NationalPennOverdraftSettlement.com is administered by Epiq Systems and the lawsuit was first filed back in June of 2012. Class members in the National Penn Overdraft Settlement contend that the bank charged overdraft fees on debit transactions when the account was not actually overdrawn. The bank charged these fees based on account balance and not ledger balance (the primary difference between the ledger balance and available balance is checks that the company or individual has deposited in his account, but which the bank has not yet made available for use). Since the available balance tends to be lower than the ledger balance more overdraft fees were incurred.
Please note National Penn was purchased by Branch Banking & Trust Company in 2016 so some court documents may refer to National Penn as Branch Banking & Trust Company depending on the time of the document.
