Overdraft Protection

Link your personal checking account to a Regular Savings, PREMIER Money Market or an eligible Line of Credit. A $12 Overdraft Protection Transfer Fee will be assessed every time the bank automatically transfers the available funds. This fee does not apply to Reward Checking customers or to any manual transfer, which is completed online, in person or by calling Customer Care. To add overdraft protection to your account, speak to a personal banker.
