Benefits of Platinum Overdraft Debit Coverage
We appreciate you taking the time to complete the required form.
EECU Checking accounts come with a great feature called Platinum Overdraft Debit. This enhanced level of overdraft protection may allow certain debit card transactions to be paid, at our discretion, even if you don't have the money available in your account at that time to cover the amount of the purchase.
The benefits to you are:
- Protection - if you make an error in your checkbook or forget to make a deposit, we may approve your debit card transaction even if you don't have the funds in your account
- Peace of Mind - if you have an emergency, your debit card transaction may be covered even if you don't have enough money in your account
- Security - we may cover your unplanned debit card transactions, like a car repair or tow truck service call
Here's an example of how Platinum Overdraft Debit coverage may benefit you: Your car breaks down and you use your debit card to pay for the emergency repair. You don't have enough funds in your account to cover the transaction. Instead of declining the transaction, EECU's Platinum Overdraft Debit service may pay it anyway and you'll pay only the non-sufficient funds fee. You're back on the road in no time!
There are so many benefits to your EECU Checking Account, and Platinum Overdraft Debit coverage is one more. However, new regulatory rules will change how we offer this service.
Platinum Overdraft Debit is a discretionary service and is only available to those who qualify. The non-sufficient funds fee is $24 per transaction, maximum four per day, and is charged on everyday debit card transactions paid through Platinum Overdraft Debit; fee is reversed and refunded at the end of the business day on transactions below $5. We will transfer funds from your lower-cost overdraft options (savings or overdraft loan) before using Platinum Overdraft Debit. You will be notified of the transaction and you will be expected to return your Checking account to a positive balance immediately. Everyday debit card transactions are purchases made with your debit card on a day-to-day basis.
