Overdraft Privilege Request

Avoid inconvenience and embarrassment due to declined ATM and Debit transactions by saying YES to overdraft privilege.

The US Government has changed the regulations regarding standard overdraft privilege for your ATM and Debit Cards. We can no longer automatically authorize payment for ATM and everyday debit card transactions for which you do not have sufficient funds in your account.

You do have a choice. If you prefer that we process ATM and everyday debit card transactions for your convenience, say “Yes” to overdraft privilege.

Simply complete the following three steps to request overdraft privilege:

What You Need to Know about Overdrafts 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:

  1. We have standard overdraft practices that come with your account. See below for details.
  2. We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as a link to a savings account or an overdraft line of credit, which may be less expensive than our standard overdraft practices. To learn more, ask us about these plans.

This notice explains our standard overdraft practices.

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

We do not authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions unless you ask us to (see below):

  • ATM transactions
  • Everyday debit card transactions

We pay overdrafts 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.

What fees will I be charged if First State Bank pays my overdrafts?

Under our standard overdraft practices:

  • We will charge you a fee of up to $34 each time we pay an overdraft. The cost will be based upon the dollar amount of the item that will cause the account to be overdrawn.
    We will charge you a $10 fee for each overdraft item paid that is less than or equal to $20.
    We will charge you a $34 fee for each overdraft item paid that is greater than $20.
    No overdraft fee will be charged if your total overdrawn balance is less than or equal to $5.
  • Also, if your account is overdrawn for 5 or more consecutive business days, we will charge an additional $7 per day.
  • There is a limit of five overdraft fees per day that we will charge you when you overdraw your account.
