Over Draft Privilege Banner

Courtesy Pay helps protect you against having your checks returned in the event of an inadvertent overdraft of your account. This services gives you a reserve for emergencies or unexpected situations. There is no fee for having this privilege on your account and you're only charged if you overdraw your account. You don't have Courtesy Pay on your account until you receive written confirmation from us that it has been added.

Here is how Courtesy Pay works for you:
Courtesy Pay is not a line of credit. However, if you overdraw your account, we will normally pay the overdraft, subject to the limit of your Courtesy Pay.

For example, suppose you do not have Courtesy Pay and your account balance is $50. If you write a $100 check, we will charge your account a fee for writing a check with insufficient funds. This fee is currently $30. The check will then be returned. In most cases, the establishment that you wrote the check to will require you to redeem the check. You will also probably be charged a fee by that company (usually around $35) for writing an NSF check. You've now incurred two fees ($30 at McCoy and $35 at the merchant) for a check that wasn’t even paid.

However, if you have Courtesy Pay, here is how the situation typically would have worked. When the check arrived, the Credit Union would pay the check and charge you the $30 overdraft transaction fee. The total charge would've been $30 compared to $30 PLUS $35 in merchant fees if you didn't have Courtesy Pay. Additionally, you avoid being added to any bad checklists on the check approval networks or with the merchant.

When you use your Courtesy Pay you must remember to subtract the overdraft fee from your account balance. In the example, $130 would've been from your account: $100 (the check amount) PLUS $30 (the overdraft fee amount). Any item that comes in while your account has a negative balance will  be charged the $30 overdraft fee. It is important to record these fees. Your next deposit will bring your balance to the deposit amount minus the overdrawn amount and the overdraft fee.
