What happens if I go over my overdraft limit?
If you go over your overdraft limit, we refer to this as an 'Unarranged overdraft'. Information on the charges for this service can be found on our overdrafts page.
If you have a valid mobile number registered with us, to help you manage your account and avoid / reduce charges, we will automatically send an overdraft text alert to notify you when you are about to enter, or when you have entered into an unarranged overdraft. The alerts will also be sent when you don’t have enough funds in your account to make all of your scheduled payments that working day. This will give you the opportunity to pay in sufficient funds to bring your account balance back to either a positive balance, or within your arranged overdraft limit. Please note, text alerts are not sent on Cashminder accounts.
If you haven't already, you can register your mobile phone number via online banking or our mobile app.
1. log in to online banking.
2. Once you have logged in, go to ‘Profile’ and select ‘change your contact details’.
