Common-Bond Advertising Letter Issued
Following the NCUA's Letter to Credit Unions on common bond advertising requirements, federal credit unions with associational memberships are being urged to review their policies and practices, as they do periodically, to ensure their continued compliance with federal regulation.
CUNA is currently working with the NCUA to determine how many federal credit unions offer membership through an association.
The letter, which doesn't apply to state-chartered credit unions, addressed common-bond requirements in the Federal Credit Union Act and NCUA rules; requirements for accuracy of advertising in NCUA rules; and consequences of failing to comply with these requirements.
CFPB Law on Consumer Report 'Furnishers'
Companies—including credit unions, which supply information to credit rating companies—are being reminded by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) of their legal responsibilities when it comes to consumer disputes.
The CFPB is issuing a bulletin targeted at these companies, called "furnishers," making it clear that they are responsible for investigating consumer disputes forwarded by the consumer reporting companies.
The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) is talking with the CFPB about the bulletin and how associated regulatory burdens for credit unions can be minimized.

The Department of Business Oversight (DBO) has standardized electronic forms for weekly and quarterly reporting of local agency deposits and securities, allowing financial institutions to submit their weekly reports to the DBO electronically rather than through the U.S. mail. This change was made possible by Assembly Bill 2298, which took effect Jan. 1.
