How long can my bank account be negative?
But banks don’t keep negative accounts open indefinitely. If you overdraw an account too many times or let an account stay negative for too long, your bank will likely close the account.
How long can your bank account be overdrawn before they close it?
As a matter of policy, banks vary the time they take to close negative accounts based on the size of the overdraft and the banking history with the consumer. This is where banking loyalty works in your favor. Many typically wait 30 to 60 days before doing so, while others may wait four months.

What happens if your bank account goes negative and you never pay it?

What happens if your account is overdrawn for too long?
Overdrawing too often (or keeping your balance negative for too long) can have its own consequences. Your bank can close your account and report you to a debit bureau, which may make it hard for you to get approved for an account in the future. (And you‘ll still owe the bank your negative balance.)
What happens if you don’t pay your overdraft?
If you don’t pay the overdraft, the bank will ultimately seize funds from your account to cover and any late fees that have accrued.
How long do you have to pay back overdraft?
You‘ll have to pay off the overdraft eventually, usually after two or three years. The way banks try to encourage this is to reduce the maximum 0% overdraft each year – the idea being that by the time the 0% ends, you‘ll have paid it off. Fail to do so, and you‘ll be subject to astronomical charges and fees.
