Opt-in for Overdraft Privilege

Synergy FCU will not pay your ATM and debit card transactions that would overdraw your account unless you opt-in, giving Synergy FCU permission to make payment on those transactions. Many members prefer having this service to avoid the embarrassment of having their debit card purchase declined at the store checkout line or at a restaurant when paying the bill. Your action is required in order for the Overdraft Privilege to be a service on your Debit or ATM card.  Click here to learn more about Overdraft Privilege.
