The New Military Lending Act (MLA) Regulations: Compliance Risks And Challenges
About This Course:
The DOD recently issued new regulations implementing the Military Lending Act (MLA) that will have a major impact on financial institutions.

For the first time special financial protections for military borrowers will be applied to credit products issued and serviced by many banks and credit unions, including credit cards, certain student and auto loans, features of some deposit products, and other installment loans. The new regulations limit the terms of credit for military borrowers, including capping the interest rate, and also require institutions provide additional financial disclosures.

This webinar will familiarize you with the MLA requirements of most concern to lenders. Also, analyze potential compliance challenges and risks created by the new regulations, focusing on implementation, and will discuss the MLA's relationship to other servicemember laws.

Understanding these requirements and challenges is critical in light of the close attention that regulators, including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), have paid to military borrowers in recent years.
