Bounce Protection Program (State Bank & Trust Company Review)

The Bounce Protection Program aims to help protect account holders should they have insufficient funds in their account to cover a transaction. With Bounce Protection, users will be charged a paid item fee of $35 for each overdrawn item, but the items will be paid. This protection is no additional cost unless it’s used.

Overdraft items are approved as long as an account is in good standing, which means there are sufficient deposits made to bring the overdrawn account to a positive end-of-day balance at least once every 30 calendar days.

Other elements of good standing include avoiding excessive overdrafts, and accounts can’t have legal orders, levies, or liens placed against them.
