Overdraft Protection Privilege
If you inadvertently overdraw your account, PointBank has the option, at its sole discretion, to cover your overdrafts up to a certain amount, including fee(s) and thereby saving you the embarrassment and inconvenience of a returned or declined item, as well as the fee normally charged to you by merchants for items returned to them.
The amount of discretionary overdraft privilege extended to each customer varies based on your banking habits. Each account will be continually monitored to determine the amount of discretionary overdraft privilege to be extended when an item is presented for payment. The criteria evaluated includes, but is not limited to: age of account, deposit balance, deposit regularity, account status relating to legal or administrative order/levy, and status of loan obligations with PointBank.
If you want PointBank to pay overdrafts on ATM card and everyday debit card transactions you must opt-in for discretionary overdraft privilege. If you have not opted-in you may do so using the form below.
See Banker for complete details. The overdraft fee is $33 whether the overdraft is by check, ATM withdrawal, debit card transaction or other electronic means. You must bring your account to a positive balance within 60 days. The payment of transactions into overdraft is discretionary and the bank reserves the right not to pay. The payment of a PointBank loan payment into overdraft is not permitted.
You may also use the form below to opt out of having ATM card and debit card transactions paid.
