Fifth Third Early Access
On January 17, 2014, Fifth Third Bank announced that it will no longer offer new customers its Early Access deposit advance service after January 31, 2014.
Effective January 1, 2015, Fifth Third Bank is making changes to its Early Access deposit advance service.
The following is a summary of the changes:
- Lower Cost: Fifth Third is reducing the cost of the Early Access transaction fee from 10% of the amount of each advance to 3% of the amount of each advance. For example, if you advance $100 on or after January 1, 2015, you will be charged $3 instead of $10 for that advance. This will go into effect for each advance made after 9 p.m. ET, December 31, 2014.
- More Time to Repay: We are increasing the repayment deadline for each advance from 35 days to 45 days. Therefore, any advance or portion of any advance that is still outstanding as of January 1, 2015, must be paid in full by the 45th day from the date the advance was drawn, or the amount will be automatically debited from your associated checking account. (Please remember that Fifth Third will automatically repay your advance from your next direct deposit of $100 or greater until the advance is paid in full.)
- Reduced Maximum Advance Period: We are decreasing the number of months that you may advance your maximum credit limits from six months to three months. If for 3 consecutive months you have advanced the maximum amount of your credit limit, you will be ineligible for an advance for 30 days following the 3rd month. For example, if you advanced your maximum credit limit in October, November, and December of 2014, as of January 1, 2015, you will be ineligible for an advance for 30 days.
