overdraft privilege options can help

With our busy lives, it’s easy to make mistakes such as forgetting to deposit a check, make a transfer, or deduct your last debit charge from your balance. A simple error or balance miscalculation can lead to an unexpected shortage of funds. When this happens, you have three options.

At Service 1st, we’ve got you covered with our Overdraft Privilege program. Overdraft Privilege is not a line of credit; however, if you inadvertently overdraw your account, we will have the discretion to pay the overdraft, subject to your Overdraft Privilege.

Service 1st will not pay overdrafts for ATM or everyday debit card transactions unless you have given your consent by extending coverage to the payment of these overdrafts.

Overdraft Protection services apply to all transactions and may help prevent overdrafts by automatically transferring funds to your checking account from another account or line of credit you may have at Service 1st for a fee or finance charge. Please note that overdraft lines of credit are subject to credit approval.

Overdraft Privilege allows you to overdraw your account up to the disclosed limit for a fee in order to pay a transaction. Even if you have overdraft protection, Overdraft Privilege is still available as secondary coverage, if the other protection source is exhausted.
