** Consumers and businesses must apply for Overdraft Protection and are subject to approval. There is a $100 minimum advance amount. The maximum amount of credit varies between $300 and $5,000 based on individual credit considerations. The minimum payment is 3% of the current balance or $10 whichever is greater, and is automatically deducted from the customer’s checking account ten days after their statement date unless a manual payment is made. 18% annual percentage rate. $7 annual fee.

*** Customers are charged our paid item Overdraft fee of $35 for each overdrawn item created by check, in-person withdrawals or other electronic means paid under the limit. An insufficient balance can result from several events, such as (1) the payment of checks, electronic funds transfers or other withdrawal requests; (2) payments authorized by the customer; (3) the return of unpaid items deposited by a customer; (4) bank service charges; or (5) the deposit of items which, according to the bank’s Funds Availability Policy, are treated as not yet available or finally paid.

Customers should make every attempt to bring their account to a positive end-of-day balance as soon as possible, and must do so within 30 calendar days. First Reliance Bank is not obligated to pay any item presented for payment if the customer’s account does not contain sufficient funds. First Reliance may refuse to pay an overdraft item at any time even though we may have previously paid overdrafts for the customer subject to approval.
