Imagine you have run out of gas and have no money in your checking account. When you choose Privilege Pay, your debit and ATM transactions are covered, even if there aren’t enough funds in your account. So now you can get fuel to get where you’re going. Whether it's emergency auto repairs or urgent medical care, we’re there to help. And we don’t charge an annual fee for this service. Currently, transactions under $10 only pay a service charge equal to the amount of the purchase. Transactions over $10 incur a $28 service charge. It’s sort of like having insurance for your checking account.
You can protect your account in other ways, too:
- Get free alerts on your mobile phone or email with Alerts.
- Check your Credit Union accounts, anytime, anywhere, with Mobile Banking.
- Deposit and move money to your accounts to manage your funds with Online Deposit and Transfer Money.
