Overdraft Options

Life happens, but we've got you covered. If you overdraw your account, you can either pay us back or pay yourself back - choose what works for you. 

Overdraft Protection - Overdraft Protection applies to all transactions and may help prevent overdrafts on your account. We'll automatically transfer funds (at no cost to you) to your eligible checking account from one of your other accounts or a line of credit you may have with us. The money goes to your checking account to make sure you have money to complete your transaction in real-time. No transfer fees, and no wait time.

For your convenience, we set up overdraft protection automatically when you open any checking account. 

Premium Overdraft Services - We will cover the amount you overdraw in your checking account for a fee of $32 per transaction*. You have 30 days from the time of each transaction to pay back the overdrawn amount, plus the fee.
