Overdraft Protection

We all know that mistakes can happen, and when they do be prepared with Overdraft protection. At ACCESS we have several options to help you, when those situations arise.

Line of Credit

Overdraft Line of Credit – You can apply for a pre-set (loan) amount that can be available to cover overdrafts or those unexpected expenses. There are no per item overdraft fees. Advances are made in $100 increments, and payments for your Overdraft Line of Credit are made by direct charge to your checking account. The rate you pay is based on your credit score.

Savings Transfer

Savings transfer - This automatically moves money from a savings account here at ACCESS, that you have designated, to your checking account to pay for overdrafts, as long as the funds are available. There is no fee for this service. To avoid additional fees you are limited to 6 transfers per month (from any one savings).

Courtesy Pay

Courtesy Pay - Courtesy Pay covers overdrafts from check, ACH transactions, automatic bill pay transactions, ATM transactions and debit card transactions. There is a fee of $25.00 charged for each item paid, and there is no limit to the total number of fees that can be charged in one day. Courtesy Pay coverage will occur only after savings transfer and/or overdraft line of credit is used (if already established for your account). We understand that fees and charges can become expensive, that's why we encourage you to track your balance using our free mobile banking app and text balance alerts. To request enrollment complete this form and drop it off at any ACCESS location. If eligible, your Courtesy Pay limit will be $100.

Debit Cards

VISA Debit Card

The Card that works like a check! Your ACCESS Federal Credit Union VISA Debit Card looks and works just like a VISA Credit Card except instead of giving you an advance on a line of credit, it takes the funds directly from your ACCESS Federal Credit Union checking account. Your VISA Debit Card also serves as your ACCESS Federal Credit Union ATM card. If you need cash from your checking or savings account, just insert your Debit Card into an ATM and it functions as your ATM card. This provides additional convenience as it eliminates the need to keep track of two cards. The VISA Debit Card is free! Stop in and let us issue you a ACCESS VISA Debit Card
