Overdraft Line of Credit
When your checking account does not have enough available funds to cover an item presented for payment, a transfer is made from your overdraft protection line into your checking account to cover the amount of the item. (Available upon approved application.)
Automatic Transfer Services
Bristol County Savings Bank’s automatic transfer service transfers funds from your statement account to your checking account to help you avoid overdrafts or meet a minimum balance requirement.
If you feel like you need a minimum balance in your checking account, just tell us and we can establish a sweep from another Bristol County Savings Bank account to ensure your primary checking account has your desired minimum balance. If you prefer to sweep excess primary checking account funds out to a savings or money market account you can automate that process as well.
Quick and secure direct deposit gives you quick access to your funds. No need to go to a bank to make a deposit. We accept direct deposits of paychecks, pension, social security payments, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
For Direct Deposit payroll, complete a Direct Deposit Form and present it to your human resources department to assist in the set up process. This form can be used to establish direct deposit or to change the account that your payroll is directly deposited into.
