What is Overdraft Privilege?
A non-contractual courtesy that’s included with your checking account to cover accidental overdrafts. Overdraft Privilege saves the embarrassment of returned checks and saves you from the nonsufficient funds fee merchants may charge. You’ll also avoid potential late charges on important bills!
With your consent, we can also cover your debit and ATM transactions! Be proactive, and opt-in today to extend the courtesy you’re already given!
Another way to PROTECT your account(s)
You may also sign up for Overdraft Protection which allows you to transfer funds from a previously designated account to cover insufficient items. $10.00 fee per transfer. To learn more, ask us about this service.
How does NexTier Bank cover overdrafts?
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:
- We have standard overdraft practices that come with your account.
- We also offer overdraft protection 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.
Our Standard Overdraft Practices
This notice explains our standard overdraft practices included with your account.
We do authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions.

- Automatic Bill Payments
We do not authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions without your consent. Select the appropriate option on the form below.

If we do not authorize and pay an overdraft, your transaction will be declined.
