Overdraft Privilege Service

Rather than automatically returning unpaid any insufficient funds items that you may have, we will consider, without obligation on our part, payment of your reasonable overdrafts. You can benefit by this by avoiding high charges from merchants while giving you more flexibility in managing your funds. This is not a line of credit.


Deposit to Deposit Overdraft

Simply set up your accounts to have funds transferred from one account to another within our bank and avoid high overdraft fees.


Overdraft Line of Credit

  • Minimum line of credit is $500
  • Maximum line of credit is $1,500
  • Overdraft summary included in your monthly checking account statement
  • Minimum monthly payment based on your outstanding balance and current interest rate
  • Choose to have minimum payment automatically deducted from your checking account or make your own payment each month
