Don’t get stuck at the checkout counter—explore your overdraft options and learn how to avoid overdrafts.

Low balances happen to everybody; sometimes it’s nice to get a little help when you’re in a pinch. That’s why we offer overdraft protection.

Compare Our Overdraft Options

Our overdraft options protect you from declined debit card transactions, bounced checks and overdrawing your checking account at the ATM. Some services come standard with any checking account, some need you to opt in, and others require you to open a savings account or line of credit for overdraft protection. You may wish to discuss which might work best for you by going to your nearest branch or contacting us at (888) 570-0773.

An Overdraft Overview

What you can do to reduce the risk of an overdraft:

  • Keep your check register up to date. Record all your transactions, including ATM withdrawals, checks, bank fees deducted, debit card purchases, etc. Be sure to deduct each amount when you write the check or at the point of purchase so you have the most up-to-date account balance.
  • Check your bank statement monthly. Compare your statement’s withdrawal and deposit history with what you have written in your check register. When you are done, the balance in your check register should match the balance on your statement. If you notice any errors or unauthorized transactions, please report them to Liberty Bank right away.
  • Enroll in Online Banking and/or Mobile Banking. These free services allow you to monitor your account activity anytime, make payments, or move money. You can even set up email or text alerts to let you know if your balance is getting low.
  • Keep a cushion in your checking account. You may wish to always keep a small amount of extra money in your account, just in case of emergency.
  • Use direct deposit. Ask your employer about having your paycheck automatically and electronically deposited to your checking account. You can also arrange for direct deposit of any federal payments you receive, such as Social Security checks. This helps avoid delays in depositing funds to cover your transactions.
