NOL policy, final derivatives rule on NCUA’s May 20 agenda

May 13, 2021

The NCUA will issue a request for comment on the Normal Operating Level (NOL) policy at its May 20 meeting. The meeting will take place at 10 a.m. (ET) via live audio stream at NCUA.gov.

The NOL is the desired equity ratio for the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. The board sets it at between 1.20% and 1.50%, and CUNA supports NCUA working to maintain the NOL at 1.30% whenever possible.

CUNA supports the derivatives rule as proposed, believing the proposed changes retain key components while providing flexibility.

The complete agenda is:

  • Board briefing, share insurance fund quarterly report.
  • Request for comment, share insurance fund Normal Operating Level policy.
  • Final rule, Parts 701, 703, 741, and 746, derivatives.
