FRB-NY: Experience Begets Overdraft Fee Knowledge

Perhaps reflecting the Biden Administration’s examination of overdraft fees, a new report from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York staff on overdraft credit found that experienced overdrafters are roughly twice as likely to know their bank’s overdraft fee than customers who have not overdrawn in the past year.  The report also finds that half of customers surveyed did not know their bank’s overdraft fee, which the report calls “potentially worrisome,” but notes that 41 percent of respondents are also indifferent to their bank’s overdraft policies.

Barr Takes Over CFPB Card-Fee Fight

As anticipated, HFSC Financial Institutions Subcommittee Chair Barr (R-KY) has introduced H.J. Res. 122, the same CRA resolution overturning CFPB’s late fee rule introduced last week by freshman Rep. Ogles (R-TN).  Reports indicate poor communication between the Chair and junior member, and we expect this resolution to be the one that moves forward.

House GOP Resolution Challenges CFPB Credit-Card Late-Fee Rule

As promised, the GOP resolution to overturn the CFPB’s credit-card late-fee rule has now been introduced (see FSM Report CREDITCARD37).  HFSC Rep. Ogles (R-TN) introduced H.J. Res. 121 on Tuesday, adding another attack to the rule which is already being challenged in court.

FinCEN Advances Limited KYC Reform

Acting on its longstanding promise, FinCEN in consultation with banking agency and NCUA staff today issued a RFI examining new KYC approaches, including permitting banks to collect partial SSN information directly from the customer backed by third-party sources that provide full SSN prior to account opening.

BIS: Statement Revisions Augur Greater Bank Risk

Doubtless reflecting Credit Suisse’s failure, the BIS today released a study on risk information derived from pre-publication revisions to bank financial statements sent to supervisors, finding that the frequency of revisions is highly correlated with a bank’s subsequent CAMELS rating downgrade, higher future average probability of borrower default, and greater distance to default score.
