Overdraft Protection and Coverlines

In today’s fast-paced business environment it’s easy to lose sight of fast clearing checks and electronic transactions.  We have options that can help prevent the inconvenience of insufficient funds.

Overdraft protection transfers

Overdraft protection links your checking account to one of your other TowneBank deposit accounts. In the event of an overdraft, available funds will automatically be transferred from the linked account to the covered account.  Nominal overdraft protection transfer fees apply. 

There is no cost to link accounts, and you will only incur a fee if you use the protection.


Coverlines

Link your checking account to a pre-approved line of credit. In the event of an overdraft, funds will be transferred from your line of credit to the overdrawn  account. 
Subject to credit approval; applicable interest rates apply.
