Avoid that "uh-oh" at checkout
Overdraft Line of Credit and Courtesy Pay are services we offer to help members prevent declined payments. With an Overdraft Line of Credit, you get a line of credit attached to your checking account that covers payments that exceed your account balance. Courtesy Pay allows Elevate to pay checks, debits, ATM transactions, and ACHs that are drawn in excess of your checking account balance.
- Pay confidently
- Avoid the hassle of declined payments
- No fees for either service unless you use them

Frequently Asked Questions
Members must apply for an Overdraft Line of Credit and qualify on approved credit.
If you overdraw on your checking, we may cover the amount charged anyway, saving you from the embarrassment and frustration of a declined card. A $23 fee is assessed for this service, but you may save money on bounced checks and merchant fees. If there are available funds in the member’s shares account, the funds will be transferred to checking before Courtesy Pay occurs. Courtesy Pay is for accounts in good standing, has a maximum coverage amount of $600, and may not become effective for the first 90 days of a new account.
Overdraft Protection is a line of credit that's linked directly to your account. If you overdraw on your checking, it steps up to cover the costs—so that you don't have to pay hefty insufficient funds fees. From there, it works like a simple loan from Elevate. Pay it off right away to avoid interest, or as you can for a low rate. To opt in to Overdraft Protection, contact us at any time.
