COURTESY PAY11

Courtesy Pay is an added protection to your account when unforeseen circumstances happen. It covers a shortage of funds on debit card purchases, point-of-sale (POS) transactions, ATM withdrawals, checks, and ACH transactions so your transaction can be processed. Courtesy Pay may cover insufficient funds transactions up to an approved limit for a $32.00 fee per presentment. Instead of returning a check to the merchant because of insufficient funds, the Credit Union may process your transaction, saving you additional charges from the merchant.

To have the benefit of courtesy pay applied to ATM/debit card transactions, you must opt-in.

OVERDRAFT PROTECTION12

If you have multiple accounts with the Credit Union, you may sign up to have funds automatically transferred to cover charges with no fee. Members can choose to use any savings account, money market account, or a Knoxville TVA Employees Credit Union Credit Card. If there are not sufficient funds in any of the accounts, the transaction will be declined.
