Overdraft Protection Service

Overdraft Protection allows you to link your checking account to another SunTrust deposit account, credit card or line of credit so you can transfer available funds to cover an overdraft.

With this service, you can link your checking or money market account to one of the established "protector" accounts listed below so that your money is always covered:1

Service Fees

Once you have established your Overdraft Protection Service, you will not incur non-sufficient fund fees or returned item fees if you overdraw your account and there are available funds in your protection account. The transfer fee3 is $12.50. There is a maximum of one transfer fee per day. For accounts linked to another Deposit Account (checking, savings, or money market); transfers will be the exact amount plus any applicable transfer fees.
