Overdraft Protection

Overdrafting your account is not only expensive in fees, but it can be embarrassing. 

When you enroll in the Overdraft Privilege Program at Copper State Credit Union, you're ensuring your check or bill payment is covered. Whether you were short on money or accidentally miscalculated your remaining balance, we understand it can happen to anyone.

Using the Overdraft Privilege Program will help minimize overdraft fees (often called Non-Sufficient Funds or NSF fees) and keep your money moving where it needs to go.

2We will round up your debit card purchases (signature and PIN) to the nearest dollar and transfer the difference from your Lopes Checking to your Primary Savings account once each day in a single transfer (Round-Up Savings) we may cancel or modify the Round-Up Savings feature at any time without prior notice. We will aggregate the rounded up amount accumulated each day and post to your Lopes checking account at the end of the business day. A single transfer will be made to the primary member's Primary Savings account at the end of the business day. If on a business day you do not have sufficient funds in your checking account, or if any transaction has overdrawn your checking account, we will not round up purchases posted on that business day and we will cancel the Round-Up Savings transfer for that day. If your debit card purchase is subsequently canceled or reversed, the corresponding Round-Up Savings transfer will remain in the savings account. Round-Up Savings is only available on the debit card linked to your Lopes checking account. You understand this feature will cause all non-even debit card transactions (signature and PIN) made by you or a joint owner of your Lopes checking account to round up to the nearest dollar and transfer the difference from your Lopes checking account to your Primary Savings account. Should you have questions regarding or choose to cancel the Round-Up Savings feature, please notify us at any time.
