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 two different 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, Ready Reserve Line of Credit or Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) 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):
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 Georgia Bank & Trust pays my overdraft?
Under our standard overdraft practices:
We will charge you a fee of up to $33 each time we pay an overdraft.
There is no limit on the total fees we can charge you for overdrawing your account.
