Courtesy Pay is designed to help you. There is no cost for the service unless it is used. With Courtesy Pay, we strive to pay and approve items whenever possible. We will generally pay overdrafts up to a discretionary limit that is determined by your account history and performance. There’s a small per item fee of $30 each time we pay an item through Courtesy Pay, but it’s a small price to pay for the embarrassment and extra hassles you could suffer if denied your purchase or transaction. With Courtesy Pay, you will have 30 days to deposit the necessary funds to your account to repay or to clear your negative balance.

Consumer transactions may be processed in any order. The Credit Union reserves the right to refuse any overdraft transaction.
