Account Protector

CUA’s Account Protector maximizes your purchasing power while providing overdraft protection to your chequing account. It ensures access to funds when needed – without waiting or arranging for a personal loan. The Account Protector is great for personal emergencies that may not be able to make it to payday (such as a vehicle repair, or other unpredictable circumstance).

Features:

  • Funds are accessible through a chequing account and are included in the member’s available balance.
  • Chequing accounts will be overdrawn (subject to limit approval) until funds are replenished.
  • Pay interest only on amount borrowed for the number of days used (minimum $5.00 interest charge).
  • Members must qualify through a credit application and credit check.
  • Life & disability insurance available
  • The maximum credit limit under the New Canadian Account Protector Program is $500.
