At First Command we encourage responsible financial management, but we recognize that there are times when you need some flexibility. That’s why we offer two types of overdraft protection: The Overdraft Program and Coverdraft.

An overdraft occurs you don’t have enough money in your account to cover a transaction, and we pay it anyway (fees apply). The Overdraft Program provides an Approved Overdraft Limit of $500. The Overdraft Program is not available on the Money Market Savings account.

Coverdraft automatically transfers funds directly from another First Command Bank Deposit account when there are insufficient funds in your checking account at the time of the withdrawal/transaction.

Note: We reserve the right not to pay an overdraft if your account is not in good standing, if you aren’t making regular deposits or if you have too many overdrafts. To learn more about overdraft protection, please refer to the Depository Agreement and Disclosures booklet.

While there’s no cost to set up overdraft protection, you’ll be charged an overdraft fee per item paid. You’ll have up to 30 days to pay back the amount owed by making a deposit into your account. View the Overdraft Protection Disclosure.

There is no fee for the Coverdraft transfer. You have the option to set a predetermined amount for transfers (such as $250, $100, etc.). With this option, the specified lump sum will transfer when a Coverdraft is needed, helping to reduce the number of potential transfers. If you choose not to set a predetermined amount, only the amount needed to cover the transaction will be transferred for each separate transaction.

Coverdraft transfers from a First Command Money Market Savings Account are included in the federal limit of six withdrawals/transfers per month. Withdrawals exceeding the limit will incur a fee.

eStatement users will receive a notification email detailing the transaction(s) and fee(s) for the items paid under the Overdraft program. If you’re not an eStatement user, we’ll send you a notice by mail.

  • Know your current balance and keep track of your spending.
  • Use OnCommand Account Alerts to monitor your account activity.
  • Review your account statements monthly with eStatements.
  • Schedule your bill payments in OnCommand or MobileCommand to control when funds move out of your account.
  • Take action quickly to deposit funds when needed. Funds can be easily transferred between your accounts using OnCommand and MobileCommand.
