Decoding Recent Overdraft Criticism and Market Shifts – a Free Webinar
JMFA is offering a complimentary learning opportunity on September 28 at 9:30 a.m. (CT) titled: Decoding Recent Overdraft Criticism and Market Shifts. Legislators have recently turned up the heat on excessive fees and undisclosed overdraft program procedures. As inflation impacts the country, political agendas can create uncertainty regarding important financial service options. In this session, JMFA’s EVP of Compliance Review, Cheryl Lawson, will share her expertise and insight on the recent topics making news headlines. She will address some of the continuous elements proposed by lawmakers to impose changes to regulations on overdraft programs and why previous attempts have failed. She will also address specific areas that can raise red flags for overdraft regulators—and potential interest from lawyers pursuing class-action lawsuits. Register for this event here.
