If you have CheckOK set up as overdraft protection on your checking account, Courtesy Pay performs as a backup to that service when there are not enough funds in the CheckOK account to cover a transaction.

Yes, ESL Courtesy Pay acts as additional coverage once your Cash Reserve, Business Overdraft Line of Credit, or CheckOK have reached their limits.

This can occur if there are not enough funds available in the savings account or if the savings account has reached the Regulation D limit for the month. 

You may have one form of overdraft protection on a checking account. To replace your Cash Reserve with CheckOK, after you pay the balance down to zero we will close the Cash Reserve and open the CheckOK service.
