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.

  2. We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as a link to another account or a line of credit, which may be less costly 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 will not authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions without your consent:

  • 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 Citizens Bank & Trust pays my overdraft?

Under our standard overdraft practices:

  • We will charge you a NSF Paid Item fee of up to $34.50 each time we pay an overdraft.
  • We will not charge you a NSF Paid Item fee if your account is overdrawn by $5.00 or less on any given day.
  • If your account is overdrawn for six or more consecutive business days, we will charge an additional $2.00 for each of the consecutive business days the account remains overdrawn.
  • There is a limit of $200.00 per day on the total NSF Paid Item and NSF Returned Item fees we can charge you for overdrawing your account.
