There are so many demands for your time; your family, your job, and your community… just to name a few. At United Bank, we realize that you won't always have time for your checkbook. Our overdraft protection products are safety nets that provide you with both convenience and peace of mind.
Sweep Account – Use Your Own Funds as Overdraft Protection
Protect yourself from unnecessary overdraft fees by linking a checking, savings, or money market account to your primary account. This allows for funds to be automatically transferred or "swept" from the secondary account to fund transactions/checks for more than can be covered in your primary account. Fees may apply.
Overdraft Protection Line of Credit
With an Overdraft Protection Line of Credit, your checking account is covered up to the amount of your line of credit. It protects you from overdrafts and from having transactions denied for insufficient funds. Funds are automatically transferred when you exceed your checking account balance. To cover the transaction(s), funds are transferred from your line of credit to your checking account. You will receive a monthly statement detailing any outstanding balance used on the overdraft line of credit. Fees may apply.
Overdraft Privilege is a service we add to your checking account to cover inadvertent overdrafts, subject to the eligibility criteria as explained below. With Overdraft Privilege we will generally pay your overdraft items up to $500.00 total; however, whether your overdrafts will be paid is discretionary and we reserve the right not to pay. For example, we typically do not pay overdrafts if your account is not in good standing, or you are not making regular deposits, or you have too many overdrafts. Both the amount of the overdraft items and all applicable fees, including but not limited to the overdraft fees, are included in this $500 limit. All deposits to overdrawn accounts are applied to the negative balance.
Overdraft Privilege Eligibility
No application is required for Overdraft Privilege; eligibility is at the sole discretion of the Bank and is based on you managing your checking account in a responsible manner. Your Overdraft Privilege may be suspended or permanently removed based on the following criteria:
Transactions Eligible for Overdraft Privilege
Overdraft Privilege will be available for all checks written, in-person withdrawals, ACH transactions, preauthorized automatic transfers, internet banking and telephone banking. Overdraft Privilege will not be available for ATM and everyday debit card transactions unless you authorize the bank by completing an ATM/Debit Card Consent Form.
NOTE: If you have consented to Overdraft Privilege for ATM transactions, please verify your balance before initiating an ATM cash withdrawal. All overdrafts will be subject to an overdraft fee for each withdrawal until the account returns to a positive balance.
Overdraft Privilege Opt Out:
If you do not want to have Overdraft Privilege, simply contact us and we will provide you an opt out form to remove this benefit from your account. It is important for you to consider that there is no additional cost for Overdraft Privilege and that by opting out you are instructing us to return unpaid all items presented against insufficient funds. If you opt-out, you will still be charged a returned item fee. Customers who receive a Social Security, federal direct deposit, or any other entitlement benefit must opt-out if they do not want United Bank to apply those funds to pay an overdraft.
NOTE: Please be aware that holds placed on your account for pending electronic transactions, such as hotel or rental car deposits, reduce your available balance and may cause your account to become overdrawn.
We monitor accounts for chronic or excessive use. If you overdraw your account more than six times in a rolling twelve month period you will be contacted to discuss alternatives and/or continued use of Overdraft Privilege.

In an environment where the evolutionary changes of our customers shape our business, United Bank continues to leverage technology to provide convenience and value to our customers. Mobile check deposit adds a level of customer interaction that is unique among community banks.

Checks should be endorsed, "For United Bank mobile deposit only," beneath customer signature. Funds availability varies according to United Bank's deposit guidelines.
Everyone has valuable documents that need to be protected from possible damage, loss or theft. Safe Deposit Boxes are offered in a variety of sizes to provide that piece of mind. Each authorized renter will sign a contract at the time the safe deposit box is established. Each time the safe deposit box is entered, an access card must also be signed. For your protection, bank personnel carefully monitor access to the safe deposit box area. The person attempting to gain access to the safe deposit box must be listed on the contract. Replacement of a lost safe deposit box key is $50.
Safe Deposit Boxes are available at Atmore, Bay Minette, Daphne, Flomaton, Foley, Frisco City, Lillian, Monroeville, Pace, and Semmes. Call for prices and availability.
United Bank also offers Personal Storage Compartments at some locations. The contents of Safe Deposit Boxes are not FDIC Insured.
Storage Compartments (PSCs) are reliable and easy-to-access storage compartments and are only available from United Bank. Available at newer United Bank locations, PSCs allow customers to store documents and other items in a safe, convenient location away from home.
PSCs feature a spacious interior that includes a felt lining to prevent damage to your belongings. An all-steel construction for durability and strength.
Access your PSC at anytime during normal business hours. You don't need a bank employee to accompany you to your PSC. No keys are required to enter your PSC - a four digit PIN is all you'll need to lock and unlock your PSC.
Checking account approval required for ownership of a Personal Storage Compartment. The cost for a PSC is $30 every 3 months, or a reduced one-time annual fee of $100.00. Payments must be electronically debited from a United Bank checking account.
Personal Storage Compartments are available at Magnolia Springs, Jay and Milton locations.
Personal Storage Compartments are not designed to offer the same security features as a traditional Safe Deposit Box or Vault. PSCs are not FDIC Insured.
