Overdraft Options

While we do not encourage overdrafts, we understand that unanticipated expenses or unforeseen problems can leave you with not enough money in your checking account. Our goal is to assist you in avoiding unexpected Overdraft or Return Item fees as well as the inconvenience of having transactions declined or returned unpaid. Visit our Overdraft Options page to learn about the types of Overdraft coverage we offer and how you can avoid fees and best manage your account.

1The payment of transactions into overdraft is discretionary and we reserve the right to not pay. Generally, we do not pay overdrafts if you are not making regular deposits, or you have excessive overdrafts, or based on your account history and how you maintain your account. We may change your overdraft privileges due to poor account management. Our Overdraft Item Fee is $33 per item (max 4 per day). We will not charge you this fee if your balance is overdrawn by $20 or less, or the transaction overdrawing the account is $20 or less. Our Return Item Fee is $33 per item (max 4 per day). We will not charge you this fee if the amount of the transaction being returned is $20 or less. We may pay overdrafts for checks and other transactions using your account number and for automatic bill payments (ACH and recurring debit transactions), and if you give us permission, we may authorize and pay overdrafts for ATM transactions and everyday non-recurring debit transactions (individual debit card purchases such as grocery store or one-time online purchases). Our expectation is you bring your account to a positive balance immediately (including payment of all bank fees and charges).
