An overdraft is when your account doesn't have enough funds to cover transactions such as checks, debit card purchases, and electronic funds transfers. Occasional overdrafts can happen. But we can help. We have a variety of solutions to help you manage your accounts.
Overdraft Protection allows you to link your Fulton Bank checking account to another eligible Fulton account such as a savings, another checking, money market account, or line of credit. If you request this option, we will transfer funds available in these accounts to help cover checks, automatic bill payments, and recurring debit card transactions. There’s a $12 Sweep Transfer Fee per day when the bank transfers money from your connected accounts to pay overdrafts.
Avoid declined transactions
Enrollment in an Overdraft Protection plan is not automatic. Connect with your local branch team to talk about your overdraft options.
OVERDRAFT ELECT™ Provides you options
Overdraft Elect is a service that allows you to determine whether you want us to authorize and pay overdrafts at our discretion. This service applies whether or not you have linked an eligible Fulton Bank account to cover overdrafts. You are automatically enrolled in Overdraft Elect Partial Coverage Election. If you choose, you can also select to opt out of Overdraft Elect entirely or opt-in to our All-In Election plan. There is a $39 Overdraft/NSF Fee per paid or returned item. You can decide what type of Overdraft Election works best for you by using one of our forms below, calling or visiting a branch.
Choose from three options:
When you choose the Partial Coverage Election, we may authorize and pay overdraft items up to your overdraft limit – except for everyday debit card and ATM transactions. Fill out our form to choose this option. Your eligible account defaults to this option unless otherwise selected.
When you choose the All-Out Election, the bank will not authorize and pay overdraft items for all your transactions including everyday debit card and ATM transactions. Fill out our form to choose this option.
When you choose the All-In Election, we may authorize and pay overdraft items up to your overdraft limit for all transactions including everyday debit card and ATM transactions. Fill out our form to choose this option.
