Overdraft Protection Options

Overdraft Protection Options

Work, kids, school, exercise, hobbies... whatever you're juggling, sometimes the little things can be forgotten. When balancing your checkbook is the last thing you have time for, Beacon has several options to protect you from high fees and failed transactions.

Member Plus Protection

  • Overdraft protection without overdraft fees
  • $500 to $3,000 Credit Limit*
  • Funds are available in $100 increments
  • Members may take advances in person
  • Minimum payment is 3% or $25, whichever is greater.

Overdraft Privilege Program (Standard & Extended Coverage)

Overdraft Privilege allows you to overdraw your account up to the disclosed limit for a fee in order to pay a transaction. For a list of our current Overdraft Fees, click here. Even if you have one of the overdraft protection options above, Overdraft Privilege is available as a secondary coverage if the other protection source is exhausted.
