WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OVERDRAFTS
AND OVERDRAFT FEES
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:
- We have standard overdraft practices that come with your account.
- We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as a link to another account or a line of credit, which may be less expensive than our standard overdraft practices. To learn more, ask us about these plans.
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.
- ATM transactions.
- Everyday debit card transactions.
If we do not authorize and pay an overdraft, your transaction will be declined.
What fees will I be charged if Hastings City Bank pays my overdraft?
Under our standard overdraft practices:
- We will charge you a NSF Paid Item fee of up to $30 each time we pay an overdraft.
- We will not charge you a fee if your account is overdrawn by less than $10.
- If your account is overdrawn for 5 or more consecutive business days, we will charge an additional $15 for every 5 business days you are overdrawn.
- There is a limit of $100 (increasing to $150 effective 8/1/13) per day on the total fees we can charge you for overdrawing your account.
