Are You Covered?

Little Boy in Rain



Every now and then all of us run into a situation when the money we are spending at a given moment is more than we have available.  At Macatawa Bank we understand that mistakes happen.  For those instances, we offer overdraft protection options to save you from the embarrassment, additional merchant fees or other problems that might result from being overdrawn on your checking account.

Balance Protection

Today we can access our money anytime and anywhere through electronic payment options.  Balance Protection links your Macatawa Bank personal checking account to another Macatawa Bank account – such as a personal savings, money market or another checking account   Balance Protection automatically transfers available funds to cover purchases and prevent declined transactions if you do not have enough money in your personal checking account.

Overdraft Privilege

It can happen to anyone – bouncing a check can be not only embarrassing, but can be a big hassle as well. Overdraft Privilege is an easy way to avoid that momentary insufficient balance. It is a discretionary service designed to help prevent your insufficient funds items from being returned or declined. With Overdraft Privilege, we have the discretion to cover your overdrafts caused by checks, ACH debit transactions, in-person withdrawals or online banking transactions up to your Overdraft Privilege limit (including fees) if you inadvertently overdraw your account. When your items are paid, it can save you the embarrassment and inconvenience of a returned check or declined transaction and any additional fees normally charged by merchants for items returned to them.

Standard Coverage

Standard Overdraft Privilege covers checks and other types of debit transactions drawn against your checking account when they are denied due to non-sufficient funds.

Extended Coverage

Overdraft Privilege is not only available for checks and ACH debit transactions, but under your authorization, it also may be extended to cover your everyday Debit Card & ATM  transactions.

To authorize us to extend your Overdraft Privilege to pay overdrafts on everyday Debit Card  transactions simply call 877.820.2265 or stop by the branch location nearest you.

No Coverage

You can remove the discretionary Overdraft Privilege coverage entirely by contacting us at any time. This means if your checks or ACH debit transactions exceed the available balance in your account, they will be returned to the payee and you will be charged an overdraft fee in addition to whatever fees the merchant may charge you for items returned for insufficient funds. If you try to use your ATM or Debit Card and the amount of the transaction is more than your available balance, your transaction will be declined at the point of sale.
