Yesterday NCUA held an industry webinar on 2023 Supervisory Priorities that included the following information on the scope of review for Overdrafts:

• Website Advertising;
• Balance Calculation Methods;
• Settlement processes
• Member Statements and disclosures related to PALS II loans; and
• Management's actions to address unanticipated overdraft fees.
With CFPB inventing the new term Junk Fees and an apparent ever-increasing NCUA review of overdraft programs, you should be reviewing this area closely now and in the years ahead. I expect NCUA's scope in 2024 will expand in general and also include smaller credit unions.
Watch for future stories and podcasts on NCUA's Supervisory Priorities soon.
