How to Limit Fees If Exceeding Your Available Balance

You don’t really care what it’s called. You just want something to cover a check or other debit from your account when you’re at $0 so you can:

  • Avoid a fee on the other end
  • Not impact your good credit
  • Minimize the fees you pay on our end

You can link your Savings Account or a Personal Line of Credit to your Checking Account. Below is a chart that compares the two options:

Overdraft Protection Options

Overdraft Protection Options
Feature Savings Account Personal Line of Credit
Fee Yes No
Interest Charge No Yes
Transfer Limits Yes No
Credit Application No Yes
Earns Dividends Yes No
Can Build Credit No Yes

Definition: Your Available Balance is the amount of money in your account, minus any holds (such as outstanding Debit Card authorizations) and deposits that aren’t yet available due to our Funds Availability Policy.

The Fine Print

You’ll find the fees listed on our Fee Schedule. You’ll find Interest & Dividend Rates in our Truth in Savings disclosure. Savings Accounts are limited to a maximum of 6 transfers per month. (It’s Regulation D by the US Government that sets the limit). Also, learn more about Courtesy Pay as an option too.
