Credit union regulator’s webinar to look at overdraft protection programs, including fees, types

Overdraft protection programs – and their fee structures, public views of the services, and market changes – are on the agenda for a March 23 webinar sponsored by the federal credit union regulator.

The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) said the hour-long event (which starts at 2 p.m. ET) is titled “Overdraft Programs: Searching for New Solutions.” Featured speakers include Luis Dopico, chief economist for the consulting service CU Collaborate, and Taylor Nelms, senior director of research for the Filene Research Institute.

Among the topics expected to be covered:

  • Types of overdraft protection programs;
  • How credit unions and banks compare;
  • Fee structures;
  • How members, consumer advocates, and regulators view programs; and
  • Market changes, including the impact of fintech.

Registration for the event is open now, the agency said.
