* Essex Savings Bank will decline or return transactions when there is not enough money in the BankOn Account to cover the debit item. While this account prevents you from overdrawing in most cases, there may still be times when your account could have a negative balance. This could happen if a transaction is approved for one amount, but the actual charge is more than the amount of money in your account. For example, when a tip is added at a restaurant after the transaction for the meal has already been approved. In this situation, the full payment may go through and result in a negative balance on your account, but Essex Savings Bank will not charge you an overdraft fee. Consumer accounts only.
