Overdraft disclosure rule mostly mirrors Feds
ALEXANDRIA, Va (7/17/09)—A final rule adopted by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Thursday will require credit unions to disclose on periodic statement the dollar amounts charged for overdraft fees and returned item fees, both for the month and the year-to-date. The NCUA action more closely aligns the federal credit union regulator’s Truth in Savings Act rule and its official staff commentary with that of the Federal Reserve Board's Regulation DD. Until now, only credit unions that promote or advertise payment overdrafts services were required to provide these disclosures. The rule is effective as of Jan. 1, 2010. The final rule will also require credit unions to provide account balance information through an automated system that discloses only the amount of funds available for withdrawal, without including the additional funds that would be available under an overdraft program. The rule also removes current provisions regarding the electronic delivery of disclosures.
