1 Eligible recurring transactions: Most recurring direct deposits and pre-authorized debits are eligible. Examples of common recurring direct deposits are payroll, CPP/QPP, disability payments, dividends, and government deposits such as Employment Insurance and provincial parental insurance plan (PPIP). Examples of common recurring pre-authorized debits are pre-authorized bill payments and loan or mortgage payments where you set up pre-authorized instructions with your mortgage, loan, credit card and/or other provider directly from your CIBC Smart Account. Recurring pre-authorized fund transfers that you initiate (i.e., if you use telephone banking, ATM and/or online banking to set up) to other CIBC deposit, credit card or line of credit accounts, or to accounts at other financial institutions, are not eligible for the fee waiver. For further details, consult with your advisor or telephone banking representative to determine whether any given pre-authorized debits or direct deposits are eligible for the fee waiver.
