FAQs: You Asked. We Answered.
Yes, there are three ways you can protect yourself from overdrafts.
- Link your savings and checking accounts. If you overdraft, we will automatically transfer money from your savings to your checking to cover the balance — for free. You can link your accounts by calling us at 800.845.5025.
- Apply for an Overdraft Line of Credit. The credit limit ranges from $300-$1,000 with an interest rate of 18.00% APR4. To add this protection, apply for an overdraft line of credit online or call us at 800.845.5025.
- Privilege Pay overdraft service. This service will be automatically added to all checking and money market accounts beginning June 3, 2019. Privilege Pay may authorize and pay your check, ACH, and Bill Pay transactions even though they overdraw your account. An overdraft fee from Connexus of $29.95 per occurrence may still apply with Privilege Pay. Privilege Pay does not automatically cover debit card and ATM transactions but you can add this to your coverage by calling 800.845.5025.
