What you need to know about Overdrafts and Overdraft Fees:

An overdraft occurs when you do not have enough money in your account to cover a transaction, but we pay it anyway.  We can cover your overdrafts in two different ways:

1. We have standard overdraft practices that come with your account.

2. We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as link to another account or a line of credit, which may be less costly than our standard overdraft practices.  To learn more about these other options, visit any branch.

This notice explains our standard overdraft practices.

What are the standard overdraft practices that come with my account?

We do authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions:

Checks and other transactions made using your checking account number
Automatic bill payments

We will not authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions without your consent.

ATM transactions
Everyday debit card transactions

We pay overdrafts at our discretion, which means we do not guarantee that we will always authorize and pay any type of transaction.

If we do not authorize and pay an overdraft, your transaction will be declined.

What fees will I be charged if GPO Federal Credit Union pays my overdraft?

Under our standard overdraft practices:

We will charge you a fee of  $25.00 each time we pay an overdraft
We will not charge you a fee if your account is overdrawn less than $10.00 on any given day
There is no limit per day on the total fees we can charge you for overdrawing your account
