Member Privilege is an overdraft privilege that is assigned to each Y-12 Federal Credit Union checking account automatically (60 days after the open date). Existing draft accounts in good standing already have Y-12 FCU Member Privilege privilege today! This service is FREE until you need it. Member Privilege saves you the discomfort and embarrassment of bouncing a check or having your debit card declined when making a transaction.
For each transaction presented, in which funds are not currently available, we pay the item rather than return to the merchant (up to $500 limit maximum). In addition, a
Member Privilege fee is charged for each item paid. For your record keeping, a Member Privilege notice is sent for each item posted. Transactions are defined as checks, ACH postings (such as automated payments coming from your account), Debit Card Charges, withdrawals made with a teller, or ATM withdrawals.
Once a transaction is paid with Member Privilege (account balance is negative), you have 30 calendar days to make a deposit to bring the account balance positive. Once the account balance is positive, the draft account has the full $500 Member Privilege protection available to use over and over again. In the event the account is negative after the 30 days, the service will be suspended indefinitely.
If you wish to "Opt Out" of the Member Privilege Program or would like more information, please contact us at (865) 482-1043 or Cyberlink@y12fcu.org
