Standard Overdraft Practices

We authorize and pay overdrafts for checking account transactions, automatic bill payments, and ACH payments. ATM and debit card transactions are not included. If we do not authorize the overdraft payment, the transaction will be declined.

Overdraft Fees

You will be charged a fee of $34.98 every time we pay for an overdraft – with a maximum fee of $174.90 per day. If your account is overdrawn for more than 7 consecutive business days, we will charge a fee of $5 for each business day.

Opt Out of Courtesy Pay

If you would like to decline standard overdraft coverage, contact a Customer Service representative online or by calling 888‑733‑5041. If you would like to extend Courtesy Pay coverage to include ATM and debit card transactions, contact us or fill out the form below.
