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 an overdraft transfer from another account or a pre-approved overdraft line of credit, which may be less expensive than our standard overdraft practices. To learn more, ask us about these plans. 

This notices explains our standard overdraft practices.


What are the standard overdraft practices that come with my account? (Basic Coverage) 

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

We do not authorize and pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions unless you ask us to (see below):

  • ATM transactions
  • Everyday 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 I be charged if Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank pays my overdraft? 

Under our standard overdraft practices:

  • We will charge you a fee of up to $30 each time we pay an overdraft.
  • There is a maximum of $150 in total fees we can charge you for overdrawing your account per day.

  • Transactions authorized against what appears to be an insufficient balance that post against an insufficient balance will be charged a fee.
