NCUA’s new member business lending rule, effective Jan. 1, is one of the biggest changes to credit union business lending in decades. The agency received hundreds of comments from credit unions supporting the proposal and outlining how it would help them better serve their members.
To turn around recession-related increases in repossessions, CUs have beefed up their loan-assessment processes, initiated faster action on collection procedures, and worked diligently to help members avoid repossessions.
It’s time to consider increasing CUs’ member business lending cap, Texas governor and presidential candidate Rick Perry told more than 250 credit union representatives at the Iowa Credit Union Convention.
NCUA has released its new call report form and accompanying instructions, which become effective Sept. 30. For credit unions engaged in commercial lending, most notable are the updates reflecting the January 2017 changes to the member business lending rule.
