Courtesy Pay

Courtesy Pay can provide extra protection and peace of mind for those times (overdrafts) when there are just not enough funds in your Checking Account to cover a transaction, whether it’s from paying a bill with a paper check or using a Debit Card for a purchase.

Learn more about Overdraft Protection and our Courtesy Pay program below:

When you link your E-Central Savings Account to your Checking Account, you’ll avoid the costly fees associated with having insufficient funds in your account. A personal line of credit​ also can be used as a financial backstop. When your checking balance falls below zero, funds will be transferred automatically to your Checking Account.

E-Central’s Courtesy Pay service covers overdrafts from checks, Visa Debit Card and ATM transactions.

  • We honor up to $300, $500 or $1,000 in overdrafts++
  • For transactions $5.00 or less, there will be no fee (Effective: June 1, 2016)
  • We charge your account when an overdraft occurs and notify you by mail
  • We limit overdraft fees to a maximum of four (4) fees per day. (Effective: June 1, 2016)
  • You must bring your account current within 15 days
