How can I get overdraft Privilege?
Overdraft Privilege is a service we add to your checking account to cover overdrafts to a set limit, subject to the eligibility criteria and types of transactions covered as explained below. With Overdraft Privilege we will generally pay your overdraft items in your Personal Checking account up to $1,250, Premier One Checking up to $1,500, Business Checking up to $2,000, Gen Next Checking account up to $300. Overdraft Privilege is not offered on Basic Checking accounts. However, whether your overdrafts will be paid is discretionary and we reserve the right not to pay. For example, we typically do not pay overdrafts if your account is not in good standing or is not being managed in a responsible manner, or you are not making regular deposits.
Eligibility – No application is required for Overdraft Privilege. Eligibility is at the Credit Union's sole discretion and Overdraft Privilege service is generally made available for active account holders 30 days after the account is opened. Overdraft Privilege may be suspended or permanently removed from the member's account at the Credit Union's discretion.
For Debit MasterCard and ATM purchases – If you have not activated the "opt-in" feature of overdraft on your ATM or Debit card, we unfortunately, will have to decline your ATM transactions and one-time debit card transactions when there are insufficient funds in your account. Just think of this service as an 'Emergency Cash Reserve'. There is no charge if you don't use it.

What should I do if I am a victim of fraud?
Email Fraud: If you believe you have received a suspicious or fraudulent email that appears to be from Tropical Financial Credit Union, do not reply or click on any of its links, contact any phone numbers or otherwise provide any personal information. Please forward it immediately to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Identity Fraud: If you know, or even think, you’ve been a victim of identity fraud, take immediate action and follow these five steps.
More specifics can be found on the FTC’s Identity Theft Site, located here:
- Report the fraudulent activity. If the activity is related to our financial institution please contact us directly. If it is related to another financial institution, your credit card company, or any other organization contact them directly.
- Contact one of the three consumer reporting companies and have a fraud alert placed on your credit report. This will help stop fraudsters from opening any additional accounts in your name. Contact only one of the following (the others are required to contact the other two):
Equifax: 1-800-525-6285; www.equifax.com; P.O. Box 740241, Atlanta, GA 30374-0241
Experian: 1-888-EXPERIAN (397-3742); www.experian.com; P.O. Box 9532, Allen, TX 7501
TransUnion: 1-800-680-7289; www.transunion.com; Fraud Victim Assistance Division, P.O. Box 6790, Fullerton, CA 92834-6790
- Close any accounts that you know - or even think – might have been tampered with or opened fraudulently. Report the transgression to a security spokesperson at the relevant company. Ask them about any additional steps – they’ll probably ask you to send relevant copies of the fraudulent activity.
You can also use the FTC Theft Affidavit ID Theft Affidavit (PDF, 56KB) as formal certification of your dispute.
- File your complaint with the FTC. Use the online complaint form; or call the FTC’s Identity Theft Hotline, toll-free: 1-877-ID-THEFT (438-4338); TTY: 1-866-653-4261; or write Identity Theft Clearinghouse, Federal Trade Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20580.
Sharing your identity theft complaint with the FTC will help law enforcement officials track down identity thieves and stop them.
