Overdraft Services

What You Need to Know about Overdrafts and Overdraft Fees

 An overdraft occurs when you do not have enough money in your account to cover a transaction, but we pay it anyway.  We can cover your overdrafts in two different ways:

  1. We have standard overdraft practices that come with your account.
  2. We also offer overdraft transfer plans, such as a link to a savings account, which may be less expensive than our standard overdraft practices.  To learn more, ask us about these plans.

 This notice explains our standard overdraft practices.

Overdraft Protection

Overdraft Protection consists of two products offered by CNB that protect you during those unexpected times when your checking account balance drops below zero.  CNB offers three convenient services; Overdraft Transfer, Overdraft Protection Line of Credit and Overdraft Privilege. 

Overdraft Transfer

Overdraft Transfer is a prearranged transfer from another CNB account, checking or savings account. Funds can be transferred in predetermined increments to cover a deficit balance in your checking account. Transfers are done in $10.00 increments and there is a charge of $10.00 per transfer.

Overdraft Privilege

Overdraft Privilege allows you to overdraw eligible accounts up to a disclosed limit for a fee to pay a transaction.  If you have Overdraft Protection, Overdraft Privilege is still available as secondary coverage if the other protection source is exhausted. There is a $30.00 NSF DDA Paid fee per item. * Daily fees may apply.

    • Checks and other transactions made using your checking account number

    • ATM transactions

What Else You Should Know

  • A link to another account or line of credit is a less expensive option than an overdraft. A single larger overdraft will result in just one fee, as opposed to multiple smaller overdrafts. Good account management is the best way to avoid overdrafts. Use our mobile banking, Online Banking, and Infoline telephone banking services to keep track of your balance. For additional financial education resources, please visit mymoney.gov.
  • The $30.00 NSF DDA Paid Fee that is charged if you overdraw your account more than $5.00 is the same fee amount that is charged if an item is returned as unpaid. If your consumer account is overdrawn by $5.00 or less, the NSF DDA Paid Fee is $0.00. If multiple items overdraw your account on the same day, each item will be assessed an appropriate NSF DDA Paid Fee or a NSF DDA Return Fee of $30. All fees and charges will be included as part of the Overdraft Privilege limit amount. Your account may become overdrawn in excess of the Overdraft Privilege limit amount as a result of a fee.
  • If an item is returned because the available balance in your account is not sufficient to cover the item and the item is presented for payment again, CNB Bank & Trust will charge an NSF DDA Return Fee each time it returns the item because it exceeds the available balance in your account.
