Does Overdrafting Affect your Credit Score
Have you ever overdrafted and wondered if it would hurt your credit score? What is the difference between overdraft protection and overdraft coverage? Get the answers to these overdraft questions.
What is Overdraft Service?
The optional Overdraft Service1 is Porte’s overdraft protection feature. Once you enroll and meet the eligibility requirements, you will be charged $20.00 for each transaction that overdraws your account by more than $10.00, up to a maximum of five (5) fees per calendar month. To avoid that fee, you have twenty-four (24) hours from the time of the first transaction that creates the overdraft to bring your Account back to a zero ($0.00) or a positive balance.

How do I get the optional Overdraft Service with Porte?
You may enroll in the Overdraft Service under Account Info in the user profile. You must receive direct deposits totaling at least $400.00 to your Account within thirty-five (35) days of your enrollment in the Service (direct deposits received prior to enrollment count towards this total). You must have a positive Available Balance in your Account at the time we activate the Service on your Account. Once you have met all eligibility requirements, your participation in the Service will be activated within twenty-four (24) hours. Once the Service is activated on your Account, you MUST continue to receive direct deposits totaling at least $200.00 to your Account every thirty (30) days or we will deactivate your participation in the Service.
Do I have to pay for Overdraft Service?
There is no fee to enroll in the optional Overdraft Service. However, you may incur fees when you use the service. Once you overdraft, if you bring your account back to a positive balance within 24 hours, no fee is charged. After 24 hours, you’re charged a $20 fee per transaction that overdrafts your account by more than $10.
How long do I have to pay back the amount I overdraft without a fee?
You have 24 hours from the time of your transaction to repay the funds you overdraft. Let’s say you overdraft your account at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, then you have until 2:00 p.m. on Friday to add the funds into your account.
You can transfer money from your Savings Account, add cash at one of our partner locations5, receive funds through Direct Deposit, use mobile check capture, or transfer money from a debit card6 to bring your account balance positive.
What type of purchases can I make?
You can only use optional Overdraft Service when making debit purchases and ATM withdrawals. The Overdraft Service may not be used for ACH debit transactions or reoccurring debit transactions.
