Overdraft Protection FAQ
Why Did I Get Charged An Overdraft Fee?
An Overdraft Service is defined as a service under which a financial institution assesses a fee or charge on a consumer’s account held by the institution for paying a transaction when the consumer has insufficient or unavailable funds in the account.
For example, if you have $50.00 in your account and you electronically pay your $40 phone bill, your balance is now $10. If you use your debit card to make a purchase of $15 you could overdraw your account if the bank allows this to be processed.
This would cause an overdraft fee equaling the amount you are overdrawn plus Bank of Cherokee County’s overdraft fees. This amount will be deducted at the time of your next deposit.
When would BOCC reverse an Overdraft Fee?
An overdraft fee can be reversed if the fee was incurred while an account had a positive balance.
When will I be charged a fee for an Overdraft?
If you overdraw your account, your account will be charged an Overdraft Fee at our end of day processing.
When does the Overdraft Fee need to be paid?
Overdraft fees must be paid within 30 days.
What happens if I do not pay the fee?
If your account falls behind, a Bank of Cherokee Country representative will contact you with Overdraft alternatives.
