Why TruWest

Unexpected expenses happen. Make sure you're covered.

Overdraft Privilege

We understand that unexpected expenses may occur at inconvenient times. That is why we provide our members with a discretionary Overdraft Privilege program that allows us to pay your items rather than returning them, should you overdraw your account1. This saves you from the fees normally charged by merchants for items returned to them.

  • Complete Coverage
  • Protection from merchant fees
