Overdraft Protection guards a customer against returned checks and overdraft charges. Citizens offers two different ways for our customers to protect themselves.
- The funds will be advanced from a savings or another deposit account in $100.00 increments.
- A line of credit can be established called “Goldline” and be linked to a checking account and swept in $250.00 increments.
PROTECTION FROM TRANSFER
When a customer selects Overdraft Protection from Transfer, their overdrafts will be covered by transferring funds from their savings account or another deposit account into the primary checking account in $100.00 increments. The fee is $5.00 per transfer. If the secondary account has less than $100.00 the funds will not be transferred. A notice will be sent when a transfer is made and will also appear on the monthly statement.
PROTECTION FROM GOLDLINE
Goldline is a separate line of credit that can be linked to a customer’s checking account. Funds can be swept in $250.00 increments into a checking account to cover overdrafts. The annual fee is $20.00 and the interest rate is indexed to New York Prime. The customer pays interest only on the amount transferred and the amount can be repaid monthly or quarterly. (Line of credit is subject to credit approval.)
