I sourced this information from publicly-available data from the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (the "FFIEC").
- 633 financial institutions collected a net total of $11.682 billion in overdraft fees in 2019.
- Together, three banks (JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo) collected approximately $5.32 billion in overdraft fees just by themselves, a sum that constituted 45.5 percent of all overdraft fees.
- The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (regulator of all banks with "NA" or "National Association" in their name) regulates sixteen of the top twenty institutions overdraft fee generators.
- Although it has one of the most substantial balance sheets in the United States, Citibank finished 19th in overall OD collection.
- Woodforest National Bank, the bank with offices in Wal-Marts, pulls well above its size. Woodforest received $155.4 million in overdraft fees, even though it only held $817.8 million in consumer deposits. To put that into context, consider that at JPMorgan Chase, the ratio was 0.68/100.
- The share of revenues derived by overdraft in individual checking accounts varies significantly from bank (or credit union) to bank. For example, overdraft fees constituted 89.2 percent and 74.1 percent of all transaction account revenues at USAA Federal Savings Bank and First Convenience Bank, respectively, but only 22 and 11 percent at Fifth Third and Citibank, respectively.
