Since 2000, Stellar Strategic Group has assisted over 1,400 institutions with executing overdraft notification letter campaigns in a timely and cost-efficient manner to produce maximum results.
Overdraft programs have become increasingly important to a financial institution’s bottom line, as well as a valued service to its account holders. With government and/or federal regulations (such as Reg E) greatly affecting the rules an institution must follow, now is the time to make sure that you are 100% compliant. It is more important than ever to do everything possible to protect this revenue stream. Regulators have been critical, and in some cases have fined institutions for not properly disclosing their overdraft program.
An important step in avoiding such issues is to fully disclose the specifics of your program to account holders. It can be a time-consuming process to prepare and send the required letters and disclosures, especially if this is done internally. Not only are you utilizing your own limited staff resources, but you may not be minimizing the costs associated with these communications.
