Surprised male holding monthly statementIt’s your bank account and you should receive a bank statement of what’s in it at no charge, right? After all many folks prefer paper statements because it’s how they bank, and keep track of their finances. Because of printing, postage costs, and fulfillment, many banks are now charging fees for paper statements to recoup the costs of providing them to their customers. Other banks have gone in the opposite direction and have done away with paper statements altogether thus eliminating the associated expense.
