The Consent Form for Overdraft Services (A-9 form) provides your customer with the information they need to know about overdrafts and overdraft fees. In addition to serving as a disclosure of the appropriate information, it also facilitates a customer’s opt-in election by mail. Customers are also able to opt in over the phone, in person, or electronically.
When you include an account’s Reg E Opt-in election in the extract file imported into ODP Manager, ODP Manager can determine whether an account has already opted in or has not yet responded with a Reg E election. This means that your customers will receive the appropriate letter content based on their Regulation E Opt-in choice.
Strunk’s Welcome letter, Reinstatement letter, and Reg E Opt-In Followup letter templates make sure that your customers are aware of their options to opt in and that they know whether they already have the ATM and Everyday Debit Card transactions covered by their Overdraft Privilege limit.
The Welcome and Reinstatement letters sent when a limit is assigned or reinstated can include the Consent Form for Overdraft Services and can inform the customer of other options to opt in: by mail, online, in person, or by phone.
The ODP Manager software can identify which customers have not opted in and have an OD limit, in addition to other criteria. This allows you to communicate with these customers on an ongoing basis to send letters that explain the Reg E opt-in benefits and opt-in methods and that provide a consent form.
Strunk can also facilitate your customer’s online opt-in by creating a Reg E opt-in form and Reg E opt-out form that mirrors the content in your ODP Manager letters. You would then add links to these forms to your website.
Let ODP Manager expand your options to allow your customers to choose Overdraft Privilege coverage for ATM and everyday debit card transactions. Please contact Strunk Support at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or for more details.
