Overdraft Protection and Your Centennial Bank Check and Cash Card… What you need to know.
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 personal line of credit, which may be less expensive than our standard overdraft practices. Ask your banker today for more details.
More about standard overdraft practices that come with your Centennial Bank account
1. What are the standard overdraft practices that come with my account?
We may authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions:
- Checks and other transactions made using your checking account
- ACH transactions
- Automatic bill payments
We will not authorize and pay overdrafts on your everyday ATM and debit card transactions, unless you ask us to.
In general, please know Centennial Bank pays overdrafts of any kind 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 or your check returned.
2. What fees will I be charged if Centennial Bank does pay my overdraft?
Under our standard overdraft practices:
- We will charge you a fee of $25.00 each time we pay an overdraft.
- There is a maximum daily fee limit of $100.00 we can charge you for overdrawing your account.
