The Future of Overdraft (Webinar)

Watch Recorded Webinar (Available Below)

Date: Thursday, May 5, 2016
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm (ET)

It's been more than five years since the rumors started that overdraft would be on its way out because of changes to Reg. E and Dodd-Frank's establishment of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Now more than ever, credit union executives and compliance officers need to stay informed and up-to-date about potential regulatory changes. 
In this engaging webinar, industry expert and attorney, Christopher Leonard brings you the latest information on the future of overdraft and potential CFPB rulemaking.  
The webinar will address the following questions: 
  • When will CFPB issue an overdraft rule?
  • What are CFPB's main concerns and what might they do?
  • What are the other regulatory agencies focusing on until CFPB issues its overdraft rule?
  • Are overdraft fees really paid primarily by the poor?
  • How do we best position ourselves in light of what CFPB might do?
