Key Coverage ZoneSM now helps clients avoid overdraft fees if they're only overdrawn by $20 or less at the end of day, as new terms begin
KeyBank (NYSE:KEY) is committed to helping clients move forward on their financial journey, and today announces changes to overdraft and NSF fees. Initially previewed earlier this year, new terms have gone into effect for Consumer and Small Business checking and savings accounts beginning September 16, 2022. The updates, meant to offer clients more flexibility and convenience and help them stress a little less about their finances, include:
-- Key Coverage ZoneSM: Client accounts overdrawn by $20 or less at the end of day won't be charged KeyBank overdraft fees. Clients are in the Key Coverage Zone.
-- Eliminated fees: Eliminated charges for non-sufficient funds (Returned Items)
-- Overdraft Protection Transfer: $0 Overdraft Protection transfer fees are being expanded to include transfers from eligible credit products (credit cards and lines of credit).
-- Reduced overdraft fees: Overdraft charges outside the Key Coverage ZoneSM and Recurring Overdraft fees are now $20.
-- Capped overdraft transactions: reducing the maximum number of transactions that would incur Overdraft charges from five (5) to three (3) at the end of each day. Remember, overdraft fees are incurred only when outside of the Key Coverage ZoneSM.
-- Streamlined customer experience: simplified transaction posting order that is more intuitive and easier for clients to understand when monitoring their accounts.

We know that unexpected overdrafts can happen and are proud to introduce Key Coverage ZoneSM as a safety net for our clients," said Daniel Brown, Director of Consumer Product Management at KeyBank. "In addition, eliminating NSF fees, along with our other overdraft enhancements, serves as the next step in creating greater flexibility for our clients. Our updated program reinforces our commitment to helping our clients take control of their financial journey."
