No Chase overdraft fees during coronavirus pandemic

No Chase overdraft fees during coronavirus pandemic

JPMorgan Chase must suspend charging any and all overdraft fees during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Why is this important?

Our country and our communities are feeling the economic impact of the coronavirus in the most devastating ways. My family is feeling it as well. I recently overdrew my account due to extra expenses for preparing for my state's "stay at home" order and having just started a new job. Instead of providing relief during this time, Chase charged two overdraft fees for a total of sixty eight dollars.

In this time of unprecedented crisis, JP Morgan Chase bank must do their part to ease the financial strain of this pandemic for their customers. They were bailed out in 2008 and again will inevitably reap the reward of the two trillion dollar stimulus package which favors banks and large corporations.

The deep economic impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus is just beginning, and we cannot make middle-class and lower-class consumers bear the burden. Ten million people have filed for unemployment in the last two weeks, and we not even through the worst of this global pandemic, let alone the profound longterm economic impact.

There is no recourse for consumers, however, as they try to get through this economic turmoil and global pandemic and provide for their families. It's unacceptable that JPMorgan Chase continue to make money off the backs of those that are struggling to make their rent, pay their utilities, and purchase groceries for their loved ones.


Reasons for signing

  • Ebay company charged my bank for product without asking for payment options. I was going to pay another way but didn't have opportunity and got overdrafted. I cannot deal with more than one overdraft fee. Maybe they will remove this one.
  • I have chase bank and I believe they should get rid of overdrafts.
  • This is not the time to maintain overdraft punishing fees. JPMorgan Chase needs to do the right thing.
