Regulation E: 05. Electronic Transaction Overdraft Services Opt-In

Course overview

Prior to July 2010, if a consumer did not have enough funds to cover an electronic transaction, the bank or credit union would allow the transaction, cover it, and consequently charge a fee, without asking the consumer's consent. Consumers didn't like that and expected the transactions to simply be denied if their account had insufficient funds. As a result, Regulation E was amended to state that consumers must opt-in for this coverage. Let's take a look at what this protection means to consumers and their Financial Institutions.
