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 apply standard overdraft practices, at our discretion, under which we may allow your account to carry a temporary negative balance. If we cover an overdraft by applying our standard overdraft practices, we will charge a fee for each overdraft that drops your account balance below zero.
2. We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as a link to a savings account, which may be less expensive than our standard overdraft practices. To learn more, ask us about these plans.

If you do nothing, we will decline debit card purchases and ATM transactions if they exceed the available balance in your account. You can change your mind, however, and OPT-IN at any time, which will allow us to charge a fee for authorizing overdraft transactions.
