Can I make a deposit to cover an overdraft?

Yes, but your account may be overdrawn even if you think you have sufficient funds. At times you may have used Standard Overdraft Coverage and not even realized it. For instance, you may have used your debit card when funds from a recent deposit weren't available yet, or maybe you used your debit card before making a deposit later in the day. If you are not opted in to Standard Overdraft Coverage for your everyday debit card and ATM transactions, those transactions may be declined if you don't have sufficient funds in your checking and/or overdraft protection account to cover them at the time of the transaction, even if you plan to make a deposit later that same business day.
