BlueOx Credit Union offers Overdraft Protection as a convenience to protect you against high fees and the embarrassment associated with “bounced checks” or having your purchases declined. Overdraft Protection allows you to make purchases even if you have insufficient funds in your account.
how overdraft protection works
Rather than automatically returning your unpaid overdraft items or being declined when trying to make a purchase, we will authorize and pay reasonable overdrafts, for qualified members, as long as you maintain your account in good standing.
overdraft protection options
- Share Overdraft Protection – Link your checking account to another account (such as your Regular Savings) and have funds automatically transferred between the two accounts if an overdraft occurs.
- Overdraft Line-of-Credit –If you run out of money, the line-of-credit can pay for expenses so you don’t bounce checks or have your Debit Card denied.
- Overdraft Privilege – A service that allows the Credit Union to pay an item even if it causes your account to become overdrawn. For our standard Courtesy Pay practices we do authorize and pay overdrafts for checks and automatic or reoccurring bill payments; however, we do not automatically authorize and pay overdrafts on ATM or everyday Debit Card transactions, unless you give us consent.

Having Courtesy Pay does not guarantee that BlueOx Credit Union will pay your overdrafts. However, if we do not authorize and pay an overdraft, your transaction will be declined.
Overdraft Privilege is subject to applicable service charges when initiated by an overdraft. Overdraft Privilege is also subject to periodic account review to assess eligibility and limits are determined by an individual’s Member Rewards level. For our standard Overdraft Privilege practices, we do authorize and pay overdrafts for checks and automatic or reoccurring bill payments; however, we do not automatically authorize and pay overdrafts on ATM or everyday Debit Card transactions, unless you give us consent. Members must repay Overdraft Privilege balance within 30 days. Overdraft Privilege is a discretionary service, which means we pay overdrafts at our discretion and do not guarantee that we will always authorize and pay any type of transaction.
