2 The $100 Negative Balance Buffer is only available with Truist One Checking and allows clients to overdraw their account up to $100. There is no decision required as this feature is automatically available when a client qualifies.

To INITIALLY QUALIFY for the $100 Negative Balance Buffer, the requirements below must be met:

  • Account must be opened for a minimum of 35 calendar days
  • Account must be funded with a positive balance
  • A single direct deposit of at least $100 per month must be made for two (2) consecutive months

To REMAIN QUALIFIED for the $100 Negative Balance Buffer, the requirement below must be met:

  • A recurring direct deposit of at least $100 per month

For accounts that qualify for the $100 Negative Balance Buffer and also have Overdraft Protection, Truist will use the $100 Negative Balance Buffer first. If the account has neither, transactions that exceed the account balance will typically be declined or returned.

After qualifying, if two months pass without a Direct Deposit of at least $100, you will no longer have access to $100 Negative Balance Buffer.

3 The Monthly Maintenance Fee (MMF) can be waived for the Truist One Checking account for each statement cycle by:

Option 1: Making $500 or more in total qualifying Direct Deposits per statement cycle. A qualifying direct deposit is an electronic credit via ACH deposited to your account during the current statement cycle. Pre-authorized transfers made from one account to another or deposits made via a branch, ATM, online transfer, mobile device, debit card/prepaid card number or the mail are not eligible to meet this requirement.

Option 2: Maintaining a total combined ledger balance of $500 or more in any Truist related accounts across personal deposits and all investments as reflected on the business day before your statement cycle end date. A Ledger Balance is actual balance in your account on a specific day and does not reflect any holds or pending transactions. Your Total Combined Balance is the sum of all balances within the Truist personal deposit accounts (checking, savings, money market or CDs), IRAs or brokerage accounts introduced through Truist Investment Services, Inc. Related Accounts automatically includes all applicable accounts associated with primary and secondary account holders.

Option 3: Having a personal Truist credit card, mortgage or consumer loan, excluding LightStream®.  

Option 4: Having a linked Small Business Checking Account. Eligible Small Business account types include: Truist Dynamic Checking, Business Interest Checking, Simple Business Checking and Business Value 200.

Option 5: Maintenance fees waived for students under the age of 25. Waiver for a student under the age of 25 requires that they are listed as the primary owner. The waiver is applied automatically at account opening and expires on the 25th birthdate of the student or their stated graduation date, whichever comes later. On this date, the account is subject to all applicable fees, including the Monthly Maintenance Fee unless at least one waiver criterion is satisfied.

4 Most Truist One checking accounts start in Level 1 upon account opening and can begin increasing levels following the first month. Thereafter, Truist One Checking levels are determined by the balance in your Truist One Portfolio (“Portfolio”). Your Portfolio includes all eligible Truist consumer deposit balances in your checking accounts, savings, Certificates of Deposit, IRAs and/or all investments through Truist Investments Services, Inc. where you are the primary or secondary account owner. For each of your accounts used in the Portfolio, we use the monthly average ledger balance. We then take the sum of all of these accounts to determine the Portfolio balance for the month. Each month, your level is based on the highest Portfolio value of the three previous months.

Leveling up can occur on a monthly basis but leveling down can only occur on a three-month basis.

Accounts that are opened with a company ID code through a company sponsored Financial Wellness program start at Level 2; Clients identified as Truist Teammates, Premier clients, and Wealth clients start at Level Premier. The monthly maintenance fee waiver and any other associated benefits can take up to two (2) business days to take effect. NOTE: Truist Dynamic Business Checking linkage will be checked on the 2nd business day of the month when levels are calculated. If clients have a linked Dynamic Business Checking account, they will be granted Level Premier.
