Everyone Appreciates a Little Courtesy  


Tampa Bay Federal provides peace of mind to our members through free overdraft protection!
When you open your checking account we link it to your primary savings account to automatically cover overdrafts.     

We also offer Courtesy Pay, a low fee-based overdraft protection that generally covers up to a maximum of $500 in transactions that may be otherwise denied or returned. You can sign up for this value added service through online banking, or by speaking with one of our Member Services representatives today.

 Big Money for Local Charities 


Tampa Bay Federal not only knows how to take care of your money, we know how to raise some, too!  

We participated in several major fundraising events for local charities this spring.   

  • The Credit Union Cruise for Kid Motorcycle Poker Run was an astonishing success, raising more than $70,000.
  • Our own Swing Fore Golf Tournament raised $9,300 which was donated to All Children's Hospital, an HCC scholarship, and the FAME organization.  
  • Tampa Bay Federal employees formed a Relay for Life team and raised $7,500 in donations for this American Cancer Society event.
