Overdraft Protection

If you have ever overdrawn your checking account, you've experienced the embarrassment, inconvenience, and expense of bounced checks. You can protect yourself and your credit record by establishing overdraft protection on your Alaska USA checking account

You can designate either a savings or money market account or a credit line loan with the same account number as your checking account. Then, if you overdraw your checking account, the overdrawn amount will be transferred from the designated account.

Record keeping is easy because you receive a notice whenever overdraft protection has been activated.
