What you need to know about Overdrafts and Overdraft fees

An overdraft occurs when you do not have enough money in your account to cover a transaction, but we pay it anyway. Merrimack Valley Credit Union and Bridgewater Credit Union, a division of Merrimack Valley Credit Union, can cover your overdrafts in two different ways:

  1. We have standard overdraft practices that come with your account.
  2. We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as a link to another account or line of credit, which may be less expensive than our standard overdraft practices.  To learn more, ask us about these plans.
