Congress passed an amendment to the Electronic Fund Transfer Act in December that ordered regulators to make the change.
The new rules from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) still require that all ATM fees be disclosed before a consumer makes a transaction.
The charges can come from using a “foreign” ATM, or one outside of a person’s bank or credit union. Those fees have become so common, the consumer bureau said, that having a sign to notify consumers of a potential cost is no longer valuable.
