Overdraft Protection

NEFCU provides many different ways to help you avoid NSF (non-sufficient funds) fees. Designate a Share (savings), Power, or Line of Credit account as back up for your checking account. Free for members with more than $25,000 in loans and/or deposits; otherwise there is a $1 or $2 fee, depending on your Participation Rewards level. Call 800-400-8790 to have overdraft protection set up today.

Courtesy Pay

Another service we provide to help you avoid returned checks or other types of denied payments due to non-sufficient funds. Courtesy Pay may be used to help cover check and ACH transactions, BillPay items originated from our online banking service, as well as transactions that you make using your debit card. You do have to "Opt-In" if you want the protection of Courtesy Pay to apply to your everyday debit card transactions.

Your deposits are federally insured up to $250,000 per member by the National Credit Union Administration. Additional coverage may apply based on ownership of account - details and restrictions.
