SAN ANTONIO, June 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Frost Bank, one of the largest banks based in Texastoday released her 14 month old baby $100 overdraft grace feature to be available to all Frost Personal Account and Frost Plus Account customers regardless of direct deposit status. The expanded functionality means that checking account customers who participate in the bank’s standard courtesy overdraft program will not be charged fees if they overdraw their checking accounts. $100 or less.

At the same time, Frost announced that it will eliminate fees on insufficient and returned items for all consumer customers. This applies to checking, savings, money market and health savings accounts.

Introduced in April 2021overdraft grace has placed the Frost Personal Account and the Frost Plus Account well ahead of other banks’ accounts, which charge an average of one $35 overdraft fees even on overdrafts as low as $6, or arrange for customers to obtain overdraft grace through seniority or credit rating. Since 2021, overdraft grace has helped more than 64,000 families obtain needed goods and services without incurring costs. This has been particularly important during the pandemic and as inflation has pushed up consumer prices.

For years, even before introducing overdraft grace, Frost helped customers by taking fee reduction measures such as showing credits before debits and processing debit card and ATM transactions in first, in the order they are received.

Now, by also eliminating the NSF fee and return item fee for consumers, Frost takes another step ahead of its competition while reinforcing one of its guiding principles: doing the right thing.

“Combined, the expansion of these features means Frost expects to forgo as much as $3.5 million per year,” said jimmy stead, director of the general public bank. “Nevertheless, we understand that people sometimes make mistakes or have a need that requires a little more money. We are the friend who will know how to spot them $100 when they need it.”

Big banks improve their overdraft policies and reduce fees https://welcome-echizenshi.com/big-banks-improve-their-overdraft-policies-and-reduce-fees/ Tue, 21 Jun 2022 19:18:58 +0000 https://welcome-echizenshi.com/big-banks-improve-their-overdraft-policies-and-reduce-fees/ The 25 largest US banks by number of branches have made substantial changes to their overdraft policies in the past 12 months, which could save consumers more than $4 billion a year.

The 25 largest US banks by number of branches have made substantial changes to their overdraft policies in the past 12 months, which could save consumers more than $4 billion a year. These reforms at the biggest banks are expected to have outsized benefits for black and Hispanic customers, as they are more likely to incur overdraft fees.

The banks are taking the action amid much-needed scrutiny from federal financial regulators, including the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), as well as Congress. U.S. banks are also facing increased competition from neobanks, digital-only financial service providers that offer many of the same services to consumers as traditional banks, although they don’t charge overdraft fees. Federal guidelines in 2020 that gave banks regulatory clarity on offering small loans also allowed them to provide liquidity to distressed customers without an overdraft. Additionally, the reduction in consumer reliance on overdrafts during the pandemic has highlighted what a banking system less focused on overdraft revenue could look like.

Most of these top 25 banks have lowered overdraft penalty fees, reduced the daily maximum number of overdraft fees charged, added a grace period or buffer amount before fees are charged, or eliminated fund fees (NSF) or overdraft transfer fees. Some passed these milestones in 2021, while five did so in quick succession in January. Other banks have since followed suit.

The overdraft has generated significant income for the banks

Banks initially created overdraft programs to help consumers cover small incidental fees that arose before an account holder’s next deposit, as paper checks could be slow to clear, but the fees had become a focus of major profit for many deposit taking institutions.

Most overdrafts today are for debit card transactions and electronic payments. More than half of overdrafts surveyed by Pew in 2013 did not recall agreeing in advance for debit card transactions to be made in exchange for paying overdraft penalties. Additionally, about 3 in 4 overdrafts said they were unaware of their right to have their transactions declined free of charge if the account did not have sufficient funds to cover a debit purchase.

The CFPB estimates that consumers paid $15.5 billion in overdraft and insufficient funds fees in 2019 alone. Overdraft penalties and NSF fees have averaged $35 per transaction in recent years, with repeated overdrafts causing some consumers to become unbanked, meaning they are no longer served by a bank . High or unpredictable fees were a top reason given for not having a bank account in a 2019 survey of unbanked households by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

Repeatedly high overdraft fees can harm the financial well-being of struggling consumers as well as the inclusiveness of the banking system if customers are forced to leave or close their accounts. In January 2022, the CFPB asked for the public’s opinion on junk fees, i.e. inflated or hidden fees. In a letter to the office in April, Pew pointed out that NSF’s overdraft and fee markets have not shown signs of price competitiveness and fees have not aligned with provider costs. For consumers, these costs have therefore historically proven to be unnecessarily high.

