What is the No Bounce Privilege?

No Bounce Privilege is a privilege extended to customers who qualify for an overdraft limit of $500 for Premier Checking, Income Plus Checking, Cloud 9 Travel Checking, Premier Interest Checking, Workplace Checking, Freedom, and E-Checking account customers.

Customers who sometimes run a little short on money have the ability to access this privilege by simply writing a check beyond their balance in their account. As long as the amount does not exceed the overdraft privilege amount, the checks will be paid, and retailers will not receive the checks back. This means that you, the customer, will have the peace of mind knowing that you will not be embarrassed or charged the extra returned check fee from the retailer.

If this overdraft privilege is accessed, the only charge you would receive would be the regular fee for overdrawing your account by us. But, the check is guaranteed to be paid up to the limit assigned to your account.

Question 6 How much do I have left on my Overdraft Privilege?

Answer: The bank does not offer Automatic Overdraft Privilege (or No Bounce Privilege) above the $500. If you need more than $500, please see one of the bank's lenders.

Question 8 I though I had No Bounce Privilege. Why did you return my checks?

Answer: Example: our records indicate that your Checking account is overdrawn $450 and that you only had $50 remaining of your No Bounce Privilege. The item of $100 presented was larger than the remaining No Bounce Privilege line of $50, and was, therefore, returned.
