5. Important Information If you use Telephone Transfers and Overdrafts

Due to federal regulation we limit the total number of overdrafts and/or telephone transfers from each Prime or special purpose savings account to SIX PER MONTH. In order to reduce the number of overdrafts, all overdrafts from a savings account will be in $100 increments or balance in the account, whichever is less. Telephone transfers may be for $50 or more or balance in the account, whichever is less.

After the sixth such transfer in one month, all checks for which there are insufficient funds in the account will be returned unpaid. You may guard against insufficient funds in you account if you have your Personal Line of Credit (PLOC) as an overdraft source. Your PLOC must have credit available to provide overdraft protection. The total number of overdrafts and/or telephone transfers from your Personal Line of Credit are not limited and will be in $1.00 increments.

We strongly urge you to keep sufficient funds in your checking account to cover the checks written. This can be done by making deposits to this account at the credit union or any credit union owned ATM. Payroll deductions can also be made directly to your checking account. If your employer offers this service, you can arrange for payroll deposits by contacting the credit union.

You may transfer funds in person or by written request among savings accounts or to your checking account with no limit as to amount or frequency. You may only make transfers between accounts by written request or in person.