Several changes reduce overdraft fees

Among the top 25 banks, more than half said they would no longer charge NSF fees on personal checking accounts, and a similar number said they would charge no more than three overdraft fees per day. A majority will no longer charge fees to transfer money from other linked consumer accounts to cover overdrawn transactions. Previously, these transfers had a median price of $10.

Some banks are also now giving customers an extra day before charging a fee and allowing negative balance buffers – they don’t charge a fee when accounts are only slightly overdrawn. That’s helpful, because nearly two-thirds of overdrafts said in a 2013 Pew survey that the transaction that caused their most recent overdraft was $50 or less. In addition, seven of the 12 largest banks announced or launched small installment loans or lines of credit. These products allow customers to borrow small amounts of money from their bank on affordable terms, rather than paying penalties or turning to high-cost non-bank lenders.

Annual consumer savings

Recent changes to bank overdraft programs are expected to save consumers more than $4 billion a year. Changes to the three major banks alone are expected to save consumers more than $2 billion each year in fees. CFPB research found that these three banks accounted for 44% of all overdraft revenue in 2019, excluding credit unions and smaller banks.

These consumer-friendly changes should also help reduce the number of unbanked Americans over time. Fewer consumers will be forced out of the banking system due to high and unpredictable fees, and small loans from banks will provide an affordable option for those who have used payday loans or similar loans before. Repeated account withdrawals by payday lenders have also been linked to the loss of checking accounts.

Many of the country’s major banks have taken strong steps to reform overdrafts. Going forward, it will be important to see if smaller banks and credit unions follow suit and adopt equally beneficial changes.

Alex Mashinsky liked to tell people that “banks are not your friends”. Banks have stopped caring about their depositors, he said, and haven’t innovated since the ATM, a line he borrowed from former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker.

Mashinsky, managing director of crypto lending platform Celsius, now suffers from a rather banking problem: after a sharp increase in crypto deposit withdrawals, his company had to suspend such redemptions. The move “will put Celsius in a better position to meet, over time, its withdrawal obligations,” according to a company statement. Honor over time: this is also a rather banal way of formulating a promise.

It’s always satisfying to watch the third act of a play about pride. But banks, especially American banks, are not your friends. They provide monthly cash to consumers through credit cards at rates that remain high no matter what the Fed does. They make transfers unnecessarily difficult and expensive. They charge monthly to handle small deposits and can’t break the destructive habit of charging huge fees on minor overdrafts. Something has to fix the banks. It’s just that crypto assets, crypto liabilities, and crypto culture don’t seem to have been up to the task.

Mashinsky, like other crypto believers, seems to be making a structural argument: banks are bad, so it’s a good thing we’re not a bank. But Celsius takes deposits and lends at interest. So Mashinsky actually makes a cultural argument; he promises to be a better banker than all those other bankers. The challenge with the cultural argument against bankers is that there’s a reason they don’t provide better financial products to consumers: the returns are terrible. To be a better banker, unfortunately, you don’t need to be more innovative. You have to want to do good.

In May, as the value of cryptocurrencies plummeted, the Fed released the results of its annual survey of the economic well-being of American households. Overall, 19% of families used alternative financial services like check cashers or had no bank account at all. These portions are considerably higher for families without a high school diploma or earning less than $25,000 per year. They are also higher for black and Hispanic families.

The Fed’s report is consistent with 2019 survey data from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, which offers a bit more detail on why so many people sincerely seem to believe banks are not their friends. Of those without a bank account, half say they don’t have enough cash to meet minimum balance requirements – almost a third give the main reason. It’s not about financial education. Avoiding fees on small deposits, and in particular punitive and unpredictable fees on small overdrafts, is a rational choice.

