Overdraft Protection. Because oops, it happens.
It happens to the best of us. A forgotten automatic withdrawal, a delayed deposit – and suddenly, your balance is in the negative. Protect your account with an Overdraft Sweep or an Overdraft Protection Line of Credit.
Link your checking account with a Citizens Bank savings or money market account, and funds will automatically transfer to cover a negative balance in your checking account.
Overdraft Protection Line of Credit
Apply for this specialized line of credit that advances funds directly to your checking account and allows you to pay it back later.
