eTrain: Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) & Fair Debt Collections Practices Act

 

Fair Credit Reporting Act

Changes abound with the credit union's responsibilities to fairly and accurately report information on borrowers to a Consumer Reporting Agency. By July 1, the credit union must have policies and procedures in place for reporting correctly, testing its reporting and handling member complaints/inquiries regarding the information it has reported.

In addition, you will need to begin to gear up for offering a risk-based pricing or credit score notice to consumer loan applicants. They also have made a slight enhancement to the mortgage credit score notification. These changes are effective January 1.

We'll cover not only these two important changes, but also the basics of what the Fair Credit Reporting Act requires of credit unions as users of reports for credit, non-credit and employment purposes; and furnishers of information to consumer reporting agencies.  You won't want to miss it!

Fair Debt Collection Practices Act

Credit unions are not subject to the federal FDCPA when collecting on their own behalf, but did you know that California along with many other states have similar acts that will apply?

This webinar is designed to ferret out the do's from the don'ts of collection efforts. With collection accounts soaring, it has never been more important to be sure that everyone involved in the process is aware of the rules.

You’ll get the answers to these and other questions:
  • Do I have to send a written confirmation of the consumer's debt?
  • Why does the member insist I stop calling him at work?
  • If the member's attorney is not returning my calls, can I call the member?
  • My member works during the appropriate call hours, what am I supposed to do?

Who Should Attend?
Credit union staff that need to understand or comply with the rules for collections practices, especially in these positions:

  • Collections
  • Lending
  • Compliance
