Courtesy Pay for Overdraft Protection
In today's busy world, it's easy to lose track of things. That includes exactly how much money you have left in your checking account. OneAZ offers Overdraft Source and Courtesy Pay options for overdraft protection to cover you in unexpected moments, like when you don’t have enough funds in your account to cover a transaction.
OneAZ’s Overdraft Source allows you to link accounts to your checking account to pull funds from if you overdraw your account. Courtesy pay covers payments when there aren’t enough funds in your account.
