Overdraft Protection

Life happens, we understand. Avoid overdrafts by having funds automatically transferred into your checking account from another account you have with Mutual Federal. For only $7 per transfer, you can dodge the embarrassment of "non-sufficient funds".

Overdraft Privilege

For additional protection, Overdraft Privilege authorizes you to overdraw your checking account up to the disclosed limit in order to cover your transaction for just $30 per item. If you already have Overdraft Protection, Overdraft Privilege can serve as a secondary coverage if needed. 

Standard coverage includes checks, ACH-automatic debits, recurring debit card payments, online Bill Pay items, internet banking transfers, telephone banking, and teller window transactions. 

Extended coverage includes all standard transactions PLUS ATM withdrawals and everyday debit card transactions with your consent.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Mutual Federal's routing number?

The routing number for Mutual Federal is 242372745. 

What do I need to open an account?

When opening an account, you will be asked to provide the New Accounts Representative with two forms of identification. One must be a photo ID, preferably with your current address. Should the address on your photo ID not match your current address, two pieces of mail with your current address will be requested. Bills and a copy of your lease are both acceptable. 

You will also need to provide basic information such as your birth date, Social Security number, phone number, and other personal information. 

All accounts with Mutual Federal require an initial deposit to open. You may transfer money from an internal account, or fund your new account with a cash or check. 

If you're opening a joint account, identification details for all owners will be required. 

All applicants will be verified through ChexSystems, a nationwide specialty consumer reporting agency under the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

I don't recognize a charge on my account.

If you have unauthorized charges on your account, it is important to act quickly to protect yourself and stop any further charges. 

Contact Us. Mutual Federal can find out more about the transaction, close your debit card, freeze your account, or take other necessary steps to protect you and your account.

Contact the Vendor. Unauthorized charges should be disputed with the vendor in question. If the charge has already been posted to your account, it may take time to get the money credited back to your account.

File a Fraud or Police Report. Depending on the severity of the situation, you may need to file a fraud report with the local police department. A report may also be necessary if the thief has attempted identity theft. Be sure to keep a copy of your police report. 

Switch Automatic Deposits and Payments. If you had to close your account or bank card due to unauthorized charges, you will need to switch everything that was direct deposited or automatically drafted from the compromised account or card. 

Monitor Your Account and Credit. Continue to monitor your new account/card closely. Consider freezing your credit report so that no one can get access to your credit file without your consent. 

My debit card is lost/stolen. What do I do now?

If your Mastercard® debit card is registered with SecurLOCK™ Equip on your mobile banking app, you can turn your card off or on with a single touch. There's no more worrying about what is happening to your card if you misplace it or ordering a new card just to find it in your coat pocket! Simply turn your debit card off until it is located. 

To report a lost or stolen Mastercard debit card contact:

Mutual Federal Customer Service Department
M-F, 8am - 5pm
(937) 498-1195

After business hours: (800) 236-2442

What kind of fees are charged when I overdraw my account?

Overdraft associated fees depend on which overdraft coverage option you have chosen. 

If you have enrolled in Overdraft Protection Sweep, we will automatically transfer funds from another deposit account you have at Mutual Federal into your overdrawn account with a $7 per transfer fee.

Overdraft Privilege, both standard and extended coverage, have a $30 per item fee. If multiple items overdraw your account on the same day, each item will be assessed an appropriate Overdraft Fee or a Return Item Fee. All fees and charges will be included as part of the Overdraft Privilege limit amount. 

For consumer accounts, there is a limit of 5 Overdraft Fees ($150.00) per day we will charge. We will not charge an Overdraft Fee if your personal account is overdrawn by $5 or less. 

If your account balance remains overdrawn for longer than 3 business days, we will charge your account a daily overdraft fee of $6 for each of the consecutive business days the account remains overdrawn, beginning with day 3. 

Overdraft Privilege is not a line of credit; it is a discretionary overdraft service that can be withdrawn at any time without prior notice.

Do I have to reside locally to open a deposit account?

Mutual Federal will not accept new deposit accounts outside of our local market area unless the customer has a previous transactional account. The market area is defined as any of the counties we have a branch in or a contiguous county to a branch location.
