Credit unions seeking a safe harbor under the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Military Lending Act (MLA) final rule will have two new options come Oct. 3, 2016: 1) A credit union may verify a borrower’s status on the DoD’s database, or 2) a credit union may use a consumer report obtained from a nationwide consumer reporting agency to determine whether a borrower is a “covered borrower.” Credit unions interested in utilizing the first option have until Feb. 15, 2016 to notify the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) of their intent. This may be done by emailing the MLA helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
