eDOC Innovations announces that it will provide help services to clients who are required to make changes in order to conform to new Truth in Savings regulations. Over the course of the next few months, two significant changes to federal regulations will be taking place that could potentially affect not only the data credit unions archive but the format in which that data is represented to members. “eDOC is moving quickly to make every reasonable effort to help credit unions, who have not yet made changes to their statements, meet the fast approaching January deadline for compliance,” states Christiansen, Director of Sales and Marketing.
Christiansen continues, “These regulations require that a credit union must separately disclose on each periodic statement, as applicable, the total dollar amount for all fees or charges imposed on the account for paying checks or other items when there are insufficient or unavailable funds and the account becomes overdrawn; and the total dollar amount for all fees or charges imposed on the account for returning items unpaid. These totals must be presented for both the period of the statement and for all year-to-date amounts. Furthermore, the presentation of these totals is specifically dictated to require gridlines to highlight them for the consumer.”
These new totals and presentation rules are required for periodic statements provided by a credit union starting with the first statement period that begins after January 1, 2010.
