How does it work?

It’s easy. Whenever you overdraw your checking account, we’ll cover your checks, ACH payments, and even Debit Card and ATM transactions. You’ve just got to Opt In and let us know that’s what you want.

The benefits?

  • Avoid high fees from merchants for returned checks
  • Avoid embarrassing credit card declines
  • Have peace of mind and flexibility

Each time you use Overdraft Privilege, a low $35 fee will be incurred for each paid overdraft item.

Overdraft Lines of Credit

Peace of mind is a beautiful thing. GE Credit Union can give you yours with an Overdraft Line of Credit.

Overdraft Lines of Credit are funds that will automatically cover whatever you overdraw from your checking account. And, the interest you pay is typically less than an Overdraft Privilege fee.

  • Easy, online application
  • Flexible borrowing
  • Instant approvals
  • Pay back only what you borrow—not the approved amount
  • Conveniently access your Line of Credit through Online Banker, checks, or at the ATMs.
