Click here for the form to Opt In for Member Privilege - additional Checking Account protection.

Why Opt-In?
Carolina Postal Credit Union's Member Privilege is designed for your protection and convenience. The majority of our members do not overdraw their accounts and incur fees, however, overdrafts can occur. Without Member Privilege, every day debit card transactions & ATM withdrawals may be declined if you attempt to make a purchase without sufficient funds in your CPCU account.

What other options do I have?
We encourage all members to set up regular payroll allotments/deductions to build an emergency 'nest egg' in their share account to cover unexpected expenses. Another option would be to apply for and open a CPCU overdraft line-of-credit to cover purchases.

Please contact us if you would like more information on additional choices you can make to protect your debit card purchases through your CPCU checking account.

How do I Opt-In?
Members may contact us at any CPCU branch or click here for the form.  Once you "Opt-In" for this coverage you may rescind at any time. Just contact us or click here for the form, print, sign and return the Opt-In form to any CPCU branch.

Why Opt In and what is Member Privilege?  Federal lawmakers created new rules for overdraft protection programs that went into effect July 1, 2010. As a result you must "opt in" or agree in writing to continue or start coverage through our overdraft protection program: Member Privilege.

Once you have signed & returned the form (opt in) CPCU's Member Privilege covers everyday debit card transactions and ATM withdrawals and fees are incurred with each overdraft. Please note that this federal regulation only applies to every-day debit card transactions and ATM withdrawals. The federal regulation for Opting In does NOT apply to Member Privilege coverage of written checks and recurring debit transactions such as health club memberships, utility bills, etc.


Need Check Copies?  New Format as of 2/4/08:

If you need a copy of a check that cleared BEFORE February 4th, 2008, you will need to contact an Account Manager at 1.800.865.0445.  Due to Check 21 Federal regulations, check copies will no longer be available online in a "gray-scale" but pure black & white copies.  Due to the format changes for the new black & white copies, older versions of cleared checks will need to be ordered through us.
