We reserve the right to charge these fees, but try to avoid them as often as possible. We have added some notations to help you understand why we have some of these items. ACU is the most recognized credit union in Colorado, and we are a not-for-profit institution, but we still have to maintain the services we provide and fees help us to do that. Many of the below fees actually cost us, on an individual basis, much more than we charge you. In these cases, we are only asking that you help us offset the total cost. In other cases, the fees are there to help avoid account abuse which saves our membership as a whole. Below is everything that you might run into. For unusual items, we try to explain further, but be assured that if we can get around these fees, we will certainly try!

Courtesy Pay: Covering payments by the credit union is a discretionary courtesy and not a right of the member or an obligation of the credit union. This privilege for consumer share draft accounts will be limited to a maximum amount of $1,200 (or less, depending on approved limit) balance in the negative. Transaction types that are eligible for courtesy pay include and are limited to: ACH transactions, debit card transactions, and drafts (checks). You must bring your account balance to a positive balance within every 30-day period for a minimum of 24 hours to remain eligible. The credit union, at is sole discretion, can cancel this protection, and cease paying overdrafts at any time wihtout prior notice of reason or cause. Approval is required before being allowed this service. Additionally, this is an "at-will" program. You may opt-out of coverage at any time by contacting the credit union and providing written instructions if necessary. Of note, we offer several levels and various limits to this service (e.g. use for all transactions or just ACH/ check options). To discuss this service or help us customize it for your needs, please contact us.
