What you need to know about overdraft fees.
This notice explains our standard overdraft practices. An overdraft occurs when you do not have enough money in your account to cover a transaction, but the bank pays it anyway. Currently, we can cover your overdraft 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, please ask us about these plans.
What are the standard overdraft practices that come with my account?
We do authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions:
- Checks and other transactions made using your checking account number
- Automatic bill payments and/or recurring debit card transactions
We pay overdrafts at our discretion, which means we do not guarantee that we will always authorize and pay any type of transaction. If we do not authorize and pay an overdraft, your transaction will be declined.
What fees will be charged if Popular pays my overdraft?
Under our standard overdraft practices:
- We will charge you up to $34 each time that we pay an overdraft.
- Also, if your account is overdrawn for 7 or more consecutive business days, we will charge an additional $5 per day.
- We have a daily limit for charging up to five items. If you have more than five items overdraw your account in a single day, only the first five will be assessed a fee.
- We will not charge you a fee if your account is overdrawn by $5 or less.
IMPORTANT: We will not authorize and pay overdrafts for the following type of transactions unless you ask us to:
- ATM and everyday debit card transactions
