1Courtesy Pay (C.P.) for checks and ACH transactions is a service that allows SPIRE to pay an item(s) written on our member’s checking account even if it causes the account to become overdrawn. C.P. for checks and ACH is automatically added to consumer checking accounts where the primary member is over the age of 18 once the account has been open at least 60 days and has been maintained in good standing. The member is able to opt out of this service by notifying the credit union. Reg E C.P. for debit cards transactions is separate and a member must Opt-In in order to obtain approval before allowing payment of one time debit card purchases that may create an overdraft. For debit card transactions, you must have previously opted-in or the transaction will be declined. Both C.P. services may provide certain accountholders in good standing with the ability to overdraw their personal checking account up to a maximum of $500. This privilege is only for consumer checking accounts and will be limited to a maximum amount of $500 overdraft (negative) balance. Overdraft / C.P. fees, as well as the amount of the overdraft, will be subtracted from any C.P. limit. 
Payment by the credit union is a discretionary courtesy and not a right of the member or an obligation of the credit union. Transaction types that are eligible for checks & ACH C.P. include and are limited to: ACH transactions, checks and on-us checks presented at the teller counter. Transaction types that are eligible for Reg E C.P. include and are limited to: one time debit card transactions. 
You must bring your account balance to a positive balance at least once every 30 days or less, for a minimum period of 24-hours or Courtesy Pay may be suspended. You have up to 45 days to bring your account positive for a minimum period of 24-hours or your account will be closed. The credit union, at its discretion, can cancel these protection /services and cease paying overdrafts at any time without prior notice of reason or cause. Failure to bring the account to a positive balance will result in further collection action and negative information will be reported to the appropriate credit reporting agency.
SPIRE will not charge a fee if the available account balance is overdrawn by less than $10, if you are opted-in for Reg E C.P.
