Protecting You From Needless Fees
At EFCU, we program our systems to pay as many checks as possible (smallest amount to largest amount) to help prevent our members from incurring fees. Many companies now convert your check into an electronic ACH debit. We also process ACH debits from lowest to highest, however, check and ACH debit processing are independent of one another. For point-of-sale and ATM transactions we pay the items when they are received.
You and your family members can take additional steps to protect against overdrafts by signing up for our overdraft protection transfers with no fee from savings or a Line-of-Credit Signature Loan or a combination of both. To request an overdraft protection authorization form, contact Member Services at ext. 1402.
