Sweep Accounts Available!

A “sweep” is a type of automatic transfer created so that funds automatically move (or “sweep”) from your checking account to the loan account  in order to maintain a desired minimum and maximum balance in the checking account as well as pay off your loan faster. You can determine the desired balance. This automatic “sweep” function cuts out the "manual" work and saves you precious time.
*Note: The sweep transfer does NOT function as an Overdraft Transfer to cover checks in the event funds are not available. A sweep account will only transfer funds after all checks have cleared for the day. You can set up another account for overdraft protection in addition to the Sweep Account.
