Western Federal Credit Union

Banking - Financial Services
201 - 500 employees  |  
Western Federal Credit Union is a member-owned financial cooperative that integrates the credit union motto "people helping people" in all our business decisions. We hold steadfast in the belief stated by the treasurer of a midwestern credit union back in 1935 when credit unions were helping Americans through the Great Depression, "not for profit, not for charity, but for service."

Since the 2003 merger of equals with TRW Systems Federal Credit Union, Western is one of the nation's leading credit unions with over $1 billion in assets and over 119,000 members across the country. We have a diverse group of sponsor companies in our field of membership in industries such as information technology, service, airline, retail, manufacturing, and aerospace.

Western, like all credit unions, has a volunteer Board of Directors who is elected by the members. Since we don't have stockholders, we return earnings to our members through a full line of products and services, competitive rates, and fewer or no fees.

You're Covered With Courtesy Pay

It can happen to anyone. You make an honest mistake in your checkbook, and suddenly you realize you don't have sufficient funds to cover all your outstanding checks. With Western's Courtesy Pay program, however, you can avoid some of the expense, hassle and embarrassment of an inadvertent overdraft.

With Courtesy Pay, your Credit Union provides you with a pre-approved overdraft privilege of up to $750 for your checking account. If you overdraw your account, we may pay your overdrawn checks up to this $750 limit, including a $30 per-item fee.

With Courtesy Pay...

  • not pay merchant returned check fees
  • will not pay collection agency fees for returned items
  • avoid the embarrassment of items returned for insufficient funds
  • You have additional protection for your good credit

To get Courtesy Pay protection, you don't need to do a thing - you're already covered if you have a Western checking account with overdraft protection. If you've already established overdraft protection methods, such as a Western Signature Line of Credit, we will always look to pay any overdraft via these methods first. Courtesy Pay is just an additional layer of protection for you.

If you do not want to be protected by Courtesy Pay, you may "opt-out" by requesting a form from our call center or by visiting a branch and signing an Opt-Out form. Remember, Courtesy Pay costs you nothing unless we actually pay an overdraft check for you.

Please contact us for more information about Courtesy Pay, and find out about our other methods available for overdraft protection.

Your Western membership must be in good standing to qualify for the Courtesy Pay program. Courtesy Pay overdrafts must be repaid within 15 days. We reserve the right to discontinue Courtesy Pay privileges at any time. Using Courtesy Pay may be more costly than other overdraft methods we may offer.
