Overdraft Privilege Opt-In
Overdraft Privilege (ODP) coverage is a benefit for qualifying checking accounts* that allows SCCU to authorize check, ATM, or everyday debit card transactions when the transaction amount exceeds your available balance.
While qualified accounts receive this coverage automatically for certain types of transactions, new federal banking regulations that took effect in August 2010 require members to opt-in to receive Overdraft Privilege for ATM and debit card purchases.
If you'd like to opt-in to Overdraft Privilege coverage for ATM and one-time debit card transactions, you can do so using any of the following options. Please be sure to read the disclosures that are provided on the form:
