Proposed Rule Being Drafted
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has begun consumer testing of model disclosure forms for prepaid cards.

The bureau issued an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking in May 2012 seeking comments and information from the public about general-purpose reloadable (GPR) prepaid cards.

The CFPB is now drafting a proposed rule and testing model disclosure forms. It expects to complete testing in April and issue a proposed rule regarding prepaid cards this spring, likely in May.

Credit unions can comment on the model disclosures on the CFPB’s website, and will also have an opportunity to do so during the proposed rule stage.

If your credit union issues GRP prepaid cards, the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues encourage you to review and comment on the model disclosure forms to help shape the proposed rule before it is issued. Take action today by visiting PowerComment!
