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 the following ways: 

  • We have standard overdraft practices that come with your account.
  • We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as a link to a savings account, which may be less expensive 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 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 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 Wayne County Bank pays my overdraft?

Under our standard overdraft practices:

  • We will charge you a fee of up to $25 each time we pay an overdraft.
  • There is a $100.00 limit on the total fees we may charge you for overdrawing your account per business day.
  • If your overdraft items are no more than $25.00 in any business day, there will not be an overdraft fee assessed. 

What if I want Wayne County Bank to authorize and pay overdrafts on my ATM and everyday debit card transactions?
