The Chicago-based Alliant Credit Union announced on Monday that it will no longer charge members for overdraft fees or fees for non-sufficient funds on all checking and savings accounts. This decision was significant because Alliant is the largest credit union and one of the largest financial institutions to eliminate those fees.

“Alliant has never relied on fees, unlike some other banks and financial institutions.
