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

At complex #c reditunions (>$500m+) Examiners ๐˜„๐—ถ๐—น๐—น ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜ƒ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐˜„:

โ€ข Website Advertising;

โ€ข Balance Calculation Methods;

โ€ข Settlement processes

โ€ข Member Statements and disclosures related to PALS II loans; and

โ€ข 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.
