Overdraft Protection

Our checking account overdraft services are a good way to help make sure that your transactions are covered. We offer services to help you avoid overdrafts on your account. Overdraft services are optional and there are no enrollment fees. There is a short application process and approval is subject to credit approval.

How it works:
  • We will automatically transfer available funds to cover your transaction if you don't have enough money in your checking account. There is a $15 annual fee and each overdraft transfer costs $.50 at the time of transfer.
  • There is no fee to sign up for Overdraft Protection and a single Overdraft Protection transfer fee would be charged only if we transfer funds to cover a negative balance.

Avoid Overdrafts

Overdrafts and bounced checks occur when there is not enough money in your account to cover transactions. When you spend more than you have in your checking account, it can result in overdraft charges, which can add up fast.

Good account management is the lowest-cost way to avoid overdraft fees. Write your transactions down in your register and check your balance frequently by using Online Banking.

Here are some more ways to avoid overdrafts:

Keep track of how much money you have in your checking account by keeping your account register up-to-date. Record checks when you write them. Pay attention to electronic transactions you make. Record ATM withdrawals & fees, debit card purchases and online payments.

If you have a joint account and both account names have debit cards, make sure to write down purchases made by each person in your check register.

Remember to deduct automatic bill payments set up for utilities, insurance or loan payments.

When you view your account online, remember that some checks, automatic payments, and debit card transactions may not yet have cleared your account. Be sure your account has enough funds for these items.

If you notice that your checking account available balance is getting low, you can use Online Banking to transfer funds from your savings to your checking account instantly before overdrafts occur.

Sometimes mistakes happen. If you do overdraw your account, deposit money into the account as soon as possible to cover the overdraft plus overdraft fees. Depositing money into your account quickly will help you avoid additional overdrafts and fees.

Tools to Help You Avoid Overdraft Fees

You may inadvertently miscalculate the balance in your checking account. Mistakes happen. Or maybe you didn’t have time to make your deposit before you needed the funds.

If you write a check, authorize a payment, or make a withdrawal when there are not enough funds in your account, an overdraft will occur regardless of whether we elect to pay or decline the transaction. We will charge you a fee for each item that contributed to the overdraft under our standard overdraft practices,

The good news is, we offer a variety of options for overdraft protection plans and account management tools to assist you:

  • Prevent overdraft fees or fees from payees for returned checks or late payments.
  • Avoid a declined transaction due to insufficient funds.
Overdraft Protection Plans

Automatic access to funds in addition to the money in your checking account can help cover an overdraft. We offer options of two overdraft protection plans. Call or stop by to find out more.

Account Management Tools

Knowing the status of your balance, deposits, and payments can help you avoid making purchases that might overdraw your account. We offer several free account management tools with every personal checking account to help you keep track:

Direct Deposit saves you a trip to the Bank and is the fastest and most secure way to get recurring deposits into your account. Get started by completing our Direct Deposit Enrollment Form.

Balance Inquiries can be made through Personal Online Banking or Telebank Telephone Banking 24 hours a day. When funds are low, use either system to transfer funds from another to insure all transaction s are paid correctly.

Online Bill Payment is a feature of our Personal Online Banking service that allows you to schedule payments at intervals best suited to your cash flow.