Banks do not charge these fees because they do not have the capacity to innovate. They charge fees because fees are a good way to increase margins, especially on low balance accounts. A study this year by the US Government Accountability Office found that for banks with more than $1 billion in assets, overdraft fees represent just over 1% of operating revenue. The Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund, a nonprofit organization, has developed standards for checking accounts with low balances, low monthly costs and no overdraft fees, but so far only 238 of 4,800 banks and FDIC-insured savings institutions have voluntarily adopted these standards. A bank can be your friend. But this is not an innovation. It’s a choice.

This Fed survey offers an interesting picture of the types of services people are turning to instead. For starters, they just aren’t passionate about crypto. Last year, 12% of American adults held some sort of cryptocurrency. It’s not nothing. But almost all of them held crypto as an investment, not a service. Only 2% had used cryptocurrency to buy something and 1% to send money to friends or family. Crypto does not seem to be any more attractive than banks. It seems to be more attractive than the stock market – sometimes, but obviously not right now.

A much higher proportion of Americans, 10%, used a buy now, pay later service last year. Purposely borrowing a small amount from a BNPL service is a better experience than accidentally borrowing a small amount from a bank through an overdraft on your checking account. These services have their own consumer protection challenges and tend not to be profitable over the long term, particularly if they are regulated as tightly as the banks they so clearly resemble.

At the very least, however, buy now, pay later seems like a banking innovation that people actually want to use – as intended, not as a backdoor to higher investment returns. Mashinsky is right. Banks are a problem. But banks have always been a problem. This does not mean that crypto is the solution.

Banking can be complicated, with thousands of banks to choose from, each offering an exhaustive set of disclosures and fine print.

And then there are the rates and fees, all of which should be carefully considered before signing on the dotted line.

But these tips and tricks can help you bank smarter, so you can make more money and save time.

Reassess your bank

The average American adult has had the same primary checking account for about 17 years, according to a 2021 Bankrate survey.

Customers often stay with the same bank if it does not charge them a fee or if they think it would be difficult to switch banks, according to the survey.

“Just don’t fall asleep at the switch,” says Greg McBride, CFA, Bankrate’s chief financial analyst. “The market is constantly changing with new offerings, innovative products and features that could put more money in your pocket or make your life easier. Or both.

“So it pays to have your antenna up and be on the lookout for something that’s a better deal or works better for your financial lifestyle.”

Look at the fees you pay and see if you can avoid them.

If your bank requires a high minimum balance, for example, check to see if there are high-yield online checking accounts with lower minimums to avoid maintenance fees.

These banks also typically offer fee-free ATM withdrawals, as well as large, convenient ATM networks for home and work.

Bankrate’s Best Banks of 2022 can help you find the right bank for you.

Don’t assume your bank offers the best rate

You may feel like your bank values ​​you as a customer, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re paying a competitive annual percentage yield (APY) on your funds.

“It’s partly because people just assume their bank is going to do – I’ll say, ‘right next to them’, so to speak – and give them what they should be getting,” says Elizabeth Buffardi, planner Certified Financial at Crescendo Financial Planners in Oak Brook, Illinois.

The Federal Reserve raised rates twice in the spring of 2022, after holding them close to zero for two years.

Rising interest rates have prompted some banks to increase yields on their savings accounts and certificates of deposit (CDs), making this a good time to hunt for the best rates.

You can find online banks with deposit accounts that pay rates several times higher than the national average.

Don’t let a high rate fool you

The APY of an account is the rate you will earn per year if the interest is compounded.

The APY for savings accounts and interest-bearing checking accounts is often variable, while the APY for most CDs is fixed.

When shopping for an account with the highest APY, read the fine print to see how long the rate offered to you lasts.

A promotional or introductory rate may be competitive, but may only last a few months or a year.

Also check if a certain minimum balance is required to receive a given APY.

Consider a CD for a higher APY

Savings accounts and money market accounts today can earn up to around 1.15% and 1.23%, respectively. You may be able to find a better rate with a CD if you’re comfortable with locking up your money for a fixed term.

One-year CDs currently pay up to around 1.8% on a one-year CD, while two-year CDs pay around 2.5% and five-year CDs around 2.85%.

Keep in mind that a CD may have a higher minimum balance requirement than a savings account.

