  • Show What is an Overdraft Item fee?

    An Overdraft Item fee is charged when you write a check or make a withdrawal for an amount that exceeds the balance in your checking or savings account and Bank of America pays the overdraft item anyway.

    When we determine that your account is overdrawn after we finish processing for the day, and we pay for the transaction or transactions, we may charge an Overdraft Item Fee of $35.00 per item.

    You are charged for no more than 4 Overdraft Item and Return Item Fees per day.

    We do not charge you an Overdraft item fee on an everyday non-recurring debit transaction. We also do not charge an Overdraft item fee on a ATM transaction unless you agreed to our overdraft practices for that particular ATM transaction.

    Although Bank of America is not obligated to pay an item if your account is overdrawn, the bank may pay these items as a courtesy to you. If you are charged an Overdraft Item fee, you can view the details in your Online Banking transaction record. View our checking accounts for details.

This fee is in addition to any applicable fees for overdraft items, insufficient funds and returned items. View our checking accounts for details.

    If an everyday non-recurring debit transaction or an ATM transaction, for which you did not agree to our overdraft practices, is the transaction that causes your account to become overdrawn, we do not start the 5-business day period. We do start the 5-business day period if another type of transaction either causes or increases the overdraft in your account.
