ATM/Debit Card Overdraft Service

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 overdraft in two different ways:

  1. We have standard overdraft practices that come with your account.
  2. We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as a line of credit attached to your checking 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
  • Recurring Debit Card transactions

We do not authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions unless you ask us to (see below):

  • ATM transactions
  • One-Time Debit Card transactions

We pay overdrafts at our discretion, which means we do not guarantee that we will 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 Flushing Bank pays my overdraft?

Under our standard overdraft practices:

  • We will charge you a fee of up to $35 each time we pay an overdraft, however, no more than three overdraft fees may be charged against the account per day.
