The amount RCU will cover with Overdraft Pay Advantage varies and is based on account standing and history. Typically, RCU will cover up to at least $100 for an Overdraft Pay Advantage transaction, but this is not guaranteed. If your account is not in good standing or you have not made regular deposits into your account, we may not be able to extend Overdraft Pay Advantage services to pay your transaction. RCU will consistently allow your account to go in the negative up to $5.00 without a fee. The maximum amount RCU will cover is $1,500 for personal accounts and $2,000 for business accounts.

Overdraft Pay Advantage can be used to pay your checks, automatic bill payments (such as Automatic Clearing House or recurring debit card transactions), and your everyday debit card transactions. A non-sufficient funds fee is charged. After a transaction is paid, you’ll be asked to make a deposit to cover the negative balance in your account immediately, and no later than within 20 days.
