    2 The Overdraft Coverage Program is a discretionary service. Columbia Bank is under no obligation to pay items when your account has non-sufficient funds (NSF), even if previous NSF transactions were paid. Columbia Bank reserves the right to require you to pay an overdraft immediately. Columbia Bank typically does not pay overdrafts if your account is not in good standing or you are not making regular deposits.

A $5 Continuous Overdraft Charge will be charged on the first business day after the account is both: (1) overdrawn for five business days and (2) overdrawn by more than $10. The fee will continue to be charged on each business day thereafter until the account is no longer overdrawn by more than $10 or is charged off and closed. Total Continuous Overdraft Charges in a single overdraft period are limited to $80. Overdrafts by bank service charges or fees can cause Continuous Overdraft Charges.
