Protect yourself from overdrafts with Courtesy Pay

Unforeseen expenses sometimes occur, and you might not have enough money in your account to cover those costs. Courtesy Pay from HHFCU saves you from the inconvenience and embarrassment of insufficient funds in your account. Plus, you’ll have the added measure of protecting your credit rating.

HHFCU will cover your overdrafts up to $500. This is not a line of credit. There is a fee of $32 each time we pay an overdraft, but you will not be caught in the predicament of having your debit card transaction declined due to lack of funds. Get started by signing up for Courtesy Pay.

Overdraft Protection FAQ

If you do not have enough funds in your account to cover a transaction for payment, Courtesy Pay allows the transaction to process. Each time a transaction processes without sufficient funds, the account will be charged a fee and the balance remains negative until the amount of the transaction and fee are repaid.

There is no limit on the number of transactions. However, once the negative balance reaches $500 on an account, transactions will no longer be covered by Courtesy Pay.

If an account has reached the $500 negative balance limit, the payment will be returned and Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) fees will be charged to the account. These NSF fees will also add to the account negative balance.

Courtesy Pay will cover checks, ACH requests, electronic bill payments, debit card transactions and ATM withdrawals. (Please note: coverage for ATM/Debit Card transactions will only be turned on if we receive a signed opt in.)

Yes. No matter the amount of overdraft from the account, the fee will always be the same. So please note that a $5 debit card purchase could cost +$32 if the account is overdrawn and Courtesy Pay is used to cover the difference.

It will not cover transactions made at a branch. If a check is written against an HHFCU checking account that the payee tries to either cash at a teller window, or deposit in an ATM, it will not be covered.

No, it is not a line of credit. There is a fee each time Courtesy Pay is used. Any negative balance accrued using Courtesy Pay must be repaid.
