» Overdraft Protection

Overdraft protections provide a "safety net" to help cover an unexpected expense or an accidental overdraft. First Columbia Bank offers monitoring services to help you avoid overdraft fees:

- Online, Mobile and Telephone banking gives you 24/7 access to your accounts, so you can keep track of your account balances and make transfers any time and from anywhere.

- Email Alerts (Q-Cards) allow you to receive an email alert when there is a low balance on your account.

Should you accidentally overdraw your account, we offer a number of overdraft plans:

  1. Most checking accounts include a Courtesy Overdraft Privilege for checks, ACHs (Automated Clearing House) and bill pay items. If you would like overdraft protection extended to ATM or everyday debit card transactions, an authorization form is required.
  2. We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as a transfer from a checking or savings account* ($5 fee per transfer)
  3. Keycash line of credit (upon credit approval) can give you  access to cash when the need arises.

Courtesy Overdraft Privilege Disclosure

The Courtesy Overdraft Program is not a contract or obligation of the bank to pay overdrafts created by withdrawals made by check, in-person, ATM, or other electronic means when insufficient funds exist in an account, but rather a customer service which allows customers to overdraw an account. This service remains discretionary. Any items presented that overdraw the account may be returned unpaid with the applicable non-sufficient fund fee of $30 charged to the account for each item. The amount of any overdrafts, including our fees that you owe us, shall be due and payable immediately.

*Transfers made from savings and money market accounts are limited to six per statement cycle per federal regulations.
