Truth-in-Savings final rule analysis offered by CUNA
WASHINGTON (2/18/09)--The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) has analyzed a final rule by the Federal Reserve Board that addresses disclosures in connection with overdraft protection plans. Although credit unions are not subject to the Fed’s rule, CUNA expects the National Credit Union Administration to issue a similar rule in the future. The final rule--effective July 1, 2010--amends Regulation DD, the Truth in Savings Act. It requires financial institutions to:
* Disclose on a periodic statement the dollar amounts charged for overdraft fees and returned item fees, both for the month and year-to-date; and * 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.
In conjunction with this final rule, the Fed also issued a proposal under Regulation E, the Electronic Fund Transfer Act that will provide additional protections relating to the assessment of overdraft fees. These changes will only apply to ATM and debit card transactions. For more information, use the links.
