Non-Sufficient Funds/Overdraft Line of Credit

Provides coverage for bounced checks and helps avoid the associated fees

  • Lines between $500 - $25K (max includes all personal loans)
  • No annual, processing or servicing fees
  • Monthly fixed rate payments based on the outstanding borrowed balance, which lowers as you pay it off  

In the case of an overdraft (we know it happens, even if you're very careful) our line of credit advances the money necessary to cover your purchase or withdrawal, up to your credit limit.

You can also use the line of credit as a personal line. Write a check, transfer from e-Branch or withdraw funds at an ATM against the line of credit, whenever you need it.
