CUNA Seeks Feedback on CFPB’s Proposed International Remittance Transfers Rule to Extend Temporary Exception and Provide Clarifications

Mon, Apr 28, 2014

Washington, District Of Columbia

CUNA is seeking credit union feedback to their Regulatory Call to Action through May 12 on the CFPB’s recent proposed rule to modify its international remittance transfers rule. CUNA continues to advocate to the CFPB to improve the remittance rule, including to provide a much higher exemption level for credit unions. CUNA is interested in how these proposed changes would affect the processing of international funds transfers at credit unions and their payment providers. The CFPB will accept comments for 30 days following publication in the Federal Register, which is expected shortly.    

The proposed rule would extend for an additional five years a temporary provision that permits federally-insured credit unions and other depository institutions to estimate certain pricing disclosures. This temporary provision is set to expire on July 21, 2015.
