Courtesy Pay

This is a courtesy we offer to members in good standing.
We reserve the right to revoke your Courtesy Pay privilege at any time.

What is Courtesy Pay?

Courtesy Pay is a¬†service that adds a measure of protection to your checking account. Courtesy Pay may cover your insufficient funds checks, up to your approved limit, for one low fee of $25 per covered overdraft transaction. That means, instead of returning a check to the merchant because of insufficient funds, the credit union may pay your check, saving you additional charges from the merchant collection companies, in addition to the credit union’s insufficient fund fee. It saves you the embarrassment an inadvertent overdraft can cause. It also helps protect your credit rating.

How does Courtesy Pay Work?

Overdrafts on your checking account, up to your available limit [including the amount of the overdrawn item(s) and the Courtesy Pay fees(s)] may be honored by Muskegon Co-op Federal Credit Union for members in good standing. A $25 fee will be assessed for each item that draws your account negative. You then must bring the account positive within 30 days to remain in good standing, either through a direct deposit, transfer of funds, or a deposit at one of our branch offices.

What if I already have Overdraft Protection?

If you have established other overdraft protection methods, such as a line of credit or automatic transfer from your other accounts, we will always look to pay any overdraft by those other methods first before paying your overdraft utilizing Courtesy Pay and imposing a $25 fee for each overdraft we pay.

Do I have to Apply for this Service?

No. We require no applications or additional signatures. As long as you are a member in good standing which includes having an account with us for a least 90 days, you make regular deposits to that account, bring your account back to a positive balance within 30 days, and there are no legal orders against the account, your Courtesy Pay privilege remains activated.  Courtesy Pay is a way for us to provide a higher level of service to our members by helping protect your account and reputation when an inadvertent overdraft occurs.
