Privilege Pay
Privilege Pay is a Credit Union provided service to assist you in maintaining your checking account when unexpected financial obligations arise. It will allow you to save time and have insufficient transactions to be paid, not returned up to a pre-determined limit. This service allows the following items to be paid using Privilege Pay: overdrafts for ATM (excluding cash withdrawals), clear share drafts, ACH debit or even one-time debit card transactions using your VISA® Check Plus card.

  • For a small $28 fee per insufficient funds transaction, Privilege Pay, will pay your transaction(s) up to $500 (including fees and transactions).
  • If you do not opt-in for Privilege Pay, Generations will not be able to pay any overdrafts you may have for ATM or one-time debit card transactions, and the transaction will be denied.
  • Any authorized signer on a joint account may register for Privilege Pay.

Contact our Member Service Center at 210-230-9393 to opt-in or register by completing this form and returning to a branch location or sending it to: Generations Federal Credit Union, P.O. Box 791870, San Antonio, TX 78279-1870.
