Protect Your Account

Blue offers a full line of services to meet your account needs. Find out more about these great features available for enrollment on most of our checking products.

Courtesy Pay may cover you up to $1,000 (including fees)

Blue is now offering even more overdraft protection to members opted into Courtesy Pay. While it is not an invitation to overdraw an account, it is an added layer of safety for accidental overdrafts. Courtesy Pay may cover insufficient funds in the event you accidentally spend over your available checking limit up to $1,000 – giving you even more peace of mind.

Things to know about share overdrafts and fees:

  • An overdraft occurs when there isn't enough money in an account to cover a purchase, but we may pay it at our discretion with a $30 fee.
  • By opting-in to courtesy pay, we may authorize and pay overdrafts on purchases and automatic bill pay transactions. You can opt-in or out of this service at any time.
  • ​We DO NOT authorize and pay overdrafts for ATM transactions or one-time debit card transactions unless you opt-in for that service.
  • ​An NSF fee is charged each time an item is presented against NSF funds. The payee (or the payee’s institution) may represent a previously returned item. Each presentment against insufficient funds will result in a separate fee.
  • Courtesy Pay fees will not exceed five (5) per day.

All Courtesy Pay elections are within the sole discretion of Blue Federal Credit Union, and we have no contractual obligation with our members to pay or transfer any NSF item/transaction. Courtesy Pay is an optional service that we may provide as set forth herein to members in good standing. Courtesy Pay is not an entitlement, it is not a loan, and may be discontinued or denied at any time even though we have paid such items at other times. The Courtesy Pay program does not release you from your obligation to pay your debts including any amount by which your accounts may be overdrawn. Further, Courtesy Pay does not affect or limit Blue Federal Credit Union’s other rights/options regarding NSF transactions under our other policies, procedures and applicable laws. Debit card transactions may also post immediately. Blue Federal Credit Union may revoke the privilege at any time without notice. Members can opt in and opt out with this service.
