On July 7, 2020, the CFPB issued its final Payday, Vehicle Title, and Certain High-Cost Installment Loans Rule (Small-Dollar Rule), which includes the rescission of mandatory underwriting requirements. Although the CFPB’s original rule became effective in 2018, the compliance dates are currently stayed pursuant to a Court Order pending litigation by industry trade associations. The stay is expected to be lifted as soon as this summer.

Compliance with the Rule’s payment withdrawal restrictions, notice and record-keeping requirements for covered loans will require strong compliance management systems and effective training for organizations impacted by the rule.  This webinar provides an overview of the final rule requirements and implementation guidance to ensure your bank or credit union is prepared before the compliance stay is lifted!

This timely event covers:

  • CFPB Payday Rule coverage and exclusions
  • In-depth review of the payment provisions
  • Rule provisions affecting NCUA PALs and Non-PALS loans
  • Impact of recent agency guidance for depository institutions
  • FAQs related to payment transfers and payment notices
  • Operational considerations for processing consumer payments on covered loans
  • Implementation strategies for small entities AND MUCH MORE

BONUS: Attendees will receive a printable/downloadable Small-Dollar Rule regulatory compliance checklist!
