If you're a customer or former customer of Redstone Federal Credit Union and have been charged overdraft or nonsufficient funds (NSF) fees that were not refunded between May 5, 2014, and July 1, 2021, we've got news for you. Redstone Federal Credit Union has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit by paying a substantial $3.7 million. This means you could be entitled to a payment and the chance to reclaim some of those hard-earned dollars.
Understanding the Settlement
Redstone Federal Credit Union, one of America's largest credit unions with over $7.5 billion in assets and a global membership base, recently faced two class action lawsuits. These lawsuits claimed that the credit union violated its own account agreements by charging overdraft fees based on available balances instead of actual balances. Additionally, Redstone Federal Credit Union was accused of charging multiple overdraft and NSF fees on transactions that had previously been rejected.
In response, Redstone Federal Credit Union has agreed to the $3.7 million settlement to resolve the allegations, although they have not admitted any wrongdoing. The settlement aims to compensate affected customers and address any harm caused by these practices.
What Does the Settlement Offer?
Under the terms of the settlement, eligible class members who were charged overdraft or NSF fees between May 5, 2014, and July 1, 2021, will have an opportunity to receive a monetary payment. The exact amount will vary based on the fees charged and the number of participants in the settlement. If you're a current Redstone Federal Credit Union member, you will receive an account credit, while former members will receive their settlement payment by check.
