Extending a Little Kindness

Overdrafts happen. Charging more of what you already don’t have doesn’t help anyone. That’s why our Overdraft Kindness eliminates fees to help smooth the path when finances get rocky. In line with our core value of financial wellness, we absorb the burden of operating fees typically passed on to members when an account goes negative, while offering an opportunity to avoid a one-time fee if an account is brought back positive by the end of the day.

*No Overdraft Fee if, as of our day-end processing, the day’s withdrawal(s) don’t overdraw (or further overdraw) the current balance by more than $20.

No Overdraft Fee if deposit(s) or transfer(s) are made by 6:30 pm on the same day of the overdraft(s) to bring the current balance to at least $20 or less overdrawn.

"Awesome people who work here. Never had a better experience. So glad I switched to a credit union. The tellers actually get to know you and who you are, unlike big banks that just see you as a number and not a human being. Thank you Columbia CU."
