Overdraft Protection services apply 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 finance charge.

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 for other important information.
