Important Changes are Coming to your Account

by admin

Effective July 1, 2010, for new accounts and prior to August 15, 2010, for existing accounts, federal regulations require members who are eligible for Overdraft Services to opt-in to the program in order to be covered even if they have been covered in the past.

What does Overdraft Services cover?
Overdraft Services covers your everyday debit card transactions and ATM withdrawals even if you have insufficient funds in your account. Overdraft Services allows you to complete your transaction and purchase items that you need such as groceries or gas when you may have insufficient funds in your account. Overdraft Services is available when you need it the most when emergency situations arise and you do not have sufficient money in your account.

How much does Overdraft Services cost?
If you overdraw your account through an everyday debit card transaction or ATM withdrawal, Financial Center will charge you a $33 fee to authorize the transaction. This fee will be assessed each time you use your debit card or make a withdrawal from an ATM until you have sufficient funds in your account to cover the transaction. We only charge a fee when you utilize Overdraft Services. It is free to opt-in for this service, and the service is free even if you never use it.

Please tell us if you want to keep this convenient coverage on your account for everyday debit card transactions and ATM withdrawals. If you do not opt-in to Overdraft Services and there are insufficient funds to cover a transaction when you need it, Financial Center will not authorize the transaction after August 15, 2010.

If you choose to opt-in to Overdraft Services, these transactions will continue to be covered.

If you have further questions, contact your Indianapolis credit union at 317.916.7700 or 800.473.2328 or visit any Center location.
