Overdraft Protection

Edwards Federal Credit Union understands that unexpected overdrafts occur from time to time – Overdraft Protection can help.

The choice is yours:

Overdraft Protection Line of Credit*
Subject to fees + interest

Overdraft Protection services apply to all transactions and may help prevent overdrafts by automatically transferring funds to your checking account from another account or line of credit you may have at Edwards Federal Credit Union for a fee or finance charge. Please note that overdraft lines of credit are subject to credit approval.

Accounts will be charged the standard Overdraft fee of $29.00 for handling each overdraft created by check, ACH, Point-of-Sale, ATM withdrawal, in-person withdrawal, or other electronic item that is paid and $29.00 for items returned. An overdrawn balance must be repaid within 32 days.
