Debit Card Notice of Change 

Overdraft protection loans are available up to $200 upon credit approval. If you overdraft your account and do not have overdraft protection available, we will transfer the funds (if they are available) from your savings account to your checking account to cover the overdraft, but you will be responsible for the $28.00 insufficient funds fee.

 Courtesy Pay Overdraft Protection

Most of us have found ourselves facing an occasional cash shortfall, be it the result of a checkbook error or an unexpected bill. If you have ever accidentally bounced a check, you already know that in addition to the embarrassment, you may also face merchant fees for the returned check along with the inconvenience of returning to the merchant to correct the error. And while a declined debit card does not create merchant fees, it can be an embarrassing experience.

L.C.E. Federal Credit Union understands, which is why we offer Courtesy Pay. Courtesy Pay is a non-contractual overdraft protection service that requires no action on your part to enroll. There are no fees to have Courtesy Pay available on your share draft account. You only pay our standard NSF fee of $28 if you use Courtesy Pay to cover an insufficient item. With Courtesy Pay, instead of your check being returned or your debit card purchase being declined, we may pay or approve those items up to your overdraft limit of $500.

Courtesy Pay is automatically available to our share draft checking account holders for checks, automatic bill payments and other debit transactions. If you would like to have overdraft protection through Courtesy Pay for your ATM withdrawals and everyday debit card purchases, simply ask us to add Courtesy Pay protection for these types of transactions. Please call the Credit Union at 440-357-2560 or email us at info@lcefcu.org to Opt-In.

Courtesy Pay is one more way we can help you meet your unexpected financial needs.

Credit unions, like other financial institutions, are closely regulated and operate in a very prudent manner. The National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), administered by the National Credit Union Administration, an agency of the federal government, insures deposits of credit union members at more than 9,000 federal and state-chartered credit unions nationwide. Deposits are insured up to $250,000.
