Overdraft Privilege

what is overdraft privilege
  • Provides a valued service people want.
  • Customizable for community banks and credit unions.
  • Applicable to personal or business accounts.
  • Increases non-interest income.
  • Ensures compliance with federal regulations.

Pinnacle Overdraft Privilege programs automate overdraft processing, enhance loyalty and preserve fee income. And unlike traditional non-disclosed, matrix-model programs which can be confusing and unpredictable to consumers, our programs are designed to be consumer-friendly. As a completely disclosed, fee-based privilege, your customers or members can rest assured you’ve always got them covered, and they know exactly what it’s going to cost.

Fully Disclosed and Fully Compliant

Fully disclosed means that your personal and/or business account holders understand their overdraft limit, resulting fees and the ability to choose the coverage that meets their needs. As the industry leader in overdraft privilege, we have established a set of Critical Success Factors focused on service, revenue and risk control. In a regulatory environment that is constantly changing, you can depend on us to always help you meet or exceed regulatory compliance.

You can customize details such as your program’s parameter settings; make adjustments based on applicable regulatory agencies; or refine marketing and communications materials based on your customers and your community. In as few as 8 to 10 weeks, you’ll have an overdraft privilege program that is uniquely yours.
