  • There are two options for Overdraft protection for your Farm Bureau Bank deposit account. One is through your Money Market Account [MMA] and the other is through your Farm Bureau Bank credit card account.
  • There is no service fee for having overdraft protection. If you do overdraw your account and you have selected your credit card as overdraft protection, we will transfer in increments of $100.00 to your checking account to cover any incoming items. There will be a cash advance fee charged to your credit card if it is utilized for overdraft protection. This will enable you to avoid any overdraft fees for incoming items covered by your Farm Bureau Bank credit card up to your credit limit.
  • If you set up your MMA for overdraft protection, the six (6) withdrawals a month restriction still applies. We transfer from your MMA only the amount required to cover your negative account balance.
  • You may apply for overdraft protection using secure messaging (within online banking), by email, or by phone.
  • You may also apply on a new account application.