Also, withdrawing money before the end of the CD’s term may result in a penalty, which may reduce the interest you’ve earned and possibly some of the principal.

If in doubt, put your money in a liquid savings account or money market account instead.

Strategically plan banking interactions

Scheduling your visit to a branch for non-emergency matters, rather than just going there, can help ensure you get the help you need.

If you’re applying for a mortgage, for example, knowing that a mortgage specialist will be there when you leave can save you time. Another time-saving option is to transact online, when possible.

When calling a bank’s customer service number for routine questions, try during off-peak hours to reduce wait time.

Communicate account closure plan

Don’t assume that your bank account will automatically close an account if you write off the balance.

Contact the bank to verify that the account is properly closed. Also, it’s helpful to move all automatic bill payments to a new account before closing the old one.

The same goes for payments you receive such as direct deposit, social security, or a pension.

Failing to close an account with a zero balance could result in overdraft fees if automatic bill payments haven’t been stopped, which can ultimately hurt your credit and make it more difficult to open other accounts.

Closing an account too early could cost you dearly

Reasons for closing a bank account include moving to a new location, switching to online banking, or seeking better rates or a sign-up bonus elsewhere.

However, it is useful to know if there is a penalty for closing your checking account.

Some banks will charge you a fee if you close an account shortly after opening it.

For example, Key Bank and Regions Bank charge an early closing fee of $25 if you close your account within 180 days of opening it.

Read the fine print if you want to close an account soon after opening it. You can choose to avoid an account closure fee by waiting for the end of the designated period while opening a new account somewhere else in the meantime.

Consider keeping multiple banks

You might find the best of both worlds by having accounts in both a physical bank and an online bank.

Many consumers stick to traditional banks so they can visit a branch for in-person assistance with their banking needs.

Traditional banks may also have more robust ATM networks, giving you access to cash locally as well as across the country or the world.

A disadvantage of physical banks, however, is that they often do not pay a competitive return on deposit accounts.

It is common for a traditional bank to pay an APY of 0.01% on a savings account, while an online bank may pay up to 1.15% on a high-yield online savings account , making it a smart addition to a branch account.

Don’t forget that card you never use

You may have a credit card that goes unused for long periods of time.

A potential downside of closing such a card is that it could affect your credit utilization rate — the percentage of credit used versus the amount available — which could ultimately lower your FICO score.

But some banks will close a credit card if it is not used often enough.

One way to prevent the bank from closing such a credit card is to set up recurring charges on the card, such as an insurance payment or a gym membership.

You may also find that you don’t use your debit or ATM card often these days, as cash-only transactions are less common and debit card purchases can mean you miss out on cash back rewards. and credit card points.

Making a withdrawal or purchase once every two months with your debit card can be enough to keep the bank from shutting it down.

Keep your bank account active

A bank can close your bank account if you don’t use it often enough, and they can also charge an inactive account fee.

Policies vary by bank, but a general rule is to use your account at least once every two months.

Keep in mind that small, recurring deposits in a savings account add up over time.

If you have a bank account that has become inactive, it may have been sent to your state as abandoned or unclaimed property.

Check with the state you live in for its abandoned property policies. Provide your bank with an up-to-date address so they can contact you if your account becomes inactive or dormant.

Money in an old account may have a return that does not keep up with inflation, and it may also result in dormant or inactive fees.

Notify your bank when traveling

A declined credit card, debit card, or ATM card transaction is the last thing you need when you’re on vacation.

Each bank may have different policies, but you may want to err on the side of caution and let your bank know you are traveling to avoid transactions being declined.

You may be able to report this travel information to your bank through their app, or you can call to relay your travel dates and destinations.

Budgeting can help you save money

Knowing how much you’re spending is essential to reaching your savings goals, and a budget is a roadmap for getting there.

Creating a budget and analyzing your expenses can help you find areas to reduce your expenses, such as recurring payments for services you no longer use. Subscription fees and automated purchases can add up over time, as can annual fees.

One tool that can help you start saving on a budget is Bankrate’s Home Budget Calculator, which lets you enter your income and expenses. Budgeting apps, such as Mint, PocketGuard, and YNAB, can help automate the process.
