Overdraft Protection

{beginAccordion}

How does Bounce Protection Policy work?

Texas Bank is not obligated to pay any item presented for payment if your account does not contain sufficient funds; however, as long as you maintain your account in "good standing," we may approve your overdraft items within your current available Bounce Protection Policy limit as a non-contractual courtesy.

For continued participation in Bounce Protection Policy overdraft privilege, your account is in "good standing" if you (1) make sufficient deposits to bring your account to a positive end-of-day balance within 30 calendar days (including the payment of all bank fees and charges), (2) avoid excessive overdrafts suggesting the use of Bounce Protection Policy as a continuing line of credit, (3) have no legal orders, levies or liens against your account; and (4) have opted in for Bounce Protection Policy.

Please note that the amount of the overdraft plus our Overdraft Paid Item(s) fee of $29.50 for each item will be deducted from your overdraft limit. If the item is returned, the Returned Item(s) fee of $29.50 will be deducted from your account. No interest will be charged on the overdraft balance for consumer accounts.

How do I know when I use the Bounce Protection Policy limit?

You will receive an overdraft notice in the mail each time items are presented. The notice will show the check number(s), transaction amount(s) and the Overdraft Paid Item or Returned Item fee(s). You will need to subtract the total fees when balancing your checkbook.

What is my Bounce Protection Policy limit? If I have two checking accounts, can I get Bounce Protection Policy on both?

Contact one of our service representatives to find out the Bounce Protection Policy limit for your account. If you have multiple accounts for your household, you may have coverage limits.

What if I go beyond my Bounce Protection Policy limit? 

Overdrafts above and beyond your established Bounce Protection Policy limit may result in checks or other items being returned to the payee. The overdraft fee of $29.50 will be charged per item and assessed to your account. An overdraft notice will be sent to notify you of items paid and/or returned. All charges against the account apply to the overdraft limit. 

How quickly must I repay my Bounce Protection Policy?

You should make every attempt to bring your account to a positive end-of-day balance as soon as possible, and must do so within 30 calendar days. If you are not able to do so, you will receive a letter from Texas Bank informing you that your Bounce Protection Policy limit has been suspended and additional items will be returned.

What does my Bounce Protection Policy privilege cost?

There is no additional cost associated with this privilege. Please note that overdraft fee(s) apply with or without Bounce Protection Policy.

To help you manage your account, the total overdraft fees you have paid for items (both paid and returned) during the current month and for the year-to-date will be reflected on your monthly checking statement. 

What are some of the ways I can access my Bounce Protection Policy limit?

You can access your Bounce Protection Policy a variety of different ways, so your account is always protected:

  • By check
  • By debit card
  • ATM withdrawal
  • ACH auto debit

EMV Debit Card

{beginAccordion}

How does it work?

Chip cards are easy to use, but there are some differences compared to using a magnetic stripe card. Instead of swiping the card through the terminal, a chip card is inserted into a chip-enabled reader and stays in during the full transaction.

Follow these steps to use your card at a chip-enabled terminal:

  • Insert your card face up and chip end into the chip-enabled terminal
  • Leave the card in the terminal during the entire transaction
  • Follow the instructions on the screen and either sign your name or enter your PIN as needed; be sure to remove your card and take your receipt when the transaction is complete 

What is an EMV or “chip” card? 

EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa, a global standard for inter-operation of integrated circuit cards (IC cards or “chip cards”).

What is the benefit of EMV?

The biggest benefit of EMV is the reduction in card fraud resulting from counterfeit, lost and stolen cards. EMV chip cards contain embedded microprocessors that provide strong transaction security features and other application capabilities not possible with traditional magnetic stripe cards. EMV cards have been in use in many other countries for several years and the United States is one of the last countries to migrate to EMV.

Do I use my card in the same manner as used today?

Yes, with one exception. EMV cards must remain in the terminal card reader until the transaction is completed. Magnetic stripe cards are typically inserted into a terminal and then immediately removed. With EMV cards you will insert your card into a slot in the terminal and not remove until your transaction is completed and you are prompted by the terminal to remove your card. This is necessary so that the security features on your card are properly synchronized for future transactions. 

Can I continue to use my card for both PIN verified and signature verified transactions? 

Yes. Just as with a magnetic stripe card, you will continue to have that option depending on payment brand rules, issuer preference and terminal owner network preferences. Different terminal types support different cardholder verification methods. For example, attended POS devices often support both PIN and signature verification while ATMs and unattended card-activated terminals typically support PIN only.

Will my card always have both an EMV chip and a magnetic stripe?

Eventually cards will be issued with only the EMV chip. This will most likely not occur for several years depending on the duration of the transition period from stripe to chip.

Will my EMV card be accepted at all merchants and ATMs?

Your card will continue to be accepted at all merchants and ATMs that accept Visa debit cards.

What if a merchant or ATM is not equipped to accept EMV cards?

Texas Bank cards will be issued with both an EMV chip and a magnetic stripe. This allows your card to be accepted at terminals, regions, or countries that have not deployed EMV.

Do I need to sign the back of the card?

Yes. You still need to sign the back of your card.

Can I use it to make purchases online or by phone?

Yes. You can use your chip card to make these purchases as you do today.

Can I use my card at an ATM?

Yes. For ATM transactions, insert your card into terminal and follow the instructions on the screen. Depending on the type of ATM, you might be prompted to re-insert your card. Leave the card in the ATM until the transaction is complete and the card is released, and then remove your card and any money you might have withdrawn.

When I used my chip card, I was asked to select between “Debit” and “Visa Debit". Which one should I choose?

It is fine to select either one — your transaction will work either way.

What is the difference between chip and signature and chip and PIN?

You may be asked to provide your signature or enter your PIN to complete a transaction when you use your card. You will need to use your PIN at ATMs and it may be required at some unattended terminals such as fuel pumps and payment kiosks.

What if my card is lost or stolen?

It's important to report a lost or stolen card immediately. Keep a record of the telephone number on the back of your card and call it if necessary. 

Will chip cards prevent data breaches?

While chip cards won't prevent the types of large-scale data breaches that have hit some merchants, they do make it extremely difficult to produce counterfeit cards from that stolen data.

Does a chip card contain more information about me that could be stolen?

No, a chip card does not contain any information about you that isn’t in your magnetic stripe cards – just your name, account number, and expiration date. 

Can someone steal the information in my chip card remotely using radio waves or a “contactless reader”?

No, your chip card must be inserted into a POS terminal or ATM in order to read the chip.
