08:01 EDTUSBU.S. Bank says to wind down Checking Account Advance
U.S. Bank will begin to wind down its short-term, small-dollar deposit advance product, Checking Account Advance, to align with final regulatory guidance issued by the Office of Comptroller of the Currency and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. “We recognize our customers’ need for short-term, small dollar credit,” said Kent Stone, vice chairman of consumer banking sales and support at U.S. Bank. “We are committed to finding new solutions that meet the needs of all of our customers and fit within the current regulatory expectations.” Effective Friday, Jan. 31, U.S. Bank will no longer offer Checking Account Advance to new checking account customers. Checking Account Advance will be discontinued for current customers on May 30. Customers who have an outstanding balance at that time will be offered extended repayment terms. U.S. Bank will offer other forms of credit to customers who qualify.

15:02 EDTUSBFed extends capital surcharge for SiFi banks comment period to April 3
The Federal Reserve extended until April 3 the comment period for its proposed rule to implement capital surcharges for the largest, most systemically important U.S. bank holding companies. The Fed extended the comment period to allow interested persons more time to analyze the issues and prepare their comments. Originally, comments were due by March 2. The proposed rule would establish a methodology to identify whether a firm is a global systemically important banking organization and would also establish the size of a firm's risk-based capital surcharge. The proposal is designed to further strengthen the capital positions of these institutions. Large U.S. banks include Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC).
