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.
New Accounts: For accounts that are opened on or after July 1, 2010, United Heritage will no longer be able to approve your everyday debit card transactions if there are insufficient funds in your account unless you opt-in.
