Brief Explanation of Overdraft Cap
The overdraft cap boundaries the amount that banking institutions sends via private payment or the Fed wire network. This cap limits a lender’s daylight-overdraft exposure.
The overdraft account cap varies from one standard bank to another. It is a multiple of each lender’s risk-based capital. The cap is applicable not only to banking institutions but also to banking institutions, broker firms, and lending institutions, as well as other banking institutions.
