Important Information for Our Clients
Be on the lookout for ATM skimming. Skimming occurs when criminals attach electronic devices to the card slots of ATMs to capture card numbers and personal identification numbers (PINs).
At Kearny Bank, we strongly encourage our ATM cardholders to periodically change their PINs to protect against fraudulent use of captured card numbers and PINs. You can easily change your PIN by calling 800-992-3808 at any time, day or night.
Overdraft Protection Options
Anyone can make a mistake. With Kearny Bank’s automatic transfer program you'll avoid the embarrassment of bounced checks and associated overdraft fees. Link a Kearny Bank savings account to your checking account and funds are automatically withdrawn from your savings account in the event you are overdrawn. There is no fee unless a transfer occurs.
Line of Credit
You can also protect yourself from insufficient funds fees by applying for a line of credit and linking it to your checking account. If your checking account is ever overdrawn, the line of credit will automatically kick in to cover any checks. Interest is not charged until this convenient feature is used.
Courtesy Pay is a discretionary service we offer to cover your overdrafts. Based on account history and past performance, we may honor the payment of automated clearing house (ACH) debits and checks responsible for causing an overdrawn account balance.
Other considerations include:
- Age of account
- Other account balances
- Regularity of deposits
- Previous overdraft activity
- Status of any legal or administrative order or levy
- Status of loan obligations to Kearny Bank
We may charge a $36 fee each time the same paper or electronic item is submitted or resubmitted for payment; therefore, you may be assessed more than one fee as a result of the same item being presented for payment more than once against non-sufficient or unavailable funds. If the overdraft remains unpaid after the 5th business day, a $7 fee will be charged each business day.
The amount of any overdrafts, including our fees, are due and payable immediately. We retain full discretion to refuse to pay any overdraft for any reason. Our Courtesy Pay policy is to pay items according to dollar amount, starting with the smallest (low to high). Overdrafts will be paid for the following types of transactions:
- Inclearing checks
- ACH or recurring transactions made using your checking account number, like health club dues, insurance premiums, etc.
Courtesy Pay may be extended to include ATM withdrawals and debit card transactions, also known as the Regulation E option. Please opt-in for the Regulation E option to be activated by contacting us at 800-273-3406.
Clients may opt-out of this discretionary overdraft payment program at any time by contacting us at 800-273-3406.
