National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund & Massachusetts Share Insurance Corporation (MSIC)

Member accounts in this credit union are federally insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund with supplemental coverage provided by MSIC.


Transaction Limitations

We reserve the right to, at any time, require not less than seven days notice in writing before each withdrawal from an interest-bearing account other than a time deposit, or from any other savings account as defined by Regulation D.


Rate Information

  • For this account type, the dividend period is monthly, for example, the beginning date of the first dividend period of the calendar year is January 1, and the ending date of such dividend period is January 31. All other dividend periods follow this same pattern of dates. The dividend declaration date follows the ending date of a dividend period, and for the example above is February 1.
  • Daily Balance Computation Method – Dividends are calculated by the daily balance method which applies a daily periodic rate to the balance in the account each day.
  • Accrual of Dividends – Dividends will begin to accrue on the business day you deposit cash or non-cash items (for example, checks) into your account.
  • The annual percentage yield is based on the assumption that dividends will remain in the account until maturity and that funds will remain on deposit for one year.
  • The dividend rate and annual percentage yield may change at any time, as determined by the credit union board of directors.

Overdraft Privilege

What is Overdraft Privilege?

  • A financial resource that can cover your overdraft checks.
  • SCU's convenient response to your unexpected checking needs.
  • A valuable enhancement to your banking relationship
  • Not a promise, but a privilege, for you.

We can save you the expense and embarrassment of having your checks returned. The Overdraft Privilege does just that.

As long as your account remains in good standing, the Southbridge Credit Union may elect to pay your overdraft checks, rather than returning them, unpaid, to the party you intended to pay.

You will be charged service fees for insufficient funds as appropriate. Checks paid through the Overdraft Privilege enable you to avoid the additional expense of another fee charged by the party to which the check was returned.

Click here to see SCU's Overdraft Protection Policy.
 

How Can I Get the Overdraft Privilege?

You do not have to do anything other than keep making deposits - what could be easier?

 

What Happens if I Make a Mistake?

You can use your checking account with us while you cover your overdraft amount. We want to keep you as a member and to help you repay any outstanding amount. Ask one of our friendly, professional staff about how we can help.

 

What if I don't want Overdraft Privilege?

You may opt out of this service simply by contacting your credit union at 508-765-5454.
