Optional Overdraft Protection Service & Optional Overdraft Protection Service Plus also known as "OOPS & OOPS Plus"
From time to time we all have experienced that moment when the balance in our checking account is less than we thought. Perhaps you forgot to record a check, made an error in subtraction, forgot to transfer funds to pay your bills or just lost track of the balance. Having a check returned due to insufficient funds can be costly, inconvenient and potentially an embarrassing experience.
