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 paid 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 deposit account or a line-of-credit loan, which may be a less expensive option 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:
  • Check 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 that we do not guarantee that we will always authorize and pay any type of transaction that results in an overdraft.
If we do not authorize and pay an overdraft, your transactions will be declined.

What fees will be charged if Montgomery Bank pays my overdraft?

Under our standard overdraft practices, any transaction that results in an overdraft of $10.01 or more, will result in a charge of up to $33 per item. There is a limit of 5 items per account per day on which fees will be charged for overdraft.
