|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.

You may choose to participate in this plan if you meet the qualifications. To learn more, ask us about this plan.
- We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as a link to a savings account, which may be less expensive than
our standard plan. To learn more, ask us about this plan.
