Learn how the CFPB can help you

Can my bank/credit union charge me a fee to use another bank or credit union's ATM?


Yes. Both your bank or credit union and the owner of the ATM can charge you a fee. 

Your bank or credit union must disclose its fee in writing when you open your account or when it adds a new fee. The ATM operator must disclose its fee in writing at the ATM itself.
