INTERCHANGE EXEMPTION LISTS ISSUED
updated 07/15/13 11:25 AM
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.

Five federal regulatory agencies including the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), have approved a final rule that modifies the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 (HFIAA). The final rule applies to loans secured by properties located in special flood hazard areas and implements provisions related to the escrowing of flood insurance payments and the exemption of some detached structures from the mandatory flood insurance purchase requirement. The final rule also implements provisions in the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 (the Biggert-Waters Act) relating to the force placement of flood insurance.
