Bank of America Corp (NYSE:BAC): For over a year, an arm of nonprofit Pew Charitable Trusts has urged financial institutions to voluntarily adopt its one-page model disclosure form to summarize checking-account policies and costs. The nonprofit claims that bank disclosure forms are usually comprised of dozens of pages of legalese and fine print, which makes it far too difficult for consumers to find important information in regards to checking-account features, like overdraft fees. In the middle of pressure from Pew’s consumer-banking policy arm and Democrats on Capitol Hill, on Wednesday, Bank of America uncovered a simplified disclosure form which summarizes key account features, rates and fees, and incorporates various recommendations by Pew. The move suggests that five of the nation’s top 12 banks have agreed upon adoption of new disclosures. J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) Citigroup Inc C +1.87 percent, Capital One Financial Corp COF -0.07 percent, and Fifth Third Bancorp FITB +1.27 percent have already agreed to use simpler disclosures along with several credit unions, Pew stated on Wednesday.
