*Per item presented means each time an item is presented, including re-presentment.

Overdraft Protection applies to all transactions and may help prevent overdrafts by automatically transferring funds to your checking account from another account or line of credit you may have at Merrimack Valley Credit Union for a fee or finance charge. Please note that overdraft lines of credit are subject to credit approval.

Courtesy Pay allows you to overdraw your account up to the disclosed limit for a fee to pay a transaction. Even if you have Overdraft Protection, Courtesy Pay is still available as secondary coverage if the other protection source is exhausted. Please review What Else You Should Know and the Discretionary Overdraft Privilege Policy for other important information.

While Merrimack Valley Credit Union will have the discretion to pay overdrafts on accounts in good standing, any such payment is a discretionary courtesy, and not a right of the member or an obligation of Merrimack Valley Credit Union in its sole and absolute discretion, can cease paying overdrafts at any time without prior notice of reason or cause.
