New legislation that will take effect this summer requires us to ask members to "opt in" for Courtesy Pay. We can no longer automatically offer Courtesy Pay with new accounts that meet credit specifications. Please use this form to opt in to Courtesy Pay. If you do not opt in you will lose Courtesy Pay overdraft coverage on August 15, 2010.

If you do NOT "opt in" to Courtesy Pay the transaction will be denied. Community Choice Credit Union does not pay for any fees you incur for a rejected payment.
