What You Need to Know about Overdrafts and Overdraft Fees

An overdraft occurs when you do not have enough money in your account to cover a transaction,
but we pay it anyway. We can cover your overdrafts in two different ways:

  1. We have standard overdraft practices that come with your account.
  2. We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as a link to a savings account
    or an overdraft line of credit, which may be less expensive than our standard
    overdraft practices. To learn more, ask us about these plans.

This notice explains our standard overdraft practices.

What are the standard overdraft practices that come with my account?

We do authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions:

  • Checks and other transactions made using your checking account number
  • Automatic bill payments

Until August 15, 2010, we will authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions:

  • ATM transactions
  • Everyday debit card transactions (Point of Sale transactions)

Beginning August 15, 2010, we will not authorize and pay overdrafts for these types of transactions unless you ask us to. (See Below)

We pay overdrafts at our discretion, which means we do not guarantee that we will always authorize and pay any type of transaction.

If we do not authorize and pay an overdraft, your transaction will be declined.

What fees will I be charged if ProBank pays my overdraft?

Under our standard overdraft practices:

  • We will charge you a fee of up to $30 each time we pay an overdraft.
  • There is no limit on the total fees we can charge you for overdrawing your account.

What if I want ProBank to authorize and pay overdrafts on my ATM an everyday debit card transactions beginning August 15, 2010?
