Be sure to protect your checking account from accidental overdraft, this will protect you from the expense of accidentally overdrawing your account.
This costs $2.00 each time and may not exceed a combined total of six telephone, and remote electronic access device initiated transfer and automated over draft transfers from the same share account in the same month (Per Regulation D).
This protection is a pre-approved loan and is free to apply for and costs nothing until you use it. When you do accidentally overdraw your account, the amount is covered by your loan. You then pay interest daily on the amount that you borrowed. If well-managed, a line-of-credit can be even less expensive than the fee to overdraft from your share account.

We employ sophisticated security to protect your card against fraudulent activity. To assist us in protecting your account, please give us a call if you’re are planning a trip outside of your local area, particularly prior to international travel, including Canada.
