Overdraft Protection

Overdraft Protection

We understand there are times your Checking Account may accidentally be out of balance, and that’s why we offer several overdraft protection options:

Savings

  • Automatically moves money from your Savings to Checking to pay for overdrafts, as long as funds are available.
  • A fee applies each day a transfer is needed. Federal regulations limit this to 6 uses a month in combination with other transfers.

Overdraft Protection Line of Credit

  • Checking Account is covered up to your available Overdraft Protection Line of Credit limit. Interest is charged only when you use your line of credit.
  • Exact amount is transferred rather than a larger minimum amount.

OOPS (Occasional Overdraft Privilege Service)

  • OOPS is a discretionary service or courtesy offered by the Bank that will pay overdrafts on eligible checking accounts up to an assigned limit. A fee applies for each overdraft item paid.

For details on any of our overdraft protection options, please call us.
