Overdraft protection is available for all accounts, except CDs. 


Federal law limits the number of certain withdrawals on any savings account or money market account to 6 per month. Withdrawals at ATMs are not subject to federal limits.


Scottrade Bank does not issue a charge for cash withdrawals made at any domestic ATM. We will refund cash withdrawal fees applied to your account by a domestic U.S. ATM at the end of each statement cycle. The rebate will appear as a lump-sum credit on the same statement that incurred the initial ATM fees. If you close your account before the end of the statement period, you will not receive a refund. Scottrade Bank makes its best effort to identify those ATM fees eligible for refund. In the event that you do not receive a refund, please contact Scottrade Bank® Support at 855.265.2265. We reserve the right to terminate or limit reimbursements if we observe a pattern of fraud or abusive overuse, and to modify or discontinue the ATM fee refund program at any time. 


Early withdrawals are subject to penalties.  Fees could reduce earnings.
