You are one of our best members, and we thank you for the trust you have placed in our financial institution.
When you have used our overdraft program, it has enabled us to cover your unexpected expense or help you avoid embarrassment due to an error in your recordkeeping.

These are the reasons you used this safety net – and the reasons it should remain available to you and your family.
