Also, Don't Miss NCUA Webinar
The Federal Reserve has published two lists of financial institutions intended to help payment card networks and other entities determine which card issuers qualify for the statutory exemption from the Fed's debit card interchange fee standards (those under $10 billion in assets).

These two lists (click here) have been generated from financial institutions in existence on Dec. 31, 2012, according to available data.

Financial institutions have been grouped into two categories—"Exempt" and "Not Exempt"—based on the determination that an individual institution, together with its affiliates, has either more or less than $10 billion in assets.

If a financial institution believes any information is not accurate, it may file a correction request by emailing IssuerExemptionListsRegII@frb.gov.
