Overdraft Protection

Everyone makes mistakes. You shouldn't have to pay big bucks for yours.

When your checking account balance dips too low, we think you should be able to easily transfer funds you have in other accounts to keep it safe from overdraft. That's why we offer overdraft protection for your checking account using any one of the following LGFCU accounts:

How it works

When you have overdraft protection, a transfer will be made from one of these kinds of accounts into your checking account to keep it safe from overdraft fees, up to the entire available balance or amount of credit. Funds may be transferred in increments of $50 ($500 if using a Home Equity Line of Credit). and there's a low 50-cent fee for each transfer. 

We can help

More than six uses of this service per month will be charged a fee equal to the current Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) fee. Repeated excess transfers from your overdraft protection account may cause the loss of overdraft privileges. Overdraft transfers from Share or Money Market accounts count as Regulation D covered transfers, which are limited to six per account, per month.

If you're having trouble keeping a positive balance or enough funds to pay for the things you need, make an appointment for a free session with one of our Financial Advisors to get on the right track.
