of 3 hours per respondent. Micro-data collection: approximate range of
40 to 100 hours per respondent, with an estimated average of 80 hours.
Estimated Total Annual Burden:
Survey questions: 500 respondents times 3 hours per = 1,500 hours.
Micro-data collection: 100 respondents (financial institutions and/
or service providers) times the estimated average of 80 hours = 8,000
Total burden = 1,500 + 8,000 = 9,500 hours.
General Description of Collection: The FDIC is planning a study of
the overdraft protection products offered by financial institutions and
the usage patterns among depositors in those institutions. The study
requires collection of data from financial institutions that are not
currently included in the Call Reports or other standard periodic
regulatory reports. These data will be collected in two parts: a survey
in which a sample of 500 state-chartered nonmember financial
institutions will be asked up to 88 questions about each type of
overdraft policy that they implement, and an additional micro-data
collection in which more detailed information will be collected from up
to 100 of these institutions. To minimize burden on respondents, the
FDIC will use automated data collection techniques wherever possible.
The data collection conforms to privacy rules and will not request any
information that could be used to identify individual bank customers,
such as name, address, or account number. All data from, and identities
of, the financial institutions will remain confidential. It is the
intent of the FDIC to publish only general findings from the data
Request for Comment

is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions,
including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the
accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection;
(c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the
information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the
information collection on respondents, including through the use of
automated collection techniques or other forms of information
technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start up costs, and costs
of operation, maintenance and purchase of services to provide the
