Overdraft Privilege Services* (OPS)


Rather than automatically returning your checks unpaid when you make a mistake or write a check for more money than you have in your checking account, as another convenient First American International Bank (FAIB) customer courtesy, we will consider payment of your reasonable overdrafts.
*Overdrafts normally considered up to $600 (Personal) OR $1,500 (Business)



  • Requires no action on your part
  • Does not require you to sign any additional documents
  • Costs you nothing unless you use it



  • You may avoid very expensive charges from merchants for returned checks.
  • You may avoid the embarrassment and inconvenience of dishonored checks.


Overdraft Privilege is a purely discretionary service and we are not obligated to pay any overdraft. Not all accounts are eligible and restrictions apply. For example, we typically do not pay overdrafts if your account is not in good standing or if you have too many overdrafts. See our Overdraft Privilege Service Policy. The categories or types of transactions that may overdraw your account include checks, in-person (teller) withdrawal, or other electronic means.  Our normal non-sufficient funds or overdraft charge (currently $25.00) will apply to each item overdrawing your account and we reserve the right to require you to repay your overdrafts immediately or on demand.
