Amid COVID-19, League urges for Ohio credit union relief from TCPA

Published by: Emily Leite

As your credit union proactively connects with members experiencing financial challenges during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) should provide immediate relief from Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) requirements that may inhibit your ability to offer timely communication with your members. That’s why the League recently provided comments to the FCC, urging a reconsideration of the TCPA’s current restrictive nature during the COVID-19 crisis as it results in less flexibility, transparency, and protection from critical service providers, like credit unions. Immediate relief from restrictive or uncertain TCPA provisions would go a long way in helping to ensure the continued success of Ohio credit unions in times of crisis through proactive communication to members through their preferred medium.

If your credit union is experiencing TCPA related service challenges in communicating with your members, reach out to League SVP of Advocacy Emily Leite for additional information.
