Offline Version: PDF

Term share drafts Definition: Interest-paying checking accounts maintained by credit unions. These function much like standard demand deposit checking accounts in that the funds can be withdrawn "on demand" by writing a check, but an interest is paid on the outstanding balance. Share draft accounts are one type of checkable deposits. Others are demand deposits (standard checking accounts), negotiable order of withdrawal (NOW) accounts, and automatic transfer service (ATS) accounts.
