Overdraft Protection


Students have a lot going on – classes, studying, papers to write, and of course, having a social life on top of it all. So yes, we realize how easy it can be to forget about some of the little things – such as keeping track of your day-to-day finances. (How much did you spend at the bookstore? For snacks between classes? Or late-night coffee?) It all adds up quickly, and the last thing you want is a surprise at the checkout line when your card is declined due to lack of funds in your account.

With Automated Overdraft Protection, you can avoid embarrassing surprises if you do happen to lose track of what you've spent. And it's easy to set up. You just link your student checking account to another account, such as a savings account, money market account or a parent's checking account. Funds are transferred from that linked account when necessary, to prevent your checking account from being overdrawn - and to prevent that nasty "declined" at the cash register. Note: A $2 fee applies to each transfer.

Sign up for Automated Overdraft Protection by visiting a local Burke & Herbert Bank branch, or call us at 703-684-1655 to learn more.
