How do I qualify for overdraft protection?

Green Dot cardholders who receive eligible direct deposits may qualify for overdraft protection. You must have an activated, chip-enabled debit card and opt in to overdraft protection to receive coverage. Overdraft coverage eligibility also includes factors such as the frequency of deposits to your account, your account status, and the transaction history of any accounts with us. Overdraft protection is only available on Demand Deposit Accounts. Refer to your Account Agreement to check feature availability.​​
