How do I activate overdraft protection for my checking account?

You will have the opportunity to request overdraft protection on your account application when you open a new First Internet Bank checking and/or savings account. Please specify how you would like the accounts to be linked if you have more than one checking and/or savings account. If your accounts are already open, contact a Relationship Banker at 1-888-873-3424 for assistance.

If you would like to be considered for an overdraft line of credit, you will have the opportunity to apply for it through the checking account application. An overdraft line of credit is subject to credit approval.

If your checking account is already open but you did not ask to be considered for an overdraft line of credit with your account application, you may make the request through the online banking site. Log in to your online banking account, click Additional Services, select Open Deposit Accounts, choose the Overdraft Line of Credit for existing checking option from the drop-down menu and click the Proceed button to advance to the online application. Complete and submit the application electronically. Once the application has been submitted, print, sign, and return the confirmation screen to us via fax at 1-888-644-8678. You will receive a decision within two business days.
