Checking Accounts

If you bounce a check or your balance falls below zero, Overdraft Protection will cover it. You can cover any overages on your checking account with funds from your Share Savings account.

If you choose, you can also combine this with an Overdraft Protection Line of Credit. This line of credit, usually between $500 and $2000, is used to protect against overdrafts and subsequent fees. The funds are made available automatically when your checking account falls below zero.

Apply for an Overdraft Line of Credit online or email us to authorize Overdraft Protection from your Share Savings Account.

It’s easy to do online. Visit our check reorder site and get new checks with just a few clicks. Reorder checks online here

You can easily check the status of a transfer by logging in to our It’sMe247 online banking portal.

In addition to the six DC Credit Union ATMs that can be found at our branches, you can also visit any Citibank branch and use their ATMs for free.

You also have access to thousands of surcharge-free ATMs nationwide, but please note that DC Credit Union charges a foreign ATM fee to use these machines. If you qualify for CU*Perks we waive this fee. Learn how to qualify for CU*Perks
