members to manage their finances responsibly; however, we realize
that there may be times when you make a mistake, have unplanned
expenses or run short on cash – all leaving you with a negative
balance in your checking account to cover expenses. Returned checks
and denied electronic transactions can be inconvenient. They can
also be costly and result in possible damage to your credit history.

privilege service that will pay overdrafts up to an a $500.00
overdraft limit– all for a $25 fee for each item we pay against an

automatic bill payments. For overdraft protection on your ATM and
