Free HVFCU Custom Checks

Based on your overall relationship with HVFCU, you may have the opportunity to earn free, HVFCU custom checks. As part of our rewards program, members who have an HVFCU free checking account and Visa® Debit Card get two free boxes of HVFCU custom checks annually. You can order your custom checks online.

Overdraft Protection

Embarrassing incidents due to insufficient funds in your checking account are easily avoided when you arrange for overdraft protection. Funds can be transferred automatically from a savings account, Readi-cash line of credit, or interest only home equity line of credit (application required) to cover shortages1. Please complete our Home Equity Line of Credit Overdraft Coverage Agreement if you would like to set up overdraft protection for your checking account from your interest only home equity line of credit.

In addition to the above sources, our complimentary Privilege Pay program provides additional peace of mind with additional overdraft protection for qualified checking accounts. In the event that funds are exhausted from your checking and any of your assigned sources, Privilege Pay steps in and pays up to $500 in total items, including any fees2.

1 Transactions from a savings account are subject to Regulation D withdrawal limitations, and our Truth in Savings Disclosure & Account Agreement.

2 A $30.00 fee will be assessed for each Privilege Pay item covered.
