Overdraft Protection Program (ODP)

An overdraft occurs when you do not have enough money in your account to cover a transaction – but Buckeye State Credit Union pays it anyway.

We pay overdrafts at our discretion, which means we do not guarantee that we will always authorize and pay any type of transaction. If we do not authorize and pay an overdraft, your transaction will be declined. This service is included on account unless you choose to opt-out of it.

Criteria for ODP qualification:

  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • Minimum monthly deposits of $200
  • Share (savings) account opened at least 30 days (with 30 days of no negative balance)
  • Active within past 50 days
  • Loans delinquent less than 30 days

Reg-E Program

Reg-E, an opt-in service, provides extended overdraft protection beyond our Buckeye ODP Program to include electronic purchases made with merchants. This allows for overdraft protection on your ATM/Debit Card to be available to you at merchants.

*This is not in addition to our existing ODP. It is an extension of existing ODP protection. Fees apply as per our current rate and fee schedule.

OPT-IN to Reg-E

Opt-in to Reg-E and your available balance at the merchant will include the extension to the Buckeye ODP Program. Fees apply as per our current rate and fee schedule.

OPT-OUT of Reg-E?

Opt-out and it will NOT be available at the merchant. To opt-in or opt-out, see any Buckeye State Credit Union associate.
