Overdraft Line of Credit

Credit solutions for emergencies

Overdraft coverage for crunch time

We all hate to see those dreaded words: transaction declined. Insufficient funds can be costly and inconvenient. Conversely, getting an Overdraft Line of Credit can ease your worries. Giving you further satisfaction, knowing you’re covered with Deseret First.

You no longer have to worry about:

  • your card being denied at the register
  • bounced checks
  • failed automatic payments on your utilities or other bills

How Overdraft Credit works:


Once approved, use your checking account normally. The line of credit will cover any overspending.


Next, we watch your checking account to make sure you have a positive balance.


If you do overdraft, we transfer the amount from the LOC to your checking.


Interest accrues on the advanced allowance until you pay it off.


Finally, we calculate your payment based off of your unpaid balance at the end of the month.
