earnings allowance

Definition

A bank calculation on funds available that can be used to offset bank service charges. This enables the bank to charge lower service fees for large customer accounts because large accounts have higher earnings allowance. It is within the bank's discretion to set the earnings allowance but it is usually based on the US Treasury bill interest rate.
