  1. A point of sale (POS) transaction is one in which you use your FirstPlus debit card to pay a merchant for a purchase or pay a bill. POS transactions do not include ATM transactions.

  2. With First Connect, there is a $1.00 fee for each check presented for payment, including a remotely created check. A remotely created check, rather than an electronic debit, may be created by an entity or individual you are paying and to whom you provide your account number and authorize the debit.

    The First Connect account is designed for customers who exclusively use electronic means (check card, ACH, online banking including bill pay) to make payments. This account provides, at no charge, a FirstPlus debit card, online banking with bill pay and access to electronic statements, which include electronic check images.

    To maintain this account, you must have access to a device that: 1) meets the operating system, Internet browsing, and other requirements set forth in the First Online Terms and Disclosures; and 2) connects to a non-public network. You must also enroll, log in, and remain active in online banking and consent to receive electronic statements.

    If you have not enrolled, logged in, and remained active in online banking and consented to receive electronic statements within 30 days from the date of account opening (the Enrollment Period), or if you later revoke your consent to receive electronic statements, this account will be converted to the First Organizer account. The First Organizer account may include, among other fees, a monthly service charge if certain conditions are not met. If your account is converted to a First Organizer account pursuant to this paragraph, you will be provided with a Truth in Savings Disclosure for the First Organizer account.

  3. One free box per year - any style or design - only valid on personal checking products excluding licensed product checks. Your free checks will be mailed to you within two weeks after you open your account.

Service is not available to a “signer” on the account who is not an account owner. Service is not available to clubs, organizations and/or churches and their members, schools and their employees/students. For revocable grantor trusts, the service is available only when a grantor is serving as a trustee and covers the grantor trustee(s) and their eligible family members. For all other fiduciary accounts, the service covers the beneficiary, who must be the primary member, and their eligible family members (Fiduciary is not covered).

    Preauthorized Transfer from Savings (PATS): $12.00 per transfer.

    Overdraft Line of Credit:
    $5.00 monthly participation fee. A revolving line of credit that will transfer funds in $100 increments when sufficient funds are not available in your checking account. Minimum repayment of amounts transferred from your Line of Credit will be 5.0% of your outstanding balance plus all accrued interest, or $50.00, whichever is greater, or the balance if less than $50.00. Please be aware that the Overdraft Line of Credit is a consumer loan and that credit approval is required.

    First Courtesy Coverage:
    $36.00 per item fee for overdrawing the account. This fee applies to overdrafts created by check, in-person withdrawal, other electronic transactions and, if you request, ATM and one-time debit card transactions. The bank reserves the right to require immediate payment of an overdraft on demand; whether overdrafts will be paid is discretionary and the bank reserves the right not to pay. For example, the bank typically will not pay overdrafts if your account is not in good standing, you are not making regular deposits or you have too many overdrafts.
