Federal bank regulatory agencies have served notice that deposit advance products, sometimes known as bank “payday loans,” will soon be subject to significant new restrictions and heightened supervisory scrutiny.

The Supervisory Guidance is open for comment for 30 days.
This Client Alert considers the proposed OCC/FDIC Supervisory Guidance in detail, and also addresses the narrower response to the CFPB study issued by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the “Board”) that applies to State-chartered member banks.
