Money Market Accounts

With higher interest rates for higher balances, this account provides a simple way to maximize interest earnings while maintaining immediate access to funds. If you tend to keep more funds on hand, this account will give you flexibility and a higher return. Regular monthly statements will detail account activity and interest earned.

Overdraft Protection

Sometimes accidental overdrafts just happen. In the event of a deposit delay or budget miscalculation, we offer options to help you avoid the embarrassment of having a check returned and extra hassle that overdrafts can bring.

Beverly Bank offers the Overdraft Privilege Service. If your account qualifies for Overdraft Privilege, we will consider, without obligation on our part, paying items for which your account has insufficient or unavailable funds, instead of automatically returning those items unpaid.  With this service, Beverly Bank may authorize and pay checks written, automatic bill payments, and other electronic transactions that exceed your current account balance.  If you accidentally overdraw your account, we may cover your overdrafts, thus saving you the inconvenience of any bounced checks and fees normally charged to you by merchants for items returned to them.  Overdraft Privilege does not cover overdrafts caused by ATM and debit card transactions, unless you authorize the bank to do so.  There is no fee to sign up for Overdraft Privilege, but our standard per item overdraft fees¹ will apply if you overdraw your account.

1 A $30 overdraft charge per item, with a limit of six per-item charges per day. 18/65 accounts will be charged a $5 per-item overdraft charge.

An Overdraft Line of Credit2 is a loan that provides automatic coverage up to your available credit line whenever you write a check or make a withdrawal for more than your checking account balance. Learn more.

2 Subject to credit approval.

Overdraft Protection uses an automatic sweep transfer from your Statement Savings Account. This feature automatically withdraws funds from your savings account and deposits them into your checking account in the event of an overdraft.3

3 There is a $5 fee for each transfer. No more than six transfers and withdrawals, or a combination of such transfers and withdrawals are permitted per statement cycle to another Beverly Bank account or to a third party by means of a preauthorized or automatic transfer, online transfer or telephone transfer or similar order made by the depositor.
