Chase Waives Certain Charges for Consumers Affected by Hurricane

August 29, 2012, Written By Lynn Oldshue

Chase is helping its customers in Mississippi and Louisiana who are in the path of hurricane Isaac by waiving Chase fees charged from August 28, 2012 through August 31, 2012.

Chase sent out an email to customers in those areas saying it wants to help where it can and it is waiving the following fees:

* Overdraft Protection Transfer, Extended Overdraft, Returned Item and Insufficient Funds Fees for deposit accounts.

* Late fees on credit cards, business and consumer loans, including mortgages, home-equity, auto and student loans.

* If you can’t get to one of the Chase ATMs, it won’t charge a fee for using an outside-the-network ATM from now through August 31st (but that bank may charge you).

* Chase will generally waive the early withdrawal fees on CDs to help customers with their cash flow.

When possible, the bank will be increasing staff and extending hours at key branches in severely affected areas once they reopen.
