Worried about overdraft fees?
Occasionally, we understand that mistakes can be made when balancing your checkbook. That’s why we offer Savings Overdraft Protection. It’s an easy and convenient way to give you peace of mind.
Simply link your West Bank Savings or Money Market account to your checking account and protect yourself from nonsufficient funds, merchant return fees and the potential embarrassment of having a payment declined.

There is no charge to set up Savings Overdraft Protection. You simply pay a $5 transfer fee when a transfer is made. This saves you money as it is significantly less than incurring an Overdraft Fee, Returned Item Fee and/or a Merchant Return Fee.

*Each automatic transfer is processed in $100 increments regardless of the amount of the overdrawn item. If the savings or money market account balance is less than the amount needed to cover the full transfer, then the balance in the account will be transferred and you may be charged an overdraft fee, as well as the transfer fee. The transferred amount from your savings or money market account includes the transfer fee. Transfers initiated by Savings Overdraft Protection service are included in the limit of six (6) transfers per statement cycle for savings and money market accounts. Please see the Deposit Account Agreement for more information on Transaction Limitations.
