CFPB credit card fee and late payments deadline extended

Just weeks after labeling credit union service charges as “junk fees,” the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, (CFPB), is back at it again, only this time, they are looking at credit card fees and late payments. Last week we told you about the recently issued advanced notice of proposed rulemaking from the CFPB related to information from credit card issuers, consumer groups, and the public regarding credit card late fees and late payments, and card issuers’ revenue and expenses. There are several questions that only credit unions will be able to respond to, so we need your help.

To protect your credit union from any potential future rulemaking, please take a moment to send a customizable email to the CFPB using League-provided prompts. In total, the comment opportunity explores thirty-eight specific questions. Please respond to any that your credit union also deems important.

The deadline to file a comment has been extended, and all comments are now due by Aug. 1, so there is still time to submit your own comment. If you have any additional questions about this proposed rule or how to get involved, reach out and connect with the League’s Director of Regulatory Affairs, Sean Brown.

Contact Sean Brown for questions or assistance.

Expanded telemarketing rules impact member outreach

The credit union difference is best activated when credit unions can freely connect with their member-owners without regulatory inference. That's why your League responded to a recent Federal Trade Commission (FTC) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) proposing expanded call records and record retention requirements that would inhibit credit union member outreach efforts. As prudentially regulated, member-owned financial cooperatives, credit unions already comply with a federal and state regulatory framework wrapped around member outreach.
