Checking account required. Loan limits from $500 to $1,000 on approved credit. Current Advance Line APR is 17%. APR = Annual Percentage Rate. Interest charge examples based on one month.

Share/Loan Transfers

  • All accounts are automatically set up to transfer from the Essential Share Savings to cover an overdraft; this happens up to 6 times per month at no charge.
  • Additionally, you can request to set up this type of transfer from other sub-accounts you have (like a Secondary Share or Money Market) or lines of credit (like your Visa or Advance Line).

Call or visit a branch to set up your transfer preferences today.

Member Privilege

While the above options help you to avoid overdrawing, sometimes it just happens. Whether an emergency expense or human error, returned checks and declined cards can be inconvenient, embarrassing and costly. While we don’t encourage overdrafts, we want to do what we can to help you keep your accounts in good standing and save you from additional merchant fees and possible damage to your credit. We provide Member Privilege, an opt-in courtesy overdraft service.

  • Pays checks and debits that would overdraw a checking account up to the account’s Member Privilege limit (maximum $500)
  • $29 per-item fee
  • Does not require credit approval
  • Sign up and choose your preferences when you open your checking account

For more information, please see our Truth in Savings Agreement Disclosure (link below). To ensure your account is covered, visit your branch or call us at 775.333.4228.
