Description: “Junk” fees continue to be intensely scrutinized by regulators. In the realm of community banking, overdraft and insufficient funds fees have been a particular focus. In August 2022, the FDIC issued a Supervisory Guidance on Multiple Re-Presentment NSF Fees warning institutions about the serious consumer compliance risks associated with the assessment of multiple NSF fees arising from the re-presentment of the same unpaid transaction. The CFPB, along with other regulatory agencies, issued guidance addressing multiple re-presentments and “surprise” overdraft fees, meaning fees assessed because of intervening transactions that were processed before the debit settled causing an overdraft. We have now had over a year of processing this guidance and regulator statements, so it is time for an update to assess the current regulatory landscape.
