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 can avoid bounced checks and associated overdraft fees by linking your Kearny Bank savings account to your checking account. In the event you are overdrawn funds are automatically withdrawn from your savings. There is no fee unless a transfer occurs.
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 or electronic item is submitted or resubmitted for payment; therefore, you may 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.
