Overdraft Protection linked to the savings account you have with UCU. For a $5 fee per transfer, UCU will automatically transfer funds to your checking account from your savings account.
Our linebacker overdraft protection is a line of credit that helps stop those occasional charges that cause your checking account to overdraw. Cover your checks from insufficient funds and protect yourself from check writing errors. Loan advances are made in $100 increments and credit limits are available up to $1,000.
Overdraft Privilege allows you to overdraw your account up to the disclosed limit for a fee in order to pay a transaction. Even if you have overdraft protection, Overdraft Privilege is still available as secondary coverage if the other protection source is exhausted. Please review What Else You Should Know and Discretionary Overdraft Privilege Policy.
