Cover Your Account
Even with the many tools available to manage your checking account, sometimes the unexpected happens. At Nova CU, we help you manage those moments and gain peace of mind with our Member Privilege Overdraft Program.
Our program is a service designed to allow you to temporarily cover your transactions, even with non-sufficient funds. Member Privilege is not fee-free, but it can save you the embarrassment, stress and hassle of having your check card declined or having a check returned.
If you want this coverage on your account, you must mail the Opt In Form to:
Member Services & Lending Nova Credit Union 3601 Mulberry Church Road Charlotte NC 28208
If you have any questions regarding Member Privilege, please feel free to call us at 800-865-0445 or visit any branch to speak with an Account Manager.
Did you try Member Privilege and didn't like it? Not a problem. Just call us at 800-865-0445.
Cover your account! And yet Member Privilege is NOT for everyone!
Member Privilege should NOT be used as SOP (Standard Operating Procedure). Member Privilege is for emergency coverage only. If we feel that you are not managing Member Privilege in your best interests, we will contact you about counseling, budgeting and offer you different options to manage your account. Mismanagement or abuse of Member Privilege will lead to denial of Member Privilege coverage for your account.
