Update: Overdraft/ Uncollected Fees on Personal Checking

We're committed to supporting your financial wellness — that's why we're excited to share positive changes to reduce or eliminate certain fees on personal checking accounts.

Starting August 1, First National Bank LI is making the following changes:

$50 OD/UNC Grace Limit— a newly established $50 grace limit on overdraft charges. This means no fees will be assessed if you overdraw your account by $50 or less.

Reducing OD/UNC Fee from $38 to $15 — overdraft fees will be lowered from $38 to $15 when the bank covers a payment, resulting in an overdraft on your account. We will only charge for one item per day.

Eliminating Remaining OD/UNC Fee — no longer charging a $10 per day fee when an account remains overdrawn.

Eliminating OD/UNC fees on Returned Items — no overdraft fee if we declined or returned an item unpaid when there weren't enough funds in the account.

Eliminating Transfer Fee from OD Line of Credit — no longer charging a fee for overdraft use of Credit Lines for paid items. Interest still applies on credit line charges.

Automatic Overdraft Transfer Functionality — introducing new functionality linking accounts for automatic transfers to cover overdrafts.
