Still have an OOPS! Not to worry, CPM Federal Credit Union has several options to keep you covered!

CPM has the following options available:

Standard Overdraft Privilege1
May be automatically granted to checking account holders 60 days after their account is opened. Standard Overdraft Privilege can be used to cover you when you do not have a sufficient available balance to cover your checks, individually authorized and recurring ACH transactions, internet banking and telephone transfers, POP money transfers, and online bill payments.

Overdraft Privilege Plus2
An optional additional protection may be added to your checking account at any time provided you have Standard Overdraft Privilege in place. Overdraft Privilege Plus can be used to cover all of the Standard Overdraft Privilege transactions plus your ATM and debit card transactions.

We will not charge you Overdraft Privilege fees:

  • For items that are $5.00 or less. *Please Note: This protection does not apply to items returned for non-sufficient funds (NSF). NSF items are assessed a fee for each return regardless of the item amount.
  • No more than four(4)NSF or overdraft fees will be charged per day.

Overdraft Protection Transfer
If you have other transaction accounts with CPM Federal Credit Union, you can authorize us to set up an automatic transfer to move the funds needed to cover your overdraft. Visit one of our branches or call 800.255.1513 for more information or to set this up. There is no charge for this protection.

MyLine Anytime3
You may qualify for a CPM line of credit to cover overdrafts. This service requires you to complete an application and approval is based on your credit worthiness. Visit one of our branches or call 800.255.1513 to find out if you qualify.

MyCash Loan
A MyCash loan is a short-term loan ranging from $500.00 to $2,000.00. The process is online and fast. In less than 60 seconds you can get approved and have the money credited to your CPM account. Decisions are based on your relationship with CPM and not your credit score, and the amount approved relates to your history of recurring direct deposits of pay or benefits. A MyCash loan is subject to both an application fee of $20.00 and interest charges, but it may be a better choice than having items returned or paying a fee for each item covered by overdraft privilege.
