Courtesy Pay Opt-In

Thank you for your interest in Courtesy Pay. We realize life happens and overdraft protection may come in handy at times.

An overdraft occurs when you do not have enough money in your account to cover a transaction, but we pay it anyway. We can cover your overdrafts in two different ways:

  • We have standard overdraft practices that come with your account.
  • We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as a link to a savings account or line of credit, which may be less expensive than our standard overdraft practices. To learn more, ask us about these plans.

Review our Standard Overdraft Practices

What are the standard overdraft practices that come with my account?

  • We do authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions:

    • ATM transactions

  • If we do not authorize and pay an overdraft, your transaction will be declined.
