How does Overdraft or Return Item Forgiveness work? Will the Overdraft or Return Item Fee automatically be reversed?

How quickly will you forgive the Overdraft or Return Item fee?
We will be able to confirm and issue the forgiveness the same business day - automatically.
Will I be charged an Overdraft Item fee if my account is overdrawn?
Our Overdraft Item Fee is $33 per item (max 4 per day). We will not charge this fee if 1) your balance is overdrawn by $20 or less or 2) the transaction overdrawing your account is $20 or less.
