Overdraft Privilege Service

 Overdraft consideration exclusively for eligible First Westroads Bank checking account customers

 Have you ever...

  • Made a mistake in your checkbook?
  • Had a transaction denied or turned down at checkout?
  • Had the embarrassment and expense of a returned check?
  • Had to "guess" at what transactions a joint owner has made?


Relax... You Deserve Consideration!

Rather than automatically returning unpaid any insufficient items, we will consider, without obligation on our part, payment of your reasonable overdrafts.


Applies to:

*Eligible Account Types

  • Safe Checking
  • Regular Checking
  • Now and Safe Now Checking
  • Business Checking, including Sole Proprietor, Commercial Checking, and Commercial Analysis Checking
*Not all of these accounts are eligible and some restrictions apply to eligible accounts

Overdraft Privilege Can Mean...

  • You may avoid high charges from merchants for returned checks
  • You may avoid the embarrassment and inconvenience of denied purchases and dishonored checks
  • Payment of overdrafts up to $800 ($1,500 on business checking accounts) will normally be considered.  These limits include our customary fees set out in our policy.  Our fees will be added to any outstanding overdrafts you may have and will be applied against your Overdraft Privilege limit.
  • We will charge our normal non-sufficient funds or overdraft charges, as set forth in our fee schedule, for each item that would create an overdraft on your account 

Of course we can't promise to pay every overdraft, not all accounts are eligible, and some restrictions do apply.  See our Overdraft Privilege Policy for further details.
