Items paid under Bounce Protection Overdraft Privilege discretionary overdraft service are subject to an OD Bounce Paid Item(s) Fee of $33 per item overdrawn (with a maximum daily limit of $99), which may be charged for overdrafts created by check, in-person withdrawal, an automatic payment (ACH) transaction, automatic bill payment, a recurring debit card payment, or other electronic transaction. Also, if you have requested us to do so, we may authorize and cover ATM transfers or withdrawals and everyday debit card transactions. Whether an overdraft will be paid is discretionary and we reserve the right not to pay. For example, we typically do not pay overdrafts if your account is not in good standing or you are not making regular deposits or you have too many overdrafts. You should make every attempt to bring your account to a positive balance as soon as possible, and must do so within 30 days. There is no daily limit for NSF Returned Item(s) Fees for overdraft items returned unpaid or OD Paid Item(s) Fees for overdraft items paid outside of Bounce Protection. No fees are charged for items that overdraw the account $10.00 or less.
