Opt-in for Courtesy Pay Protection and have peace of mind in knowing it is there when you need it and only if you need it.
Existing Accounts: Please note that as of August 15, 2010, if you do not opt-in to Courtesy Pay Protection, your everyday debit card transactions will be declined if there is not enough money in your checking account to cover your expenses.
