The only fees associated with your share draft account are the cost of having checks printed with your name and address, fees for certifying checks, returned checks, overdraft transfers to cover checks, and stop payments. ATM fees will also be incurred after five (5) ATM withdrawals per month. Please see our fee schedule for details.
Our convenient VISA debit card is linked to your share draft account (checking) as well as your primary share (savings) account. You can use it to debit your share draft account directly at a Point-Of-Sale transaction, as well as getting cash at ATMs with absolutely no fees from us for the first five withdrawals per month. After five ATM withdrawals, there is a $0.50 per transaction fee. For your protection the credit union will allow you to withdraw funds up to a maximum of $500 per day from any ATM machine with a VISA logo on it. Be aware that ATM machines have their own restrictions and may not allow access to that much money at one time. Charges from other institutions may be incurred, so be sure to read the information on the machines before you access your account.
Academic FCU also has access to many surcharge free ATMs. Please visit www.allpointnetwork.com or www.sum-atm.com to find a convenient free ATM location near you.
