Overdraft and Courtesy Pay

What is Courtesy Pay?

Courtesy Pay is another option for overdraft protection. Courtesy Pay is designed to help members when other alternatives have been exhausted.  Learn more about overdraft protection options.

How much does Courtesy Pay cost?

There is no cost if you do not use the service; however, you will be charged our standard non-sufficient funds/overdraft (NSF/OD) fee of $25.00 for each item we pay. “Use” means you initiate an overdraft or non-sufficient funds transaction.

Are there other additional overdraft protection services to cover non-sufficient funds (NSF) or overdraft (OD) situations?

Yes. You can apply for a Credit Human Line of Credit or request to have your savings or money market account set up for automatic fund transfers. The structure and features of these services differ from Courtesy Pay. To learn more about a Line of Credit call us at (210) 258-1234 or 800-688-7228 or visit one of our Credit Human locations.
Overdrafts should not be used to pay ordinary or routine expenses and you should not rely on overdrafts as a means to cover these expenses.  Avoid using this service as a short-term loan.

How quickly do I have to deposit funds to cover an overdraft?

You should bring your checking account to a positive balance as soon as possible. If you are unable to immediately bring your checking account to a positive balance, you will receive notices from us informing you of the situation and your options. If your account is still negative after 44 days, your account will be closed and reported to a consumer reporting agency and further collection efforts may begin.  If you are unable to pay the balance in full within 44 days and the negative balance was the result of Courtesy Pay, Credit Human may agree to set you up on an installment plan with up to four substantially equal monthly payments at a 0% interest rate.

I have a joint owner on my account, but I don’t want them to have overdraft coverage. Can my debit card be opted in and another card opted out?

No, overdraft coverage cannot be split. Overdraft coverage applies to the account, not to individual cards.

What accounts are not eligible for Courtesy Pay?

Savings accounts, public fund/charitable organization accounts, certain trust accounts, deceased member accounts, student minor accounts, and any other accounts for individuals under the age of 18 are not eligible for this service. We may, at our sole option and discretion, limit the number of your accounts eligible for Courtesy Pay to one account per household and/or one account per taxpayer identification number.

What if I don’t want Courtesy Pay?

You may choose to opt-out of Courtesy Pay by visiting any Credit Human location or calling our Member Service Center at (210) 258-1234 or 800-688-7228.  Without Courtesy Pay, your insufficient funds items may be returned to the payee and/or declined at the point of purchase. You will still be charged the standard NSF/OD fee of $25.00.

What if I overdraw more than the limit?

In most instances, any item that exceeds the Courtesy Pay limit will be returned NSF/OD and the standard fee of $25.00 will be charged to your account.

Why do I have to provide prior authorization for ATM and one-time debit card transactions to be covered by Courtesy Pay? How do I provide this authorization?

Federal regulation requires that we obtain your prior authorization to pay these items. If you would like to provide authorization for us to pay these items, please visit any Credit Human location or call our Member Service Center  at (210) 258-1234 or 800-688-7228.
