Free Bill Payment - Online

Exchange Your Old Checks
Bounce Proof Checking saves you the inconvenience of bounced checks by giving you overdraft privilege protection. Avoid the embarrassment and bother of dealing with returned checks or rejected ATM transactions or store purchases. You also avoid returned check fees from retail merchants!
There is no application or form to sign. You automatically get Bounce Proof Checking with any HFB checking account.
If you inadvertently spend more money than is available in your account, Bounce Proof Checking will cover the check or withdrawal - up to your overdraft privilege limit:
- Up to $500 for checking accounts open 6 months or more.
- Up to $250 for checking accounts open less than 6 months or any student checking account
|A standard bank charge will apply, but the item will not be returned or denied. So you enjoy immediate convenience and potential cost savings. If you never overdraw your account, there's never an overdraft privilege charge to you. But you always have Bounce Proof Checking, just in case you need it!
