Courtesy Pay and Overdraft Protection are different layers of security to protect you from the merchant fees associated with returned checks.

When a check clears from your account without the funds to cover the entirety of the check, Overdraft Protection will cover you if certain criteria are met. You must have a secondary account (such as a savings account) with funds available for transfer. Kirtland FCU will automatically transfer the needed funds to cover the check, avoiding both merchant fees and Kirtland FCU’s NSF fees.

If you do not have a secondary account with funds available, you may still be covered by Courtesy Pay. Kirtland FCU will clear the check to the merchant, creating a negative balance in your account but avoiding merchant fees for a returned check. The charge for Courtesy Pay is a NSF fee of $30 per transaction. We will pay checks that are negative up to $500, including the assessed NSF fee. You then have 30 days to bring your account current.

Checking Mobile Banking Mobile Deposit
We review ALL deposited checks. If your check is rejected, review the check for the following:
  •    The payee isn't on the account you’re depositing to
  •     A missing or irregular payer signature
  •     Numeric and written amount variance
  •     A missing or irregular endorsement (must have “Mobile Deposit Only” written in the endorsement area), signature, or account number
  •     A stale date or missing date
  •     An illegible amount
If you discover any of these items, the check will need to be re-issued to you prior to deposit.

$5,000 per day and $10,000 per month (calculated on a rolling 30-day period).

These limits are cumulative, not transactional—making a single $5,000 deposit or 20 $250 deposits will result in the same amount applied toward your daily and monthly limit.

Stop Payment Checking
To stop an ACH payment, contact the debiting institution to request they stop it on their end. Kirtland FCU can also process stop payments on ACH—call us or come in to any  branch location to initiate this action.
