How Does Overdraft Transfer Service Work?

Enrolling in Overdraft Transfer Service helps prevent your Checking account from experiencing non-sufficient funds (NSF) activity or becoming overdrawn, which could result in fees. Overdraft Transfer Service automatically moves available funds to your Checking account from up to two protecting accounts. A protecting account can be an SECU Share, Money Market Share or Checking account, or an Open-End Signature loan or Home Equity Line of Credit.2,3

Once an account is enrolled in Overdraft Transfer Service, you can also enroll in SECU’s Another Chance Alerts program.


  • Two Overdraft Fee Free Days1
  • $0.50 fee for each overdraft transfer after Fee Free Days are used
  • Up to two protecting accounts
  • Funds transferred in whole dollar increments:
    • $50 increments from Share and deposit accounts,2 and Open-End Signature loans3
    • $500 increments from Home Equity Lines of Credit3
If the standard transfer increment is not available in the protecting account but enough funds are available to cover the item, all available funds (in whole dollars) will be transferred to your Checking account.4

See our Account Rules and Regulations, which you can access from the Account Disclosures page, for more information.

1 No fee assessed the first two days of each calendar year on which an Overdraft Transfer Service fee would otherwise be incurred on an account.
2  Up to the available balance for Checking accounts and Money Market Share accounts. Share accounts must maintain a $25 minimum balance for membership. If a Share account serves as a protecting account for Overdraft Transfer Service purposes, the $25 minimum amount is not available for overdraft transfer even though this amount is included as part of the account’s Available Balance displayed online.
3  Overdraft transfers from SECU Visa Credit Card accounts (if offered by the Credit Union), Open-End Signature loans, and Home Equity Lines of Credit are considered cash advances or loan advances, as applicable, and can be made up to the amount of the available ceiling/credit limit, less any outstanding available balance. Members must be 18 years of age or older or otherwise eligible for lending services to apply.
4  Funds are transferred from the primary protecting account first. If funds from the primary protecting account are insufficient to cover any item posting to the Checking account, but there are enough funds in the secondary protecting account to cover the remaining insufficiency, all available funds are transferred from the primary protecting account first and then another transfer is made from the secondary protecting account. If your Overdraft Fee Free Days have been exhausted, your Checking account will incur a $0.50 fee for each transfer.
