Overdraft Services

Cover your checks and electronic transactions

Everyone can make an honest mistake on their accounts - forgetting a check that hasn't cleared or having a large expense post unexpectedly. With Overdraft Services from 7 17 Credit Union, you can attach a financial safety net to your accounts to avoid costly merchants' fees and the stress of bounced checks and denied transactions.

Back up the checks you write with your own funds. You can choose up to five Overdraft Protection accounts, and you designate the order in which the accounts are used. If you write a check that lacks sufficient funding, these sources kick in to cover the difference. Funds will be automatically transferred from the designated accounts. Funds may be withdrawn in $100 increments from your line of credit or Visa® account.

  • Membership Savings or Club Savings Accounts
  • High Yield Money Market account
  • Visa® Rewards Credit Card

There's an $8 fee for every Overdraft Protection transfer, but your fee may be reduced or waived if you're part of the Simply Rewarding Member Rewards Program.

To designate your Overdraft Protection accounts, simply stop by one of our branch offices or call our Teleservices Representatives during regular office hours.

When funds are not available in your checking account or designated overdraft protection sources, 7 17 offers Courtesy Pay. This overdraft service is automatically extended to Members 18 or older in good standing* to cover shortfalls on written checks, electronic transfers from a checking account and recurring debit card transactions.

Courtesy Pay will honor the transaction(s) by bringing the checking account to a negative balance not to exceed $1,000**. 7 17 will mail a special notice informing you that your account has been brought to a negative balance to pay the check(s), and the account must be brought to a positive balance within 30 days.

Courtesy Pay carries a $30 fee*** for each paid item. All covered overdrafts are subject to your Courtesy Pay limit.** Courtesy Pay is not available on savings accounts.

Courtesy Pay Plus, an extension of Courtesy Pay, covers ATM withdrawals from your checking account and point-of-sale (POS) transactions using your debit card. Members 18 or older in good standing can opt-in to use Courtesy Pay Plus. Unless you opt-in, federal law prohibits your POS debit card and ATM transactions from being covered by our Courtesy Pay Plus service.

You may also opt-out of our Courtesy Pay Plus service at any time.

Courtesy Pay Plus carries a $30 fee*** for each paid item. If you do not opt-in to Courtesy Pay Plus, you will not be charged a fee for overdrafts on ATM and debit card transactions. However, your transactions will be declined, and you will need to find other means to complete those transactions.
