of transaction.
If we do not authorize and pay an overdraft, the transaction will be declined.
