Bank of America Overdraft Fees Class Action Settlement
Settlement Deadline: April 20, 2018

If you were charged over $35 for extended overdrawn balance by Bank of America, you may be entitled to compensation. Bank of America NA has agreed to pay $66.6 million to settle a class action lawsuit alleging it assessed extended overdrawn balance charges that violate the National Bank Act’s usury limit. If you incurred at least one $35 extended overdrawn balance charge in connection with your Bank of America personal checking account, you may be entitled to compensation from the BofA overdraft fees class action settlement.

Class Members include holders of Bank of America checking accounts who, between Feb. 25, 2014 and Dec. 30, 2017, were assessed at least one extended overdrawn balance charge that was not refunded.

Class Members may receive a cash payment, account credit or debt reduction payment. The amount of the award will depend on the number of extended overdrawn balance charges they paid and the total number of Class Members who are eligible for benefits from the BofA overdraft fee settlement.

Class Members who are current Bank of America checking account holders will have a cash award automatically deposited into their accounts. Former BofA checking account holders will receive their payment via check.

Debt relief will be provided to Class Members whose personal checking accounts were closed by Bank of America while they were in overdrawn status with an extended overdrawn balance charge still pending, and whose overdrawn balances remain due to BofA.
