CFPB RIN: 3170-AA42 Publication ID: Fall 2014 
Title: Overdraft 
Abstract:

In June 2013, the CFPB issued a white paper summarizing the CFPB's initial findings from its analysis of overdraft practices. The white paper, which was based on supervisory data from several large banks, highlighted a number of possible consumer protection concerns, including how consumers opt in to overdraft coverage for ATM and one-time debit card transactions, overdraft coverage limits, transaction posting order, overdraft and insufficient funds fee structure, and involuntary account closures. In July 2014, the CFPB released a report, based on data from the same sources, providing additional information about the outcomes of consumers who do and do not opt in to overdraft coverage for ATM and one-time debit card transactions. The July 2014 report also explored the transactions that overdraw consumer accounts. The CFPB plans to release the results of further studies on overdraft programs and their effects on consumers. The CFPB is also considering whether rules governing overdraft and related services are warranted, and, if so, what types of rules would be appropriate. A possible rulemaking might include disclosures or address specific acts or practices.
