If you paid Overdraft Fees to Harris Bank, you may have recently received a payment from a class action settlement.1

Case Background

The purpose of this website is to inform you about a supplemental distribution in connection with the previously approved Settlement of this class action lawsuit brought against Harris Bank addressing the order in which Harris Bank posted Debit Card Transactions to consumer deposit Accounts, and the effect the posting order had on the number of Overdraft Fees the bank charged its Account holders. The Settlement was approved by the Court in August 2013.

You were a member of the Settlement Class if you had a Harris Bank consumer deposit Account that was opened anywhere other than in Illinois and accessible with a Harris Debit Card between April 23, 2004 and October 4, 2012; or had a Harris Bank consumer deposit Account that was opened in Illinois and accessible with a Harris Bank Debit Card between April 23, 2000 and October 4, 2012; and were charged one or more Overdraft Fees as a result of Harris Bank’s practice of posting Debit Card Transactions from highest to lowest dollar amount.

In December of 2013, Phase I Distribution payments were made to all eligible Settlement Class Members who did not timely opt-out of the Settlement prior to Court approval.

On October 29, 2019, the Court entered an Order on Joint Stipulation and Proposal for Phase II Distribution of Settlement Funds to participating Settlement Class Members (the “Phase II Distribution Order”) that directed the Parties to distribute the remaining Settlement funds to all eligible Settlement Class Members. To be eligible to receive a Phase II Distribution check, Settlement Class Members must have: (a) received a Phase I Distribution check that was timely negotiated; and (b) the Phase II Distribution award must total $5.00 or more.
