What is Privilege Pay?

Teachers offers Privilege Pay Protection for qualified checking accounts. This service can save you the expense and inconvenience of returned checks in the event of an overdraft in your primary checking account.

Upon enrollment, we’ll honor your checks, Bill Pay and/or ACH transactions, helping you avoid service fees or late payment charges.

A service privilege pay fee ACH of $32 per item will eliminate the expense of fees charged by merchants for Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) checks.
