Courtesy Pay is Here
Lorillard Federal Credit Union has introduced a new checking feature called Courtesy Pay. With Courtesy Pay,
our intent is to provide you with another resource to help manage your occasional cash shortfall.
Courtesy Pay is a non-contractual courtesy, whereby we may honor your insufficient transactions up to your
limit of $400, as long as you continue to maintain your checking account in good standing, which includes at least:
- continuing to make deposits consistent with your past practices;
- you are not in default on any loan obligation to Lorillard Federal Credit Union;
- you bring your account to a positive balance at least once every 30 days.
Courtesy Pay does not guarantee that Lorillard Federal Credit Union will pay your insufficient item.
However, if we do pay your overdraft, your account will be charged our standard $28 non-sufficient funds (NSF) fee.
If you would like overdraft coverage for your ATM withdrawals and everyday debit card purchases, then simply ask us
to add this coverage to your account.
Contact your Lorillard Federal Credit Union Member Services Representative today with questions or to Opt-In for
ATM withdrawals and everyday debit card purchases.
