Sec. 4301. Findings and purpose

-STATUTE-

(a) Findings

The Congress hereby finds that economic stability would be

enhanced, competition between depository institutions would be

improved, and the ability of the consumer to make informed

decisions regarding deposit accounts, and to verify accounts, would

be strengthened if there was uniformity in the disclosure of terms

and conditions on which interest is paid and fees are assessed in

connection with such accounts.

(b) Purpose

It is the purpose of this chapter to require the clear and

uniform disclosure of -

(1) the rates of interest which are payable on deposit accounts

by depository institutions; and

(2) the fees that are assessable against deposit accounts,

so that consumers can make a meaningful comparison between the

competing claims of depository institutions with regard to deposit

accounts.

(a) In general

Except as provided in subsections (b) and (c) of this section,

each advertisement, announcement, or solicitation initiated by any

depository institution or deposit broker relating to any demand or

interest payable on amounts deposited in such account, or to a

specific yield or rate of earnings on amounts so deposited, shall

state the following information, to the extent applicable, in a

clear and conspicuous manner:

(1) The annual percentage yield.

(2) The period during which such annual percentage yield is in

effect.

(3) All minimum account balance and time requirements which

must be met in order to earn the advertised yield (and, in the

requirement associated with each such yield shall be in close

Board finds that any such disclosure would be unnecessarily

burdensome.

(c) Disclosure required for on-premises displays

rates of interest which is displayed on the premises of the

depository institution if such sign contains -

(2) a statement that the consumer should request further

information from an employee of the depository institution

concerning the fees and terms applicable to the advertised

account.

(d) Misleading descriptions of free or no-cost accounts prohibited

No advertisement, announcement, or solicitation made by any

depository institution or deposit broker may refer to or describe

meaning) if -

(1) in order to avoid fees or service charges for any period -

(A) a minimum balance must be maintained in the account

during such period; or

(B) the number of transactions during such period may not

exceed a maximum number; or

(2) any regular service or transaction fee is imposed.
