A small mistake shouldn't have major consequences
As your financial champion, MSGCU has your back.
Early credits for payroll deposits
Payroll direct deposits are deposited into your account up to two days early, provided the funds are received from your employer. This gives you early access to funds and helps prevent overdrafts before they occur.
Protection from overdraft consequences with Courtesy Pay
Courtesy Pay is a service members enroll in to protect their checking account if there are not sufficient funds to cover a transaction. It may cover overdrafts from paper checks, ATM transactions and electronic payments.*
Once you have overdrawn your account more than the minimum balance shown below, each over-drafted transaction incurs a fee, up to a daily maximum. But you avoid returned-check fees and reduced credit scores because you can avoid overdrafts being reported to the business involved in the transaction or credit-rating agencies.
For members with $250 or more in monthly direct deposits:
The first $50 overdrawn on your account will be fee free, providing a buffer before a Courtesy Pay fee may be charged.
Maximum of four Courtesy Pay fees assessed per day, providing relief should you have multiple overdrafts on the same day.
MSGCU will provide up to $1,500, including fees, to cover overdrafts.

Whether overdrafts will be paid is discretionary, and the Credit Union reserves the right to not pay if the account is not in good standing.
