These days, it’s vital to ensure your finances are well-protected. Pacific Continental Bank takes extensive measures to keep your accounts secure. But it’s important you understand that you play a role, too.
Pacific Continental aims to keep you apprised of possible risks by sharing information, tools and ideas to protect what you’ve worked so hard to earn.
The Federal Reserve Board (FRB) has adopted revisions to Regulation E (“Reg. E”) that require consumers to opt-in to their financial institution’s overdraft protection service for ATM and one-time debit card transactions before overdraft fees may be assessed on a consumer’s account. The new Reg. E revisions requiring consumers to opt-in to overdraft services do not apply at Pacific Continental Bank. The bank does not allow its clients to overdraw their account at an ATM or when they make a purchase using their debit card unless they have a signed and pre-approved line of credit in place. It’s important to understand that checks and automatic bill payments are not covered under these new rules, so they may be subject to overdraft charges; however, there is no need to “opt-in” to additional overdraft charges related to checks or bill payments.
If you are at risk of facing foreclosure, your lender may contact you directly. If you are contacted by your lender, try to work with the lender to assess your ability to repay the debt, as well as to consider other options. The letter or notice that you receive may contain the toll-free phone number for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), 800-569-4287.
HUD-approved counseling agencies are available to provide you with the information and assistance you need to avoid foreclosure. Foreclosure-prevention counseling services are provided free-of-charge by nonprofit housing counseling agencies working in partnership with the Federal Government. In addition,as part of the Homeowner Affordability and Stability Plan (HASP), the Making Home Affordable initiative allows eligible borrowers to refinance or modify their existing first mortgage.
