TIPs Bulletin 13-22 shows how the NCUA issued a final rule implementing certain statutory requirements of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that pertain to using credit ratings to assess credit worthiness of a security or money market instrument.

REQUIRED LOBBY NOTICES AND STATEMENTS
TIPs Bulletin 13-21 reflects on how Required Lobby Notices and Statements information hasn't been sent out for some time. Regulatory compliance for required signs and posters should be reviewed annually. Of note is the change to the signage for the Equal Housing Lender poster to NCUA’s Office of Consumer Protection.
