Federal Reserve enforces limits on credit card application fees

PREMIER Bankcard, as a financial institution has been in compliance with the rules, and regulations implemented by the Federal Government in regard to credit cards. Miles Beacom, the CEO of this financial institution says that the price controls imposed by the regulations affects the way companies can price for risk. This institution that is well known for providing high risk individuals with credit cards ensures all the applicants are fully aware of the fees and terms and conditions associated with the cards before applying for one. The reason for the growing concern is the new set of rules being put in place to regulate the issuing of credit cards will further limit an individual`s ability to access credit or to restore their damaged credit.


The Federal Reserve regulators have recently introduced changes in how banks place fees on access to subprime credit cards and other services. These new rules will now assist in regulating fee limits for such bank transactions.


The Federal Reserve previously enforced Credit CARD Act provisions, of computing for service fees in relation with the amount of the credit card account’s initial limit available. This means that the service fees must not exceed 25 percent of the account’s initial credit card limit.


For credit cards at PREMIER Bankcard (service provider for First PREMIER Bank), service fees, are based on the risk being taken by the bank while offering the client a credit card. A large proportion of the charges associated with the credit card are also used to maintain significant reserves to cover cardholder default. While the fees may be slightly lower for people with good credit scores, those with not so good scores might have to pay a higher fee.


The Federal Reserve also said that it is serious in its efforts to observe provisions of the new Credit CARD Act. Common bank practices of charging fees at 25 percent of one’s initial available credit limit, for a period of one year will also be prohibited.


Miles Beacom, while assuring the compliance for Federal Regulations, also mentioned that while rules and regulations continue to shift and change, his organization remains committed to helping individuals receive a second chance when it comes to moving forward with their finances.
