Overdraft Protection

Overdraft Protection

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

  • We may cover overdrafts in your checking account up to your available Overdraft Protection Line of Credit limit. Interest is charged only on the amounts you borrow.
  • Exact amount of the overdraft is transferred from the Overdraft Protection Line of Credit rather than a larger minimum amount.
  • Subject to credit approval.

For details on any of our overdraft protection options, please call us at (781) 729-2130.
