Automatic Teller Machines (ATMs) and the Law

How can you find out about ATM fees?

When shopping for a place to open an account to which you want to gain access with an ATM, find out the different institutions' terms. This information should be available from bank personnel (not necessarily a teller, but certainly someone behind a desk) as well as in the mandatory disclosure forms provided with each new account. You can also get this information in pamphlets, arranged by subject, at the front of the lobby.
