Regular Checking (Share Draft) Account
A CEFCU Checking (Share Draft) account is one you will want to use to manage your family's financial affairs on a daily basis. It offers the type of convenience and savings not found at other financial institutions.
>Here is why Credit Union Checking is the BEST!
County Educators FCU offers an overdraft protection program we call "Courtesy Checking". With Courtesy Checking, the credit union will extend you the courtesy of paying your check - even if you do not currently have the funds in your checking account. This service is not a loan and you will not be charged interest on the amount used. We just ask that you clear up your negative balance within 30 days. That's all there is to it!
Courtesy Checking will save you money by not having to worry about incurring hefty merchant fees charged on returned checks.
County Educators FCU allows a courtesy of a $500.00 overdraft limit. There will be a $25.00 fee for each share draft/check/debit the credit union honors through this program. We will not return the item unless the amount of the item forces the account to exceed the $500.00 limit. In making the best effort to help you save money, we would always look to pay overdrafts by other pre-approved means first, such as transfers from your eligible savings accounts, before paying your overdraft with Courtesy Checking. If you do not wish to have Courtesy Checking, simply complete the Opt-Out form and return as instructed.
