Overdraft Fee Forgiven – How Does It Work?
- The Overdraft Fee Forgiven period starts the first day the Available Balance becomes negative and an Overdraft Paid Fee(s) was charged.
- U.S. Bank will review the account for a fee waiver at 11 p.m. ET on the business day the Overdraft Paid Fee(s) was charged.
- If the Available Balance (excluding the Overdraft Paid Fee(s) and including immediate and same day deposits), is $0 or more at 11 p.m. ET the Overdraft Paid Fee(s) charged will be waived.
Actions to Help Waive Overdraft Fees
- Monitor your account – Customers with account(s) in the Overdraft Fee Forgiven period will see an alert after they log into U.S. Bank Mobile App or Online Banking. The alert will direct them to the Overdraft Fee Forgiven dashboard, which provides step-by-step instructions on how to get the charged Overdraft Paid Fee(s) waived.
- Set up alerts – Customers who set up the Overdraft Fee Forgiven alerts will receive an email (and/or a text message or push notification) in the morning the day their Overdraft Fee Forgiven period starts.
- Stay in the know – Review your account frequently via online banking or the mobile app, as any additional transactions that further overdraw the account will need to be covered by the deposit(s).
