Overdraft Protection Guidelines

  1. Overdraft Protection creates a relationship between a checking account and a source savings account, or between a checking account and a source checking account or money market checking account. This relationship is recognized when an overdraft situation occurs.
  2. Each transfer is an increment of $50.00.
  3. A $5.00 charge is assessed for each item which clears the account in an overdraft situation. An initial registration fee of $15.00 must be paid to register for Overdraft Protection. A $15.00 annual fee will be assessed thereafter. The initial and annual fees are waived for customers using RoundUp Checking and Savings Accounts. Security Savings Bank reserves the right to change these fees without prior notice.
  4. If the source account does not have sufficient funds to cover the overdraft, standard overdraft fees will be charged against the checking account. Please contact Security Savings for current overdraft fees.
  5. A notice will be sent when your checking account requires an overdraft protection transfer. The notice will detail the amount transferred and the fee(s).
  6. A minimum of $200.00 should remain in your Overdraft Protection source account at all times.
  7. By enrolling in overdraft protection services, you “opt in” to participate in overdraft protection services for debit card purchases and ATM withdrawals. Any purchase made with your debit card or any withdrawal requested at an ATM which exceeds the balance of your account will be approved based on funds being available in your overdraft protection account. When necessary, a transfer will be made from the overdraft protection account to fund the debit card purchase and/or ATM withdrawal, and the overdraft protection transfer fee may apply.
