Overdraft Protection Options****
Save yourself from overdraft fees with cPort's overdraft protection options. When a check or debit is presented for payment and there are not adequate funds in your account, the following options are available to cover the necessary funds:
- Overdraft Protection from your Savings Account: Automatically makes a transfer from your savings to your checking to cover an insufficient funds item.
- Overdraft Line of Credit***: A revolving line of credit that automatically advances a loan to you so your insufficient funds item clears.
Choose the option(s) of overdraft protection and customize the order of payment that best fits your needs. Choose to overdraft to either your Overdraft Line of Credit first then to your savings account, or savings account first then your Overdraft Line of Credit. It's up to you!
